Semen Exiting After Urinating

16th May 2022


السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Question: I have a question do you need to repeat the ghusl if residue of the actual semen comes out after urinating and not before?


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer: Thank for your query. In reference to your query, when a person becomes impure, he should thoroughly clean his private parts to ensure that any residue semen exits the body before commencing. In your case where semen has come out after urinating, then if ghusl has already been performed then repeating it would not be necessary.[1] Any Salah performed with wudhu in the interim of performing ghusl and using the bathroom, will not need to be repeated. Moreover, if you had used the bathroom, slept or walked for a short while before performing ghusl then repeating the ghusl will not be necessary.


[Allāh Knows Best]

اغتسل من الجنابة قبل أن يبول أو ينام وصلى ثم خرج بقية المني فعليه أن يغتسل عندهما خلافا لأبي يوسف – رحمه الله تعالى – ولكن لا يعيد تلك الصلاة في قولهم جميعا. كذا في الذخيرة ولو خرج بعد ما بال أو نام أو مشى لا يجب عليه الغسل اتفاقا. كذا في التبيين
