    Title: Regarding Taharah

    Question: Please make dua for me that I'm getting waswasa and make dua for the victory in dunya and aakhira. (1) There are many liquids coming out of penis. When the penis is erected, a liquid comes and after the erection another liquid comes. Are these two liquids same or which is Madhi? (2) How to clean the madhi on clothes (is it enough to sprinkle water on the place where is madhi?) (3) When cleaning najis dresses in washing machine, I put the impure dresses and pure dresses all together and wash once with washing powder, then I drain the water (let the water go), after that I add water twice separately and wash the clothes twice. Will this method of washing clothes make my clothes pure? If this method is wrong, please suggest me the best way to clean impure clothes in washing machine. (4) When I sleep, I drool. So, the drool spreads on my clothes and pillow. I can wash the clothes but what to do for the pillows and also, when the drool spreads on the pillow it touches my head also because of this problem I bathe everyday morning before praying Fajr. Give me a solution on this. (5) Should we wear a separate dress in the night? And also, how do we know if madhi comes when we are sleeping?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 218/184/N=3/1443)


    (1) The clear, smooth, creamy and thin liquid which comes out of penis during sexual practice or talking about lust, is madhi. And the special kind of thick substance that comes out with jerk on orgasm, and when it comes out, the lust usually disappears and the erection and stiffness of the penis goes away, that is semen. On discharging madhi only wudhu breaks, ghusl is not fardh. Whereas on discharging semen ghusl becomes obligatory.


    عن أبي عبدالرحمن، عن علي رضي الله عنه قال: كنت رجلا مذاء، فأمرت رجلا يسأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لمكان ابنته، فسأل، فقال: "توضأ واغسل ذكرك" (صحيح البخاري، كتاب الطهارة، باب غسل المذي والوضوء منه، 1: 41، ط: المكتبة الأشرفية ديوبند).

    عن علي رضي الله عنه قال: سألت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عن المذي: فقال: "من المذي الوضوء، ومن المني الغسل" (سنن الترمذي، أبواب الطهارة، باب ما جاء في المني والمذي، 1: 31، ط: المكتبة الأشرفية ديوبند)

    (لا) عند (مذي أو ودي)؛ بل الوضوء منه ومن البول جميعًا على الظاهر (الدر المختار مع رد المحتار، كتاب الطهارة، 1: 304، ط: مكتبة زكريا ديوبند، 1: 550-552، ت: الفرفور، ط: دمشق).

    قوله: "بل الوضوء منه إلخ": أي بل يجب الوضوء منه، أي: من الودي ومن البول جميعًا (رد المحتار).

    وأجمع العلماء أنه لا يجب الغسل بخروج المذي والودي كذا فى شرح المهذب (البحر الرائق، كتاب الطهارة، 1: 115، ط: مكتبة زكريا ديوبند)


    (2) It is not enough to sprinkle water on the madhi smeared on cloth or body, but it is necessary to wash it thoroughly with water only then the impure part of the cloth or body will become pure.


    (3) When the clothes are put in the dryer of washing machine and the water of the clothes is drained well, all the clothes become pure. However, it is advisable that first unclean clothes or the unclean part of it should be cleaned separately, then all the clothes are put in the washing machine and washed so that the pure clothes do not get impure with the impurity of unclean clothes. And there is no doubt about the cleanliness of the clothes washed in the washing machine.


    (4) The resin/saliva coming out of the mouth is not impure. So, if this resin gets into the pillow etc., it is not necessary to wash it, and if it touches into the head through the pillow, then the head will not be impure and ghusl will not be necessary. So don't bother to take a bath every morning because of the resin.


    (5) If you separate sleeping garment then it is better, for example, take off the pajamas and put on the lungi and take off the kurta and remain only in vest.
