Q: I have heard that there is a fluid which comes out of the male private part(not semen) which does not make ghusal necessary. Is it correct? And how can one tell the difference between the two fluids?
A: There are basically three liquids besides urine that come out of a male private part:
(1) Wadi – this is secreted after urine on account of some sickness.
(2) Mazi – Pre-coital fluid secreted at the time of arousal. It is thin and sticky.
In the case of both, only wudhu breaks.
(3) Mani – semen. If it comes out with desire, irrespective of whether due to fanaticizing, touching or relationship with one’s spouse, it will necessitate ghusal.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
