Preventing one’s semen from coming out

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had an orgasm when I saw porn and suddenly when I realised that semen will come out, then by force I stopped my penis from releasing semen. Later on when I became relaxed and my penis got loose, nothing came out and after a while when I went for urination there also I did not see any semen in it. So does it break my ghusl or not?


A: If no semen was released, ghusal did not become compulsory. You should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for watching porn.

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