Madhi in Islamic Law

Learning Shariah: Madhi in Islamic Law ~ Hi all readers! In this article I will explain about Islamic law about a liquid that usually comes out of the penis or vagina. The liquid is not sperm, menstruation, or istihadhah. The liquid is Madhi. Madhi is a liquid that comes out of the penis or vagina because someone imagines sex, wants to have sex, or when husband and wife are making out (foreplay). This liquid is clear and sticky. This discharge does not make a person weak.

As always, before I explain more about Madhi in islamic law, I will present the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad as follows;

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بْنِ أَبِيْ طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : كُنْتُ رَجُلًا مَذَّاءً فَأَمَرْتُ الْمِقْدَادَ أَنْ يَسْأَلَ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَسَأَلَهُ . فَقَالَ : فِيْهِ الْوُضُوْءُ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Ali ibn Abi Talib radliyallahu anhu, he said, “I am a person who often goes out the Madhi. I then ordered Miqdad to ask the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu 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 left 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;

One; We may order someone to be our representative to ask for legal guidance.

Two; We must interact well with the family.

Three; We must maintain good manners and good habits when we are embarrassed to know something.

Four; Madhi’s exit can damage ablution (wudu) but it cannot require that someone take a bath.

Five; Madii 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.

That is a brief explanation of Madhi in islamic law. Do you understand? The problem is simple and the explanation that I have conveyed is also clear. So, I hope you understand.

I think that is enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!

See you again in the next article!
