Doubting whether wetness is mani or discharge when waking up

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I got up and noticed wetness but as I was having this kind of discharge most of the time nowadays and before sleeping there was some discharge, so I didn’t do fard ghusl and read fajr and recite Quran. But I was feeling like I was sinning as the amount of discharge was not this much before sleeping and on the other hand it was like normal discharge which I was experiencing normally. Now is my salah valid or not?


A: If you are in doubt as to whether it is mani (semen) then ghusl should be done.

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