Experiencing a discharge due to sexual thoughts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was at friends house and some of her guests were saying inappropriate (sexual) things and I was trying not to listen but when I did, I got weird feeling in my private area and like something should be put up in the area (private area) but I didn’t. I just sat there till the feeling left and when I came home, I went to the washroom and I had a bit more discharge than usual like it was kind of a lot. Should I do ghusul?


A: Clean yourself and wash off the soiled area. Ghusal is not compulsory.

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