If a Person Who is Junaub enters the Sea or a Pool with the Intention of Ghusl, is it sufficient for Him?
Question:

If a person is Junub, and he finds a spring or a pool and enters it, and washes himself with the intention of performing Ghusl due to Janabah, would that be sufficient for him?
Answer:

Yes, it would suffice him, if the water was abundant, being more then two pitchers, based upon the narration of Ibn Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, who said: I heard Allaahs Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, when he was asked about water which is in open land from which predatory animals and riding beasts drink: If the water is more than two buckets, it will not hold filth. [1] It was narrated by the Five and is in the wording of Ibn Majah while in the narration of Ahmad: Nothing makes it impure. [2] And Allaah is the Granter of success. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.

[1] Abu Dawud no. 63 and At-Tirmithi no. 67. [2] Ibn Majah nos. 517, 518 and Ahmad 1:235.
