Praise be to Allaah.

Please note that if the discharge of maniy is accompanied by feelings of desire, ghusl is required according to scholarly consensus. See al-Majmoo’, 2/111; al-Mughni, 1/266

With regard to maniy being discharged with no feelings of desire, the scholars differed concerning that. The most correct view is that if it is emitted with no feelings of desire, ghusl is not required but you have to do wudoo’. The evidence for that is the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him): “If water gushes forth then ghusl is required.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 206; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Irwa’, 125. See also al-Sharh al-Mumti’, 1/278. “Gushes forth” means that it comes out forcefully, with feelings of desire.

One has to distinguish between the kinds of discharge that come out; not every discharge that comes out of the private part is maniy for which ghusl is required. There is wadiy (a kind of fluid emitted after urination), maniy (fluid emitted at the point of climax) and various discharges experienced by women.

You have to know the difference between these and be able to distinguish between them. Madhiy and wadiy do not necessitate ghusl, rather what is required is to wash the private parts with water and do wudoo’.

It is proven in al-Saheeh that ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “I was a man who used to emit a great deal of madhiy, so I told al-Miqdaad ibn al-Aswad to ask the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about that. He asked him and he said: ‘Wudoo’ is required for that.’” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 132; Muslim, 303.

These discharges are not naajis (impure), but they break wudoo’.

If the emission of maniy is accompanied by feelings of desire, then ghusl is required. If it is not accompanied by feelings of desire then ghusl is not required. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

The difference between maniy and madhiy is that maniy is thick and has a smell, and it comes out in gushes when desire intensifies. Madhiy is a thin liquid that has no smell, and it does not gush out or come out when desire intensifies, rather it comes when desire has calmed down.

Wadiy is a liquid that comes out after urinating, a few white drops that appear at the end of urination.

 This is a description of these three things.

With regard to the rulings on them, wadiy is subject to the same rulings as urine, in all aspects.

Madhiy is somewhat different to urine with regard to purification, because it is less naajis, so it is sufficient to sprinkle water on it. So one should put water on the area (of the clothes) affected, without squeezing it or rubbing it. Similarly a man should wash his entire penis and testicles even if no madhiy got on them.

Maniy is taahir (pure) and there is no need to wash what it gets onto, unless that is to remove any marks or traces, but it necessitates ghusl. Madhiy, wadiy and urine, on the other hand, necessitate wudoo’.

It seems that your situation is that of a person who is sick, so you should refer to a doctor or specialist. We ask Allaah to grant you a way out from every difficulty, for He is All-Hearing, Ever Responsive.

And Allaah knows best.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
