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).

Q: Should I wash both my blankets when I have a wet dream?

Not necessary to wash them every time. If it became wet, when it dries the impurity is not transferred. So you can use them and you will not become impure.

Ghusl and Migraine

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I have a question regarding ghusl and fasting. As a newly married couple we engage in intercourse every night. To perform ghusl do I, as the woman, need to was my hair completely every day? Do I have to do it before fajr salaah in order to fast? I suffer with terrible migraines after I wash my hair as my house is very cold which also affects. Or can I wash it later in the day (before noon) and make Qaza of my fajr?

A:
When taking a Ghusl (bath), it will be compulsory to wet all the hair and to ensure that water has also reached the roots of the hair. If this is not done, the Ghusl will not be valid.

If the woman’s hair is tied into plaits then it is not compulsory upon her to open the plaits and wet the hair when bathing. She must just ensure that water reaches the roots of her hair. However, hair that is already loose at the time of Ghusl must be washed completely. Failing to do so will render the Ghusl invalid.

If one commences the fast in an impure state, the fast is valid. So you can start your fast before taking a bath.

This is not a valid enough reason to delay the Fajr and make it Qadhaa. The Salaah has to be made on time.

If this is the case then one will have to sacrifice the emotions and desires and ensure that Fajr is made on time. Allah is aware of your sacrifice and rewards accordingly.

May Allah Ta'aala grant you a blissful marriage and adherence to the Deen, Aameen.
