Release madhi no ghusl.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My question to you brother is ...when a couple come closer, hug each other and kisses with no intention of having sex, both of them become hot and horny and during this process a kind of secretion comes out from the private parts of both of them,(which is not semen (Mani), but a secretion which works as a lubricant). after the secretion is ghusul compulsary or can they clean their private parts, do ablution change their dress and go for prayer. please advise at your earliest.

Release madhi no ghusl
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.
Your Question: ..after the secretion is ghusul compulsary or can they clean their private parts, do ablution change their dress and go for prayer.
Other than urine, there are basically three types of discharges that are released from ones private organs:
- Wadi (a thick white secretion immediately after uniration by some people)
- Madhi (a sort of slow release of lubricant just prior to a full sexual discharge)
- Mani (a full sexual discharge)
Ones state of purification depends on what exactly is released from their private parts in Shariah, regardless of whether male or female.
If only Wadi or Madhi is released, one does not require a ghusl or full bath to purify oneself; one must wash their private parts and the part of their clothes or body where the wadi or madhi has touched, do the wudu, and one would be eligible to make themselves available for prayer.
But when the Mani or a full sexual discharge is released, it would become obligatory for the person to perform a ghusl or full bath to purify oneself before making oneself available for prayer.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.10
Wadi is a thick white secretion discharged (by some people) after urination. It is considered impure. Aishah said, " Wadi comes out after urination. The person should wash the private parts and perform ablution. It is not necessary to perform ghusl. This is related by Ibn al-Mundhir. Ibn 'Abbas related that "mani (ejaculation or full sexual discharge) requires ghusl. As for madhi (prostatic fluid or initial sexual discharge) and wadi they require a complete purification." This is related by al-Athram. Al-Baihaqi has it with the wording, "Concerning madhi and wadi, he said, 'Wash your sexual organs and perform the same type of ablution as you perform for prayer."'
The thin liquid or lubricant which is naturally released prior to full sexual discharge (mani) is known as madhi. If merely the madhi is released, regardless of whether from the man or the woman, one need not take a full bath or ghusl to purify themselves in order to offer their prayers. The washing of the private parts, and the parts of the body and clothes where the madhi might have touched would suffice for them.
But if a full sexual climax or discharge is experienced, regardless of whether male or female, one would be considered to be in the state of major or ceremonial impurity; and it would become obligatory upon the person to perform a full bath or ghusl before they can make themselves available for prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
