Q & A Wudu' and Purity

Q & A: “wudu and full release…”


Q. Does wudu break even without full release from the guy?


In al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya it has the following statements:

“…if a man urinates and then secretes semen (mani) then he must perform the full bath (al-ghusl) if it was from an erection and if it was not then he must perform the wudu’ as mentioned in al-Khulasa…”

“…In al-Durr al-Mukhtar it has: and (it is obligatory) to perform the ghusl only (after) (semen) has been emitted from the body by agreement because it falls under the ruling of the inconspicuous (released from its place) which is the semen of the man and the fluid of the woman. The semen from men is whitish in colour whereas the ejaculatory fluid of women is yellowish in colour. If she washes the area and ejaculatory fluid is actually released then she must repeat the ghusl but not any Prayers otherwise there is no [repetition] (if it is through desire) meaning pleasure even though it carries the same ruling of one who has a wet dream…”[1]

“And in the Shamiyya (his saying: out of pleasure) is connected to his statement of secretion or release. He has cautioned in that if he secreted or released by being struck or carrying a heavy load on his back, then there is no ghusl for him according to our position in opposition to the Shafi`is as mentioned in al-Durar…”[2]

رجل بال فخرج من ذكره مني إن كان منتشرا عليه الغسل وإن كان منكسرا عليه الوضوء .كذا في الخلاصة . 

في الدر المختار: ( وفرض ) الغسل ( عند ) خروج ( مني) من العضو وإلا فلا يفرض اتفاقا؛ لأنه في حكم الباطن (منفصل عن مقره ) هو صلب الرجل وترائب المرأة، ومنيه أبيض ومنيها أصفر، فلو اغتسلت فخرج منها مني، وإن منيها أعادت الغسل لا الصلاة وإلا لا ( بشهوة ) أي لذة ولو حكما كمحتلم

 وفي الشامية: ( قوله: بشهوة ) متعلق بقوله منفصل، احترز به عما لو انفصل بضرب أو حمل ثقيل على ظهره، فلا غسل عندنا خلافا للشافعي كما في الدرر
