Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
i want to know that when we are sleeping with wife and befor starting sex we both discharge a sticky Liquid which wets our cloths, should we change the cloth if we have not made intercourse and mouny has not not discharge,
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
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 ones private organs:
- Wadi (a thick white secretion immediately after urination by some people)
- Madhi (a sort of slow release of lubricant just prior to a full sexual discharge)
- 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 before making oneself available for prayer.
Your Question: i want to know that when we are sleeping with wife and befor starting sex we both discharge a sticky Liquid which wets our cloths, should we change the cloth if we have not made intercourse and mouny has not not discharge,
The sticky liquid which is released prior to the release of mani or full-sexual discharge is known as the madhi in Islamic Jurisprudence terminology.
If one intends to enjoy conjugal relations with ones wife, then a ghusl would indeed be obligatory upon the husband and the wife before they make themselves available for prayer.
But if only the madhi is released and one for any reason does not have full sexual intercourse, one need not change ones clothes nor would a ghusl or full bath be obligatory in Shariah; one should simply wash ones private parts and the parts of the body and clothes where the madhi might have touched, perform their wudu, and make themselves available for prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
