Because of Wetness do we need to take Ghusl?


It is human nature to go wet when they are excited. But do we need to take bath to get pure or just wadu would be enough?

  1. You weren't being too specific with your question but i assume you are referring to sex, If that is the case then yes. You need to take ghusl before you can be purified because wudu is not enough and if you pray without taking ghusl and just on wudu it wouldn't be valid ( both of you must 1st take a ghusl bath). I hope i helped.

  2. man get wet?

    • Men get pre-ejeculate that can be considered getting wet

      Pre-ejaculate (also known as pre-ejaculatory fluid, preseminal fluid, or Cowper's fluid, and colloquially as pre-cum) is the clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the penis during sexual arousal.

      Pre-ejaculate also acts as a lubricant during sexual activity, and plays a role in semen coagulation. and creates a more favorable environment for sperm survival.

      Is it need to do ghusal or wadu is enough?

  3. Assalaamu Alaykum,

    I think the unclear thing here is you are not describing whether you are referring to a male or female. Most of the time wetness is in reference to what happens to a female when she is sexually excited.

    So if you are talking about that, and you are asking whether a ghusl is needed for a female who got sexually excited and had a bit of wetness as a result, the answer would be no. She would not even need wudu unless she broke it for one of the standard reasons (wind, vomitting, bleeding, using the restroom). When it comes to females, the vagina is constantly producing wetness. It increases with excitement, but it is always present. It also increases and changes consistency around the time of fertility, even without excitement. It's basically a constantly self-cleansing mechanism. So if women had to bathe or make wudu for that, it would be never-ending.

    Women are required to take ghusl after menstruation, after sexual intercourse (whether she or the male climaxed or not), and after having an orgasm. Women can have orgasms and not have much wetness at all. They can have orgasms in dreams or by physical stimulation (including masturbation), separate from sexual intercourse. Orgasms require ghusl no matter what.

    As far as men are considered, like SVS described there is pre-ejaculatory fluid that can be released prior to climax. And men do not need ghusl for that; only for full orgasm/ejaculation (or sexual intercourse- even if for some reason it didn't result in a climax it still requires ghusl when completed).

  4. I would agree with the below posters. The question is if you are male or female. If you are male then any pre-a jocular it would be considered breaking your ghusul because it contains sperm. This is the case for men with or without an actual orgasm or climax. For females however it is different. Excitement can result in moisture discharge but this happens consistently throughout the day in minuscule amounts for different reasons and does not require a bath unless the female reaches climax. During the climax of a female the liquid discharge is different, specifically the consistency, the amount and the pH. Also the female climax causes other bodily reactions that causes the body to excrete fluids more than simple excitement without climax. For example sweating in the groin area and in the breast and chest area increases during climax and makes bathing to achieve cleanliness again essential. If you feel that your body is not clean or if you maintain a state of prolonged excitement which put your body in a state of uncleanliness, then I would suggest a bath. However a female if trying to keep her thoughts away from things that excite her for long periods of time typically should not experience these problems. Really there are standards that God gives us and standards that we should give ourselves for being clean enough to pray or two other things that require having your wudu.
    We are commanded to observe ghusul from God if we should cross certain boundaries, but we should also be aware of ourselves and have cleanliness standards if we feel dirty or unsuitable to present ourselves in front of God. I would say make yourself aware of these two sets of standards and defined them clearly to reduce confusion and help keep your thoughts under control.

    • Assalmualikum.
      I agree and thankyou for being both decent and logical.While most moulvi discuss about cleanliness as a mere compulsion , you discussed is as a personal standard.I totally agree and its true , that we must have an idea , how to present our selves to the supreme commander.Its not just a compulsion thing, but also a personal achievement and personal calliber which everyone must achieve before he or she presents himself or herself infront Allah.
      Trust me there are mo confusions , people just make them in their minds as to increase or decrease the issues causing them from being what they know , they are not.

  5. If a girl of age 20 plus get wet due to bad thoughts while she is waking. She is not sleeping at all. She feels uneasy and feel stress at private area. And there is much discharge. And she is wanting to avoid that thoughts but she could not do so. So is that necessary to take bath due to getting wet?? And if sometimes she feels like throbing at private area so then also take bath necessary? And if not so then does ablution break up? And what to do to avoid these thoughts and this situation? And pushing down the area between naval and vagina to get relax is also sin?? What should she do to feel easy and relaxe??

  6. I have a liquid discharge problem all time i have took medicine but it doesn't stop
    I want to ask does it break my fast because i have that problem any time in a day it does not stop ever do i need to do wuzu again n again n shower several times a day?

    • Assalaamualaikam

      It doesn't break your fast. If you can't help it breaking your wudu, just repeat the wudu before each prayer.

      • Ok thanks can i read Quran while discharge and do wuzu before reading it? If discharge continue during my prayer so does my wuzu valid for my prayer?

        • Assalaamualaikam

          Yes, you can read Quran, and your wudu will be valid for the prayer if your discharge occurs during the prayer - what you'll need to do is do your wudu as close as possible to when you're going to pray.


      • I have a liquid discharge problem most of the time do i need to take ghusul?

  7. If a girl get wet during sex chat or watching such xxx scene. Then ghusal is necessary?

    • Those activities are haram. If you are doing them, you should stop immediately. And yes, make ghusl, then do not do it again.
