Q: I am a 22 years old male. I am getting white fluid discharge frequently from my penis without any sexual arousal and without any erection. But when I am sexually aroused I get sticky colorless fluid discharge. For the past five months, I do ghusal almost every morning because of this white fluid discharge thinking that it may be mani (semen) to be on safer side. It becomes difficult for me to pray Fajr on time. I am very much depressed. Doctor found no problem with me. It is not thick as mani. I don’t know whether sperm is present in this white fluid discharge. When I am awake I wash private parts and do wudu. But my question arises only after sleeping everytime. My question is:
1) Do I have to do ghusl every time when I get this white fluid discharge when sleeping? (90% of the days I don’t remember having erotic dreams) 2) Is this mazi or mani? (semen)?
Note: This white fluid comes even when I am not sexually aroused. It comes not more than 2 or 3 drops every time.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
