Does Touching Semen After a Ghusl Necessitate Another Ghusl?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Question: Assalamu ‘alaykum. What does a person do if he makes ghusl and then touches something with semen on it? Does he have to make ghusl again? Also, what if he has a wet dream and there is a little semen on the blanket, but he does not was it? 


Wa ‘alaykum assalam.

I pray you are well.

No, touching semen again does not require another ghusl. If the semen is still moist then you would just have to wash the part of the body which came into contact with it. If the semen is dry then you do not need to wash anything, as once semen dries there is no transfer of impurity through contact with it. This is the case with the blanket too. (Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah)

Please consider taking one of our Fiqh courses. A structured study of a text will answer this and many other common questions. Doing so empowers one to live the practical life of a Muslim with ease. Many people find that life is much easier after studying fiqh.

May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
