Answered by: Maulana Sibghat Ullah




After ghusl from intimacy if one walks and urinates a bit and makes sure throughout and after ghusl nothing has come out but then a short while after ghusl he realizes a sticky thin fluid like Madhi comes out and not Maniy (semen) would he have to do ghusl again or is the urine/walking/sleeping ruling just for the emission of Maniy after ghusl?



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




There are three fluids, which come out of one’s private parts.

  1. Mani: The discharge of semen accompanied by sexual lust. This discharge tends to be thick. Ghusl is necessary for it
  2. Madhi: Also known as prostatic fluid. It is a white thin, sticky fluid that is released during foreplay or kissing. Wudu is necessary for it.
  3. Wadi is a white cloudy fluid that is thin and warm and has no smell. It is generally released after urinating and occasionally before. Wudu is necessary for it.[i]


Regarding your question, the discharge which comes out is Madhi. Ghusl would not be compulsory in such a situation. However, wudhu will be necessary.


Only Allah knows best.
