Obligation If Sperm Is Out According to Islam ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain one obligation that must be done by a Muslim. Yups! As you have seen in the title of this article, the obligation that I mean is bathing. But you need to know that bathing is an obligation to take a bath due to the release of sperm. It is true, in some of the previous articles I have explained, that the sperm is not unclean. That is holy. But, in Islamic teachings, if someone’s sperm has come out, then he must take a shower. If he does not do that, then he may not pray and read the Quran.
As always, before I explain obligation if sperm is out according to Islam further, I will present the hadith which are specifically related to this discussion. Pay attention!
Hadith About Obligation If Sperm Is Out According to Islam
The hadith about obligation if sperm is out according to Islam that I mean is as follows:
عَنْ أَبِيْ سَعِيْدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الْمَاءُ بِالْمَاءِ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ
From Abu Sa’id al-Khudri radliyallaahu ‘anhu, he said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Water from water.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.
There are several things related to the hadith above that we need to know, that a Muslim is obliged to take a bath if his sperm has come out. Of course, there are many things that can cause someone’s sperm to come out. The most common are sex and dreams of having sex. What if it’s caused by masturbation? It’s the same. The important point in this discussion is coming of sperm!
All readers! The historical study of the hadith above that I got said, that at that time some of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad thought that the obligatory bathing was only caused by sex. They do not know that it is also required because of dreams of having sex. That’s why he told them about this one obligation.
The meaning of “Water from water” in the hadith above, that we must use water that can purify to eliminate hadas that arise due to sperm.
