Question & Answer
I masturbate, and I do not really know how to differentiate between different types of discharges?

Hello , I am a 17 year old teenager and I tend to masturbate. I tried before and I stopped for a good few years , however now I am finiding myself going back to it frequently and I feel so guilty. My question is after masturbation I dont know when to do ghusul because i dont know when maniy stops coming out and I dont really know how to differentiate between different types of discharges and so what often happens is I can sit 2 or 3 days not praying because I think even if I do ghusul I still feel something come out. Please advice me and tell me whats best. Thank you.

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)”

Dear sister, the practice of masturbation is absolutely prohibited in Islam, and a believer should fear one's lord and should try ones level best to avoid this evil practice. Islam teaches selfcontrol and patience, masturbation is the opposite of what Islam teaches.

Dear sister, There are three types of discharges coming out of the women's vagina it may be maniy, madhiy or regular discharge (or moisture).

Maniy: It is thin and yellow or maybe white for some women, It smells like pollen when it is still wet, There is pleasure and desire when it is emitted. it is followed by languidity. In this case, the gusul becomes obligatory.

Madhiy: It is white (clear) and sticky, and it is released when one feels desire, its release does not give pleasure nor does the desire comes to an immediate end after its release, it is not followed by languidity. In this case, wash the private organ and perform ablution.

Regular Discharge: This is the discharge that comes from the uterus; it is clear and a woman may not notice it. It Invalidates ablution.

Thus one has to determine what has come out of the private organ according to what has been mentioned above. If any of the characters resemble any of the characters mentioned in the above categories, then it would be considered that very fluid. but if one is not sure about what has been emitted then one should use one's knowledge to decide and apply the appropriate ruling. 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.
