Forgetting To Wash A Limb In Ghusl


If I forgot to wash a limb or any of the Farz of Ghusal and I remember later on, must I take Ghusal again or just do what I left out? Is there any time frame for this? i.e. How long after the Ghusal can this be done?  


Only the portion of the body which was not washed during the Ghusl should be washed. This could be done for as long as nothing which invalidates the Ghusl occurs.

قلت: أرأيت رجلاً توضأ فبدأ برجليه قبل ذراعيه أو بذراعيه قبل وجهه أو مسح رأسه قبل أن يغسل وجهه أو ترك بعض أعضائه حتى جفّ ما قد غسل أو فعل ذلك في غُسله ثم غسل ما بقي؟ قال: يجزيه غُسله، ووضوؤه تامّ، ولكن أفضل ذلك أن يبتدئ بيديه ثم بوجهه ثم بذراعيه ثم يمسح برأسه ثم يغسل قدميه.

الأصل للشيباني (1/24) دار ابن حزم 


قال: وإذا توضأ الرجل بعض وضوئه ثم لم يتمه حتى جف ما قد غسل، فإن أبا حنيفة رضي الله عنه كان يقول: يتم ما قد بقى ولا يعيد على ما مضى، وبه نأخذ.
