Is a Ghusl Required When I Do Not Know if I Have Seen Mani or Madhi?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org
Question:  Salaam, I just wanted to ask a question regarding wet dreams. I woke up one morning with discharge on my garment. I am MORE sure that this was madhi than the case of it being mani. I think this because I do not recall having an orgasm, but I think there may been a dream but I cannot remember for sure. I am also a person who suffers from constant waswasa, and this is the reason why I would just like to confirm whether or not Ghusl is required for some who is more sure that the fluid was Madhi.

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Assalam’aleykum,I pray this finds you in the best of states.

Jazakum Allah khayr for your question!

A ritual bath is required in the situation you have described because you are not sure whether you have seen ejaculate (mani) or pre-ejaculate (madhi) upon waking up. [ Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar  ]

And Allah knows best.

I hope that the above answers your question. If something is unclear please do not hesitate to ask again.

May  Allah Most High grant you the best of this world and the next. Please keep us in your du’as!
