Becoming a ma’zoor due to constant discharge

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have read on many trusted sites that, urethral discharge is impure. However, if someone is getting this discharge a lot and it is difficult to control, can they be excused from washing it constantly? I experience a lot of anxiety and stress and is probably why I am getting this type of discharge. I know from experience. I don’t want to be stuck in the toilet for a long time or use a lot of water.

1. So what can I do? I’ve read somewhere else that a girl used to experience this discharge because of severe headaches, so she was advised that its not the normal urethral discharge.

2. Doesn’t it make you najis because its coming out of the place where urine comes out?



1. If the discharge is coming out so often that you qualify to be a ma`zoor then you will only need to make wudhu at the time of every salaah, and the wudhu will then remain for as long as that salaah time remains.

2. The discharge is najis. You may place some tissue or sanitary pads etc. to avoid your clothes getting soiled.

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