Obligation If Sperm Is Out According to Islam

Islamic Rule Reference: 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 Qur’an.

As always, before I explain this theme further, I will present the hadith which are specifically related to this discussion. Pay attention!

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 is No Sperm During Sex; Is There an Obligation to Take a Bath?

Important Explanation About Sperm According to Islam

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 hadats that arise due to sperm.

The bathing intention is as follow;

نَوَيْتُ الْغُسْلَ لِرَفْعِ الْحَدَثِ الْأَكْبَرِ فَرْضأً لِلَّهِ تَعَالَى

I intend to take a bath to eliminate the great hadats as an obligation because of Allah Taala.

While the procedure for bathing is like an ordinary bath. But the water used for bathing must touch all the skin of the body. That is, all skin must be washed, starting from the head to toe. If there is one point of skin that is not washed away, the bath is invalid. This is very important for us to pay attention to.

That is a brief explanation of the topic of this article. Do you understand? The problem is simple and the explanation that I have conveyed is very clear. So, I hope you understand!

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