Semen coming out without desire

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If semen was ejaculated from its place of origin with desire but at the time of it coming out of the penis there was no desire, ghusl will be required. So for instance semen came out of its place of origin with desire, but before it could start coming out of your penis you squeezed and held your penis and thus stopped it coming out and after that you waited for your desire to subside and you let go of the squeeze upon which the sperm came out without desire, ghusl will be fard required [heavenly ornaments, page 73, point 1].

My question is what if you had an orgasm and semen was ejaculated from its place of origin and before it could come out of your penis you took forty steps, slept or urinated and after that sperm came out of your penis without desire would you still require ghusl?


A: Based on what we have seen thus far, ghusl will not become compulsory in such a situation. Refer to Shaami, vol. 1, p. 160.

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