Q: I wanted to know what exactly is mani and mazi. I know one is thick and one is thin but what about the excitement thing? Mani means you have to have a ghusal and mazi is just whudhu, but I’m not sure what they actually look like. Is mazi like water (just liquid) or is it a little bit thick and strechy?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
