Assalamu 'alaikum. When performing the ritual bath should our private parts be covered or is it fine if we do it being completely naked? JazakAllah for your answers.

Assalaamu Alaykum, Sufficient ghusl means that you rinse your mouth and nose, then you wash your entire body with water, even if that means plunging yourself into deep water in one go. Complete ghusl means washing your private parts and anywhere else that is contaminated with traces of impurity, then you do full wudoo’, then you pour water over your head three times, making sure that it reaches the roots of the hair. Then you wash the right side of the body then the left side.According to a hadeeth narrated by ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) she said: When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did ghusl in the case of janaabah, he would start by washing his hands, then he would pour water with his right hand into his left and wash his private part. Then he would do wudoo’ as for prayer, then he would take water and make it reach the roots of his hair, using his fingers. When he saw that it was thoroughly wetted, he would pour three handfuls of water over his head. Then he would pour water over the rest of his body. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (273) and Muslim (316). so i think it is safe to say No you do not cover your private area as water needs to reach every place. Insha Allah this helped u
