Would Ghusl be Necessary if there was an Erotic Conversation over the Phone?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Mujahid Hussain.​


I and my husband are having a long-distance relationship. My question is that we do make some love on video call like I want to ask if I don’t get a proper orgasm and I just rub my fingers over the clitoral area and feel satisfied. Is ghusal is wajib after that? As no penetration takes place at that time. Please answer.

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


Ghusal is only necessary if there is penetration or ejaculation.[1] However, one should ensure it doesn’t lead to masturbation.
