Pearl of Wisdom

when asked about which of speaking or silence was better, said, 'For each of these two there are harms, and when they are both safe from harm, speaking is better than keeping quiet.' They asked him, 'How is this so, O son of the Prophet (SAWA)?' He said, 'Because Allah Almighty did not send prophets and successors to remain quiet, rather He sent them with speech, nor is Heaven earned by silence, nor is quietness obligated for the vicegerency of Allah, and nor is protection from Hell sought through silence. This is all possible through speech.'

Question : #668 Category: Sexual Ethics & Morals
Subject: Ghusul
Question: Sallam,

My question is in regards ghusul for the state of junoob. will the ghusul be acceptable if the hair isn't washed,ie do the ghusul but have a shower cap on? Is it obligatory for a female to wash her hair during the ghusul.

Wasallsam and thank you in advance.
Answer: Alaykum Salam.

According to Sayyid Sistani, while doing Ghusl, one should wash the short hair which are taken as a part of the body.
Washing of the long hair is not obligatory. However, if one makes water reach the skin in such a way that those long hair do not become wet, the Ghusl is in order.
However, if it is not possible to make water reach the skin without washing those hair one should wash them so that water may reach the body.
