Difference between mani and mazi

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What is the diffrence between mani and mazi?


A: Mani comes out with force and mazi does not come out with force, rather it comes out slowly and gradually. Though mani and mazi both are napaak, however through mani coming out, ghusal becoems waajib and through mazi coming out, wudhu breaks and ghusal does not become waajib.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
