The answers on Hawramani.com are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can
view Ikram Hawramani's credentials
on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions
of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
Is it mandatory to face qibla for ghsul and wudu?
Facing the qibla when performing wudu is a Sunna, but it is not obligatory.
As for facing the qibla when performing ghusl, there is no evidence for this being a Sunna, therefore it is neither obligatory nor recommended.
And God knows best.
