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

first of all I would like to request you that my question should be treated confidentially.

I am married . With the grace almighty me and my wife are steadfast in deen and prayers. My wife is having continues sneezing in the morning once she take ablution . We went to a doctor. He said she is having some kind pf pennism she should not wash her face in the morning and specially she should not take head bath till noon in the day. but we never took his advice and she continue to take head bath and pray fajr

My question here is some time we used to have contact without me putting my part into her but by putting my fingers in to her and give her the satisfaction .she becomes wet just like the perfect way. I want to know if a bath is obligatory on her on this condition or she can just wash under her waist and and take ablution and pray.

I do this only to avoid her taking a head bath in the morning. I hope you understand my question clearly and reply me personally. I was long waiting to clear this with someone whom I can trust .

Thank you,

hope to receive a reply soon.

Ghusl after no intercourse

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.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 5 Surah Maidah verse 6 (part):

…..If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity bathe your whole body.


The acts which make the ‘ghusl’ obligatory before one can offer their prayers are:

  1. Sexual intercourse
  2. Full release of sexual emission (mani).
  3. If the male private organ touches the female private organ.
  4. Post menstruation (for women).


If the male private organ has not touched the female private organ, and the woman has not reached sexual climax/orgasm, then the absolute majority of the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that the woman will not be considered to be in a state of ceremonial or major impurity and thus it would not be obligatory upon her to perform the ‘ghusl’ or full bath of purification before she makes herself available for prayer. If the wife washes her private parts and performs the ‘wudu’, it would suffice for her to perform her prayers.


As long as the wife does not reach sexual climax, the mere touching or inserting of one’s fingers into one’s wife’s private parts do not violate her state of ceremonial purity.


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,
