When does ghusl become wajib or fardh on females? Their private parts discharge fluid normally for the whole month, does that fluid make ghusl wajib? If fluid comes after sexual thoughts or due to husband’s touch but no intercourse occurred, does that make ghusl wajib on female? Kindly reply in detail, because my wife takes bath thrice a day just because of that fluid discharge.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 114/92/B=1433)

Three things make ghusl wajib on a woman: (1) Janabah i.e. major impurity caused by intercourse or ejaculation (2) Haiz i.e. menstruation (3) Nifas i.e. postpartum period.

The fluid that the private part of a woman discharges whole month it does not make ghusl wajib, but it breaks wudhu. If the fluid discharges in the form of mani (semen) with force due to sexual thought or by touching husband with lust then ghusl shall be wajib.

Allah knows Best!
