Is the nasal mucous after waking up from sleep (at night) pure, since I remember reading a hadith about satan staying in it? Also is it necessary to clear the mucous for water to reach the inner nasal lining during wudhu or ghusl? JazakAllah.
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Nasal mucous is pure. If the nasal mucous is such that it prevents the water from reaching the nasal lining then one should remove it at the time of washing the nose for wudu and ghusl. This is especially important in ghusl, as it is compulsory to wash inside the nose during ghusl.
And Allah Ta'ala knows best
