To Bathe or To Wash After Ejaculation
  • Question:

    Is it necessary to take bath after having ejaculation or just washing the semen from the body parts would be enough?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    It is necessary by consensus that if one ejaculates they must perform ghusl (ritual bath) whether it was as a result of intercourse or not. If only pre-seminal fluid was emitted, then it is sufficient to wash the body part as well as wash the fluid off from wherever it touched.

    And Allah knows best.
