Yellowish Discharge and Wudhu

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I have read the fatwa about discharge. What if the discharge is yellow, but not thick and does not have an odor at all? Is my salah accepted? Doesn't then go under the ruling that it does not break the wudu?

I have read that some sanitary towels can be the reason why the normal discharge can turn yellow, because it contains something that changes the color of the discharge when it is moist in the vaginal area.

A:
A discharge that appears yellowish but has not odor at all, will be considered the normal secretion from the front organ. This will not break wudhu. It is true that when the discharge dries up on the underwear or pads it turns yellow. So that will not reflect the true colour and has to be ignored.

So there is no need to make wudhu in this case. Your salaah will be accepted.

Porn and Fluid Discharge

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Sometimes when I watch pornography little white fluid comes out from my penis. Can I make prayer without bath?

A:
That fluid is called Mazi. Mazi is colourless and sticky, not white. It breaks Wudhu but not Ghusl. Wash the area, change or wash the clothes, make wudhu and Salaah.

For the sake of Allah, please stop watching porn. It is extremely harmful.
May Allah Ta'aala protect you, Aameen.

Relations after Menstruation before Bath

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Can marital relations be restarted after menstruation period, before taking bath?

A:
If the lady has a full ten days of menstruation then it will be permissible for her to have a sexual relation with her husband before bathing.

If her usual menstruation is less then ten days, e.g. five days, six days, etc. then in this case she is not allowed to have a sexual relation until she has a bath. In this case a sexual relation will be permissible if one Salaah time passes without her bathing. After one Salaah time passes and the Salaah becomes Qadhaa on her then it will be permissible. She should remember that staying in that condition without bathing and missing a Salaah is a major sin.

Allah Ta'aala knows best.

Urethral Discharge and Bath

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I have a question about urethral discharge. Sometimes, especially when I'm constipated and strain, a very small amount of urethral discharge occurs resembling semen. It looks identical to the discharge that occurs during intercourse. Do I have to perform obligatory ghusl?

A:
The drops which come out at the time of urinating is Wadi and not sperm. Wadi breaks Wudhu and not Ghusl. Ghusl does not become compulsory after Wadi has been released. (Raddul Muhtaar V1 P471).
