Pearl of Wisdom
was once asked by a Jew, 'When did our Lord, Mighty and Exalted, come to be?', to which he replied, ?O Jew, It is not that our Lord was not and then came to be, for the question 'When did x come to be?' is posed regarding something that is not there and then comes to be. He exists without coming into being; He is ever existing having nothing before Him. He is before 'before' itself, before any limit. Limits do not apply to Him for He is the ultimate limit of alllimits.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 77, p. 331, no. 18

Subject: wuzu and sexual intercourse
Question: As salam alaikum
In islam it is recommended to do Wuzu first then have a sexual relation with the wife.
My question is that during foreplay women secrete a liquid. Is this liquid nagis or pak.
It is always recommended to conduct Wudhu before any act, especially when conducting in intercourse with ones partner.
In terms of the liquid emitted, there are three types of liquid that comes out from the private parts:
1. Mazi - liquid that comes out gradually upon erection and foreplay. The liquid is impure and nullifies the Wudhu, but Ghusl is not necessary.
2. Mani - sperms which comes out with force. Sperms are impure and Ghusl becomes compulsory.
3. Wadi - liquid which comes out sometimes after urine.
The said liquid is clean. However, when one cannot ascertain whether the fluid emitted from one's body is semen, urine or something else, it will be treated as semen if it is thrown out with lust and if the body is slackened.
Follow Up Question: You have mentioned that 'Mazi' is impure and nullifies the Wudhu. Could you please confirm this issue. Because as far as I have studied, mazi is not impure, according to Ayatollah Sistani.
Please check point # 74
Please advise if ayatollah has changed his rulings.
Follow Up Response Question: certainly like your website hweveor you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless I will surely come back again.
