Sperm release during ehram
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
If one who is performing the pilgrimage of Hajj and has sexual intercourse or intentionally releases his ‘mani’ or sperm during the prescribed Hajj days, one would have deemed to have violated one of the prohibition of the pilgrimage and an atonement of a sacrifice would indeed be due from such a person.
But if one unintentionally or accidentally in the process of performing the Hajj pilgrimage lost control of his emotions and reached an orgasm whereby ‘mani’ was actually released from his private parts during the prescribed Hajj days….although his Hajj pilgrimage would be considered valid, what happened was indeed a sin and one must seek sincere repentance from their Lord for their error.
Because the sin committed was unintentional and accidental, the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that although a sacrifice is not due as atonement, it would be prudent that the person offers a sacrifice as atonement and seeks sincere forgiveness from Allah Subhanah for his error….it is expected that he will find his Lord Forgiving and Merciful, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
