Ruling on doing wudoo’ when one has food particles between one’s teeth


When we eat we get food particles between our teeth. If we do wudoo’ or ghusl and we cannot remove these food particles, is our wudoo’ or ghusl valid?


Praise be to Allaah.

Your wudoo’ or ghusl is valid even if there are some food particles left between your teeth, but it is better to remove them.
