If one has a sticky fluid come out of him during ghusl is he obliged to repeat it again? If the fluid comes out without desire it's not semen but either mazi or wadi I was doing ghusl and I suddenly felt I had to go to the toilet I held it in and when I touched my private part a sticky fluid was there and this was during ghusl is this considered semen that obligates repeating ghusl? If one urinates before ghusl and it comes out does it require a repeat and if one does not urinate but he performs ghusl and then some sticky fluid comes out of him without desire he believes it is either wadi or mazi does it require a repeat and is he sinful if he doesn't do ghusl again.



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

In order answer your question it is important to know and understand three possible fluids that may come out from ones private part

1. mani

2. mazi

3. wadi

MANI is an arabic word which means semen/sperm. In colour its is white and thick. This can be discharged due to a sexual dream or intercourse. If someone is hit in the back and discharges sperm, he is not required to perform a ghusl as it was not due to sexual arousal. (Maraqi Falah p.40)

The ruling with regards to semen coming out of one's private part due to arousal makes ghusl (having a shower) obligatory upon a person. Such a Person will be obliged to wash his whole body thoroughly and wash his mouth and nose.

MAZI comes out of one's private part at the time of foreplay. It may also come out due to excessive flirting with ones wife. In colour it is a clear transparent thin liquid.

WADI is a liquid that can occasionally come out of ones private part near the end of urination it can be the same colour as the urine (yellow). (Al lubaab fi Sharhil kitaab p.42)

Both Mazi and Wadi do not make ghusl obligatory upon a person. However if a person was in the state of wudho then his wudho will be void and he must repeat his wudho in order to touch the Quran and pray Salah.

So if you did Ghusl and this sticky fluid is white and thick then its semen and you must start your ghusl again. However if it is a sticky fluid that is transparent then this will be considered as mazi. Therefore you will not be required to repeat the whole ghusl in the case of mazi coming out rather you should just perform wudhu.

Only Allah Knows Best
