Checking to see if mani was discharged

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is regarding madhiy and maniy. I read on a trusted website, that, if a person feels discharge come out and they forget to check it before doing istinja but can tell from washing that no discharge has come out then ghusl is not required. This is only because I get bad thoughts that come to my mind and I always check to see if maniy has come out, but I see nothing. 


A: If there is absolutely no discharge then ghusl is not compulsory.

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