Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
I often pass a thick white liquid. How do I tell the difference between maniy (semen) for which I need to take a bath (ghusl) and that which the fuqaha’ call wadiy?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
“Wadiy” in Arabic refers to the thick white fluid which is passed after passing urine. One of the differences between them is that maniy is emitted when there is (sexual) desire, and wadiy is not emitted as a result of sexual desire, it is emitted after passing urine.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
