If a Person Who is Junaub enters the Sea or a Pool with the Intention of Ghusl, is it sufficient for Him?

If a person is Junub, and he finds a spring or a pool and enters it, and washes himself with the intention of performing Ghusl due to Janabah, would that be sufficient for him?

Yes, it would suffice him, if the water was abundant, being more then two pitchers, based upon the narration of Ibn Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, who said: I heard Allaahs Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, when he was asked about water which is in open land from which predatory animals and riding beasts drink: If the water is more than two buckets, it will not hold filth. [1] It was narrated by the Five and is in the wording of Ibn Majah while in the narration of Ahmad: Nothing makes it impure. [2] And Allaah is the Granter of success. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.

[1] Abu Dawud no. 63 and At-Tirmithi no. 67. [2] Ibn Majah nos. 517, 518 and Ahmad 1:235.
