Female Ejaculation and Ritual Bath

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mathabah.org
Answered by Shaykh Omar Subedar


I was going through female ejaculation on Google and some researchers indicate and scientists say that sometimes when women are sexually excited or aroused the fluid i.e. semen can be secreted even without an orgasm. Then do women have to perform ghusl every time they are sexually excited or aroused even if there is no orgasm or sexual pleasure? But I think it can also happen to men when they are sexually aroused and they can discharge semen without orgasm or sexual pleasure. It will make life difficult for women since female ejaculate is very difficult to differentiate from other female discharges and is not as easy as in the case of male ejaculate and other discharges from men. Please clarify since I am very depressed due to satanic whispers and it is making my life difficult. JazakAllah


Ghusl (ritual bath) will only be necessary when semen has been discharged through ejaculation caused by an orgasm. The fluid that is secreted prior to the orgasm is known as pre-seminal fluid (madhi) which does not necessitate ghusl however it does necessitate wudhu.
