Wudhu breaking through mazi coming out

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a 30 year old newly married male. When I touch or kiss my wife, a little amount of semen comes out. In this condition can I perform namaz by washing the affected area without changing clothes or underwear?


A: Semen (mani) comes out with force and desire. If there is no force then this is not semen but pre-coital fluid (mazi). Through mazi being emitted, the wudhu breaks and one will have to repeat the wudhu. Ghusal does not become compulsory.

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