Regarding obligatory bath if pre-sexual fluids come out 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Abu Usamah

I want to know regarding  the Mazi which is not a semen which is a thin liquid. My question is that if this liquid Mazi comes of your penis by seeing nude sex photos of a woman or by just foreplay with your wife or by thinking intercourse,  required ghusl or not. I am in very much dilemma as I read behisti zewar. According to this book in one chapter or page it says if Mazi (thin liquid which is not semen) comesout bath is not obligatory and in another chapter or page it says bath is obligatory even Mazi comes out of your penis.

The emission of pre-sexual (Madhi) will nullify the wudu and not the ghusl. The area of the body or clothes that is soiled with madhi must be washed since it is an impurity. This is the correct view. Could you please point out the chapter and page where it is stated that bath is obligatory. This maybe an incorrect translation or reading, because it goes against the transmitted position of the Hanafi school.

Looking at ‘nude sex photos of a woman’ is haram in the Shari`a. Repent and resolve not to do the same again.
