Discharge after passing urine

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I suffer with bad thoughts that come into my mind during istinja. I always wipe and check to see if discharge came out and would see white discharge. It would worry me if mani came out and so I would check after passing urine and before cleaning. Sorry for this amount of detail. Because I used to feel discharge coming out I would check again and again.

1. Should I stop checking and always consider it to be mazi and not mani?

2. Also, in order for it to be mani, shouldn’t the volume of the amount be a lot. I always feel it’s a tiny bit. That’s why I’ve taken it to be mazi as it’s time consuming and bringing back waswas in to my life.


A: The discharge that comes out after urinating is not mani.

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