Emission of semen without intercourse

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I know that it is compulsory for Muslims to take a shower after sexual intercourse (having sex) but what if there were no actual sex involved and your wife plays with you till you cum? She was still fully clothed. Its more like relieving himself but his wife does it for him, none of the discharge fluid touches him.


A: If there was no intercourse and there was no emission of semen, then ghusal will not be fardh. However if semen was emitted, then ghusal will be fardh.

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