Answered by Molana Ishaaq Hussain


I was awake one day in the bath I thought about sexual stuff now when I got out I suddenly felt an urge to go to the toilet before I could go to the toilet something with force was felt from my private part like as if urine was coming out this happens sometimes to me when i have an urge to urinate

I look down to make sure no urine came out and I saw some sticky fluid I was thinking to myself It is not mani as it was not thick also I very rarely discharge mani whilst awake also I did not masturbate when thinking of sexual things so what I did was I washed my hands and washed the private parts and prayed did I do something wrong is this considered mani or mazi what came out? as I know mazi is sticky as that's what it looks like to me



In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Mani (sperm) is a white thick fluid, which is discharged at the time of ejaculation. This necessitates a fardh ghusul on its emission. Madhi is a thin clear liquid, which is discharged at the time of arousal without ejaculation. This necessitates wudhu on its emission. Wadhi is a white thick fluid, which has no smell and is discharged either before or after urinating. This necessitates wudhu on its emission. (Maraqi Falah p.150)

It will be necessary that whenever madhi exits a person, he must wash his body part and also his clothing upon which it has reached.

Sayyidna Ali raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrates that i used to get pre-seminal discharge frequently. Being the son in law of the prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) i requested a man to ask him. So the man asked the prophet sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam about it. He said perform ablution after washing your organ. (Sahih Bukhari p42 v1)

Madhi is regarded as a impurity, therefore if it was to fall on one’s body or clothing, etc then it is necessary that it be washed.

Only Allah Knows Best
