Answer:

 

Cleaning after Urine

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: my question is gusl farz on precum now also let me know that precum is mani or mazi and for salat in case of precum just cleanning or ghusl is necessary.


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.10

Wadi is a thick white secretion discharged (by some people) after urination. It is considered impure.  Aishah said, " Wadi comes out after urination. The person should wash the private parts and perform ablution.  It is not necessary to perform ghusl. This is related by Ibn al-Mundhir.  Ibn 'Abbas related that "mani” (ejaculation or full sexual discharge) requires ghusl.  As for “madhi” (prostatic fluid or initial sexual discharge) and ‘wadi’ they require a complete purification."  This is related by al-Athram.  Al-Baihaqi has it with the wording, "Concerning ‘madhi’ and ‘wadi’, he said, 'Wash your sexual organs and perform the same type of ablution as you perform for prayer."'

 

Other than urine, there are basically three types of discharges that are released from one’s private organs:

  1. Wadi (a thick white secretion immediately after uniration by some people)
  2. Madhi (a sort of slow release of lubricant just prior to a full sexual discharge)
  3. Mani (a full sexual discharge)

 

If only Wadi or Madhi is released, one does not require a ‘ghusl’ or full bath to purify himself; he must wash his private parts and the part of his clothes or body where the ‘wadi’ or ‘madhi’ has touched, do the wudu, and he would be available for prayer.

 

If Mani is released, then it becomes obligatory to perform a ‘ghusl’ or full bath to purify oneself.

 

Your Question: also i am from bombay where there are public toilets without water sometimes because of emergency i urinate without water or stone so after reaching home should i have ghusl or just clean the private parts.

Anas related that the Prophet (saws) said, "Stay clean of urine, as the majority of punishment in the grave is due to it."

Ibn 'Abbas related that the Messenger of Allah (saws) passed by two graves and said, "They are being punished. But they are not being punished for a great matter (on their part). One of them did not clean himself from urine and the other used to spread slander."

Related by Muslim and Bukhari.

 

Regardless of where one relieves oneself, it is absolutely obligatory on a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to cleanse himself after answering the call of nature with water, or stone, or rock or in their absence any other cleansing agent.  A believer should never ever urinate and not cleanse his private parts immediately after. 

 

If one in an absolute case of emergency has to urinate, and despite his best efforts is unable to find a cleansing agent to cleanse himself would be required to wash his private parts and the parts of his body or clothes where the urine drops might have touched at the very first opportunity when a cleansing agent is available.  A full ghusl is not obligatory for one answering the call of nature. 

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
