Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
I am suffering from nerve damages near my bladder due to which even the slightest excitement leads to a very small amount of STICKY RELEASE, please help do I need to perform ghusl every time. Even if I think or while sleeping this happens .This stickiness is liquid not solid like sperm
The liquid which is being released is not called Mani which makes ghusl obligatory, but it is Madhi, which does not make the ghusl obligatory.
Besides urine three liquids can also come out of one’s private parts.
1. Madhi (pre-coital fluid), is a thin clear liquid which is discharged at the time of arousal without ejaculation. This necessitates wudu on emission.
2. Mani (Sperm) is a white thick fluid which is discharged at the time of ejaculation. This necessitates a ghusl on emission.
3. Wadi is a white cloudy thick fluid which has no smell and is discharged either before or after urinating. This necessitates wudu on emission. (Hashiat Tahtawi p.100)
If the Madhi is coming out regularly, then you may be classified a Mazoor, in which case one fresh wudhu for each salah will be sufficient.
One will become a Ma’zoor only if the state of impurity lasts for one complete duration of a Salah time. If throughout this time, blood, urine or any other impurities flowed or dripped continuously, not enabling one to make wudhu and perform the Fardh Salah with purity, then one will be known as a Ma’zoor.
For example, if the illness occurred 15 minutes before isha salah (the last portion of the duration of the magrib salah), then the actual time of being a Ma’zoor will be reckoned from the start of isha salah.
During this time if the illness stopped long enough to enable one to make the faraaidh of wudhu (face, arms etc…) and just the Fardh Salah, then one will not be considered a Ma’zoor.
After qualifying as a Ma’zoor, one will remain a Ma’zoor as long as the bleeding, discharge etc… does not stop for one full Salah time.
Upon becoming a Ma’zoor, it is not necessary for the bleeding to be continuous in the succeeding Salah times. It will suffice if the bleeding was for just a moment for one of succeeding Salah times for the person to continue to be considered a Ma’zoor.
A Ma’zoor shall make Wudhu for every Fardh Salah. The wudhu of a Ma’zoor remains valid for the duration of the Salah time and all the factors which break wudhu besides the factor responsible for making one Ma’zoor, will nullify the wudhu of a Ma’zoor. (Ahsanul Fatawa p.77 v.2 & Fatawa Darul Uloom Deoband p.298 v.1)
If your situation is so bad that you do not have time in which you are able to do the faraaidh of wudhu and read the Fardh Salah without the discharge returning then you will be considered a Ma’zoor thus it will be permitted for you to read Salah with this illness. You should do Wudhu for each Salah.
Regarding the status of your clothing the following two rules will apply:
- If the clothes soiled by the bleeding or urine become soiled quickly before the Salah could be completed, then it is permissible to read the Salah in that clothing.
- If the clothing does not soil quickly and one will be able to perform and complete the Salah without the impurity reaching the size of a dirham, (area of the hollow in the palm of the hand) then it will be necessary to wash it. Salah with such impure clothing will not be permissible. (Kitabut Taharah p.71)
