Confusion regarding the wetness on clothing

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I believe I have a madhi problem

Ok so everyday now when I get up its my routine to wash my private part because of madhi that I don’t even feel coming out and I don’t see it coming out, it’s just the smell or the mark I see on my pyjamas, but anyway now I just assume I have and just clean my private part, but even in the day time I don’t ever feel it coming out I think, nor do I know it has. 

Today for instance, I put my hand by my private area and smelt my hand and I don’t know whether I am confusing myself between this and sweat, it smells like madhi, but it’s only the smell and I felt no substance or nothing, nor do I even recall having any sexual thoughts or anything.. It seems like I have a problem. Any advice would be appreciated. 


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You may refer to the following fatwa for further information regarding the three types of fluids from the private part:


Furthermore, it seems like the wetness you are experiencing may be only sweat and none of the three impure fluids. As such, there is no need to worry.

And Allah Ta‘āla Knows Best
