I like to know about ghusl.
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:
to know about ghusl, this is happening daily to me when i come to office in the
mornning by some or the other reason my sperm get it is not big but a small dot
only. As i will spend whole day in my office in between that i will have to
pray for zohar and Asar as i do not have time to go back to home again and take
ghusl i heard from one of my friend that if u do not have time to take ghusl u
can wash that dirty place and do wudu and can pray and when you go back home
take ghusl, i want to know whether this is right or wrong
(There may be some grammatical and spelling
errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from

Male discharge and ghusl
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.
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
- Wadi (a thick white secretion immediately
after uniration 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.
…..when i come to office in the mornning by some or the other reason my sperm

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, the ‘mani’ or sperm is
a full and un-mistakable sexual discharge which is released through the private
organ of the man when one experiences sexual climax.
From what you have related in your question, in all
probability the drop/s that you experience are either some urine drops which
are discharged, or possibly ‘wadi’; and it is thus not required in Shariah that
one perform a ‘ghusl’ or full bath of purification before one makes themselves
available for prayer. All you need to do
if you experience such minor discharge is wash your private parts and the parts
of the body and clothes where this discharge might have touched, perform the
‘wudu’, and make yourselves available for prayer.
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,
