Question:

 

Is it possible for women to discharge wadhi during the day without peeing? Or it is just vaginal discharge?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

 

Answer:

 

There are 3 types of fluid produced by the vagina in fiqh.

 

  • Discharge produced from within the vagina.
  • Discharge produced from the outer part of the vagina (Vulval).
  • Discharged produced from any of the two above.

 

In case one and two this fluid is not impure and does not invalidate wudu. However in circumstances 3 the fluid is considered to be impure and will invalidate the wudu. An example of this would be discharged that came from the uterus and not the vagina.

 

If a woman is sure that the discharge is within the first two categories there is no need for her to make wudu. However, if she is confused and cannot decide it is good for her to make wudu as a precaution.

 

Note: Circumstances 1 and 2 are more common in the female anatomy rather than circumstance 3.

(قَوْلُهُ: أَمَّا عِنْدَهُ) أَيْ: عِنْدَ الْإِمَامِ، وَظَاهِرُ كَلَامِهِ فِي آخِرِ الْفَصْلِ الْآتِي أَنَّهُ الْمُعْتَمَدُ
