Discharged Transparent Liquid after Rubbing Penis: Does It Necessitate Ghusl or Just Ablution


Assalamu alaikum,I am not feeling comfortable while asking this question but i want to ask because i want to make sure.I am a 21 years old male. I was rubbing my penis but then i felt there is some movement like fluid or something and when i saw there was a slight drop of transparent liquid that came out.Does it validate ghusl(junub) or do u have to wash that part or clothe in order to pray.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The liquid that comes out when thinking about lust or seeing what provokes it and is transparent and sticky is called Mathy, and it is impure. Its ruling is the ruling of urine, it is obligatory to perform Istinjaa’ from it and purify the clothes that are stained by it, but it is not obligatory to perform Ghusl from it.

As regards masturbation, it is forbidden, so you must repent to Allah from it.

For more benefit on the prohibition of masturbation, please refer to Fataawa 179859, 376036, 87952 and 81167.

For more benefit on Wady discharges and the difference between semen, Mathy, and Wady, please refer to Fataawa 82518, 300880 and 292780.

Allah Knows best.
