Purification after Sexual Discharge
  • Question:

    Is it necessary to take a bath/ghusl when there is discharge after talking to my fiancé? Does washing the area suffice?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    If madhiy (pre-seminal fluid, a sticky transparent discharge when sexually aroused) exits the private organ, wudu (ablution) becomes necessary. Taking a bath will not be required unless maniy (semen) has ejaculted. You would wash the soiled areas of the genital and also the affected clothing. (See: Hidayah)

    And Allah knows best.
