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:

Assalamu Alaikum. please clarify this doubt : if someone asks his wife to masturbate him, is it necessary for the husband to perform the obligatory ghusl (like after intercourse) or is it sufficient to wash his private parts only.

 

(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.)

 

Answer:

 

Ghusl after sex discharge

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:

  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.

 

But when the Mani or a full sexual discharge is released, it would become obligatory for the person to perform a ghusl or full bath to purify oneself before making oneself available for prayer.

 

Your Question: .if someone asks his wife to masturbate him, is it necessary for the husband to perform the obligatory ghusl (like after intercourse) or is it sufficient to wash his private parts only.

Regardless of how one experiences a full sexual discharge (semen), whether it be through sexual intercourse, wet-dream, masturbation, etc..one would be considered to be in the state of major ceremonial impurity (janaba) and a ghusl or full bath of purification would be absolutely obligatory on such a person before he makes himself available for prayer.

 

The mere washing of ones private parts after a full sexual discharge of semen would not suffice to cleanse one from their state of major ceremonial impurity (janaba); it would be absolutely obligatory for one who is in the state of janaba to perform the ghusl before making 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.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
