Leaving out a fardh of wudhu

Q: Will a person's ghusal be valid if he didn't do the faraa'idh (i.e. put water in the nostrils etc.)? 

A: If any of the faraaid is left out (e.g. one did not put water in the nose or one did not gargle the mouth) the ghusal will not be complete. However, if any time later one inserts water in the nose or one gargles the mouth, then at that time, the ghusal will be complete.

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