Cervical Smear Test & Ghusl


Recommended Posts


Aww, respected Ulama, first I would like to thank you for this site, it’s very helpful, may Allah swt reward you for your efforts.

My wife recently went for a cervical smear test, the process involves a nurse inserting a plastic instrument through the private part and taking a swab of the cervix, does this make ghusl compulsory?


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Inserting a plastic instrument in the private part of a woman does not necessitate ghusl.

(و) منها (إدخال إصبع ونحوه) كشبه ذكر مصنوع من نحو جلد (في أحد السبيلين) على المختار لقصور الشهوة

(مراقي الفلاح المطبوع بحاشية الطحطاوي، كتاب الطهارة، فصل عشرة أشياء لا يغتسل منها: ص
101؛ العلمية)

And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
