Discharge of Maniy from a woman without intercourse or having a sexual dream

Q: If a woman discharges a liquid without sexual intercourse or a sexual dream, should she perform Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity)? Do women have the same secretions as men; Maniy (sperm/vaginal fluids), Madhy (thin white viscid fluid secreted when having sexual thoughts or desire), and Wady (a thick white secretion discharged after urination)? Or does she have to perform Ghusl regardless of the kind of discharges that come out of her?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.If Maniy comes out from a woman with feelings of sexual excitement and pleasure, she is required to make Ghusl even if she does not have sexual intercourse or a sexual dream. (Part No. 5; Page No. 298) If Madhy comes out of her, she has to wash her private parts, and if Wady comes out of her, it is subject to the same rulings as urine and she has to wash it away. So the secretions of a woman fall into the same categories as those secreted by a man, and she is obliged to perform Wudu’ (ablution) if she wants to perform the acts of worship that necessitate Taharah (ritual purification), such as Salah (prayer) and others.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
