Question & Answer
Does anyone have to take a bath if they release semen from penis for performing Salat.?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah says in the Quran:...If ye are in a state of 'ceremonial impurity' or 'sexual impurity' bathe your whole body. QURAN[5:6]

The acts which make Gusul obligatory and constitute 'ceremonial impurity' or 'sexual impurity' are:

  1. having Full sexual intercourse with wife.
  2. Full release of sexual emission (wet dreams, orgasm).
  3. If the male private organ touches the female private organ.
  4. Post menstruation i,e. after the menstural period.

Thus if semen is released the full bath becomes obligatory for performing Salah. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
