Islam On Site: Madhi in Islam ~ Hi readers all! Madhi is a type of fluid that is ordinary out of the penis or vagina. The fluid is not sperm, menstruation, or it is not. The fluid is Madhi. Madhi is a fluid that comes out of the penis or vagina because someone imagines sex, wants to have sex, or when a husband and wife is having a foreplay. This fluid is clear and sticky. The discharge does not make a person faint.
Before I explain Madhi further, firstly, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to this theme. The hadith I mean is as follows;
عن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه قال : كنت رجلا مذّاءً فأَمرتُ المقداد أن يسأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فسأله . فقال : فيه الوضوء . متفق عليه
From Ali ibn Abi Talib radliyallahu ‘anhu, he said,” I am a person who often goes out his Madhi. I then ordered Miqdad to ask the Prophet the sallallaâhu aih alaihi wa sallam. Miqdad then asked him. He then said, “There is an obligation for ablution in it.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
All readers! If we look at the hadith above, we will know that Ali bin Abi Talib was ashamed to ask something that was privative to the Prophet Muhammad. Of course, we already know, that the relationship between the two of them is very close. He is the family of the Prophet Muhammad. In addition, he also included the son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad. That is the reason why in Islamic teachings one is required to maintain manners with one’s own family and wife’s family.
The hadith above tells us that Ali bin Abi Talib was a person who often out his Madhi . He doesn’t know about Islamic law about that. He was also very embarrassed to ask that directly to the Prophet Muhammad. That’s why he asked Miqdad to ask the Prophet Muhammad.
Historical data that I found said, that Miqdad asked the Prophet Muhammad in front of the crowd. without mentioning that Ali bin Abi Talib needed the answer. He then explained about Islamic law related to Madhi. Ali bin Abi Talib who at that time was also in the crowd immediately understood his explanation.
Among the things we need to understand about the hadith above are as follows;
First; We may order someone to be our representative to ask for legal guidance.
Second; We must interact well with the family.
Third; We must maintain good manners and good habits when we are embarrassed to know something.
Fourth; Madhi can break ablution (wudu) but it cannot require that someone take a bath.
Fifth; Madhi is an unclean liquid. If it comes out of a male penis or female vagina, then the man or woman must wash his penis or her vagina.
Readers all! That is a brief explanation of Madhi in Islam. Do you already understand? The issue is simple and the explanation that I have conveyed is also obvious. So, I hope you already understand.
I think that is enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
See you again!
