What is the Ruling of Islam to do ghusl (full ablution) when you are operated and how to do?
How should one behave if the doctor doesn’t let the operated organ to be washed? How should we take ghusl if we has just undergone an operation? Would it be enough to have only tayammum (dry ablution)?
To make this kind of a decision the doctor must be expert in his/her branch and also must be Muslim who is also caring halal and haram conditions. If this kind of a doctor says: “this organ or area of the body must not be washed after this operation or illness.” then doesn’t need washing. The other part of the body is washed and that part is left unwashed. It is just wiped over the bandage with the palm of the hand without washing it. If this also harms, then wiping over is also left. Then operated person prays and does other worship in this condition.
If the doctor says that washing would make harm for the whole body, then the patient doesn’t wash any part of his/her body. He/she just makes tayammum (dry ablution) and performs salah. In this condition, tayammum accounts for both ghusl (full ablution) and wudhu (ablution), thus you don’t need to do ablution again. If it doesn’t harm to wash the parts of ablution, then these parts and other parts that water doesn’t harm should be washed.
