Fardh ghusal

Q: If a person is sexually impure but he doesn't know what sexual impurity means, he doesn't know how a person becomes sexually impure and he also does not know that he is sexually impure but he takes ghusl janabah by the intention that he is going to take ghusl janabah, then will he become pure?

A: If he washed all the areas that need to be washed in a fardh ghusl and gargled the mouth and put water in the nostrils then he will be pure and the ghusl will be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
