Mazi discharge

Q: My question is that, some times it occurs that we both my wife and me sleep together and I have a discharge during sleeping and this fluid touches the body of my wife. Is ghusal compulsory for both or for only the husband?


A: If mazi comes out, then ghusal will not be compulsory. However it will have to be washed. If it comes on to the clothing, it is impermissible for one to perform Salaah with such clothing.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
