My question is that does ghusl become compulsory for a girl if she discharges after foreplay or thinking about sexual things without intercourse?

Please answer in detail with the reference of Hadith.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


Yes, ghusl is wajib (obligatory) anytime ejaculation occurs out of sexual desire.

Narrated by Umm Salamah (RA) that she asked the Prophet (SAW) regarding a woman who sees what a man would see (i.e. a wet dream). He replied (SAW), “Did she find pleasure (in that).” She replied yes. He (SAW) then said, “Then she should make ghusl.”[1]

And Allah SWT alone knows best.
