Our shaykh, what is the difference between:
‘Al-Mani’ (sperm), Al-Wadi’ (pre/post urinal discharge), and Al-Mathi’ (pre-ejaculation fluid)?
Also, which of them is a nullifier from the nullifiers of Wudhu and obligatory to make Ghusul from?
Al-Mani is a thick white fluid, sexual desires is what causes it to come out, and it’s obligatory to make Ghusul from. And it is pure upon what’s correct.
Al-Mathi is a sticky white fluid, sexual desires is what causes it to come out, and could come out due to other than that. It is obligatory to make Wudhu from it, and it is impure by Ijmā’ (consensus of the scholars). (i.e. there is no difference of opinion in regards to its impurity)
Al-Wadi is a white fluid and comes out most of the time accompanied by urine, and it takes the same ruling as it. It is impure by Ijmā.
