Nasihah (Advice): Avoid Controversy
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) emphasized very strongly to his Ummah to abstain from controversial issues with the words: “Indeed, the fortunate person is he who is saved from controversy, Indeed, the fortunate person is he who is saved from controversy, Indeed, the fortunate person is he who is saved from controversy, and whoever gets caught up in it and is patient (handles the issue according to Islamic etiquette and teaching), then good for him” (Abu Dawood, Hadith #: 4263, Narrated by Miqdad bin al-Aswad)
Q. If a woman has to use a vaginal inserting cream twice a day, does she need to take ghusl everytime she uses the cream?
(Query published as received)
A. Ghusl will not be necessary. If she is in the state of Wudhu, her Wudhu will break. If she is fasting, the fast will break by inserting the cream.
