In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

1. In principle, if the density of the water remains unchanged the water will remain pure, hence it will be permissible to continue making Ghusl with that water.[1] However if either of the two qualities from the three qualities[2] of the water change, it will not be permissible to utilize that water for Ghusal.

2. If waswas’s (Whispers and thoughts) occur you should over look them and continue with your Ghusal.

And Allah Ta‘ala knows best
