Question : #734 Category: Taharat / Najasat
Subject: Ghuslu Janabah
Question: Salam alaikum,

I have 9 Questions

1. It is said that an ablution is to be made when performing Ghuslu. Also it is said that uttering words in the bathroom/toilet not permissible. According to sunnah,

saying basmallah before ablution and saying tashahud supplications after it are highly part of wudui. If one is doing the taking the bath in bathroom, can he say the

basmallah and supplications little bit out loud or he or she should be said it by heart without ultering sound in order to conform with both the rulings stated above?

2. It is said that if one is performing ablution during Ghuslu and his bear hand mistakely touch the bare skin of his private part, then the ablution he made is

nullified and he should start everything (i.e. the Ghuslu) from the begining again. How true is this and which part of the sunnah says this?

3. Is there a niyyat to be said by heart for the performance of Ghuslu and wudui ?

4. Is it good for a Muslim faithful to own a social website (but for academic purpose) in which members can upload profile pictures. From this, we know, female members

who are not Muslims will upload pictures with hair open and other non-Islamic appearance. Will this cause any sin on the owner of the website? And if the website is

made to be single-sex (only for male or only for female), there are some liars on the internet that pretend to be famale though male or pretend to be male though

female in order to gain entrance into the circle and then cause mayhem. So the academic program works best with both sex present. Please advise.

5. When one is severely ill and cannot perform water wudui or tayammum, can he or she pray without ablution? Does is it apply also to one who is junub with same


6. If one takes a flight of 10 hours, must he pray in the airplane and how if he must pray? Is ablution a must and how will he make it if it is?

7. Must a student leave a lecture to pray when of cause he will miss lecture or it if he does?

8. Is it allowed to perform the tilawatul-Qur'an and ask Allah (SWT) to send the blessings which one will get from it as blessings to the deceased parent? And is it

allow to recite Qu'ran chapters as blessing for the deceased?

9. I have question about a matter but first I will need to narrate a short story so that you can best understand the question. I have been given the authority to

narrate it. The brother prefers privacy of name and identity.

A brother while so young used to have lots of imagination in most things. When he was so young (in primitive classes) he was socially friendly (not lonely) but anytime

he lies down (not sleeping) or just alone, he imagines things. He can imagine lots of things, like how to build a car, construct things and many more. He is creative.

Unfortunately, this imagination also extended to sexual thoughts. When he was growing up as a child, among so many areas his thoughts covers, he is most disturbed by

the sexual to the extent that he starts to masturbate. To cut the story short. When he grew much older he started acquiring Islamic knowledge and realized that

masturbation is haram and eventually he repented and stopped it, alhamdulillah. Now, it seems the masturbation had caused him weakness in one of the parasympathetic

muscles which controls the hold of ejaculation (he got this knowledge from a later research). The problem now is that, he ejaculates quickly (premature ejaculation).

Well this appears to be an health problem and this is not exactly the issue. The issue now is that the imagination grown to be constructive and positive but still with

little negativity. He does not masturbate and he controls this thinking almost immediately. But even for a fraction of seconds that the devilish whispering came or he

accidentally saw an emotional picture and averted it, a colorless liquid like urine may squirts out even if it does'nt make up a drop or does. The main one is whenever

he goes to excrete, a whitish liquid squirts out of the urine exit. Not as the real yellowish-white of sperm but white also which maybe coming from the surface of the

sperm storage or so. Well, from research, we learnt that there maybe a displace of the sperm to another area of the body (maybe) due to overflow or weakness of the

muscle. This is why the squirting is possible after he finishes urinating (colorless liquid) or the whitish liquied squirts out whenever he excerted little pressure on

muscle to force out excreta in toilet (with no lust).There are medicines which are cure to this but for now not attainable due to some factors. But he is trying to get


By having this whole background in mind. This is now the question.

Must he perform ghuslu janaba each time he goes for excretion and experienced such till the time he finally gets the cure (by Allah's leave)?

The reason for this question is that. He read it in a fiqh book that an ejaculation caused by lust necessitate a compulsory ghuslu janabah. If within a fraction of

seconds, the devilish whilspering or glimpse of emotional image which resulted to lust caused a displacement of the sperm (because of weak muscle) which then emanates

at later times (sometimes daily or days, weeks) during forcing excreta in toilet not result to same ruling? I have to add to this story that this brother lowers his

gaze and does not fornicate. He try as much as possible to leave a righteous life. However, in the kind of society we are, hardly would you not see such a dirty

picture in TV or on street. The work is on the believer to quickly avert. Within such a snapping small fractions of seconds before the quick avert, it may happen to

him. sorry for the long story but he prefers the judge to fully understand why there can be an ejaculation during excreting.

jazakumullah khair
