Praise be to Allaah.
Emission of maniy whilst doing ghusl must be one of two
It happened with desire or
It happened without desire.
If it happened with desire, then this invalidates the first
ghusl. So if he had washed his head and part of his body, then maniy was
emitted with desire, that invalidates his previous ghusl and he has to
repeat what he had already washed.
It says in al-Mawsoo‘ah al-Fiqhiyyah (5/220): The
fuqaha’ are unanimously agreed that emission of maniy is one of the things
that make ghusl obligatory. In fact, an-Nawawi narrated that there was
consensus on this point.
But if it happens without desire, and it is just the remnants
of the first emission, this invalidates wudoo’, but he does not have to
repeat what he has done of ghusl. See the answer to question no.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
With regard to this questioner who emitted it, if there was no desire that
led to its emission, then it is the remnants of the first episode of
janaabah, and does not necessitate ghusl. All he has to do is wash it off
and wash everything it got onto, and repeat wudoo’ only.
