Ghusl Janabat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


As you can see i am a new member and although i have used the search engine in order to get an answer to my question, i still feel i'm left a lil confused so any advice would be helpful.

I would like to know wether ghusl janabat becomes obligotary if a woman, during or after sexual intercourse does not orgasm. I have asked many fellow women who like myslef are married, but have received some differnt views.

I have ofcourse read that Ayatollah Sistani says that the ghusl is wajib upon a woman after sexual intercourse but some say this only applies if she orgasms. So right now im not quite sure what to do, and i would like people to please help me out.

I hope i have posted this in the correct forum so i apologise in advance if not.

Salam alaykum,

Thanks for asking this Shia thats it - I have wondered about the specifics of this as well. According to Sistani (via the link posted by Simba), one must perform ghusl on two conditions: 1. intercourse and/or 2. discharge of semen. I'm wondering what exactly #2 means for women, as discharge is different from orgasm, and women don't have semen as men do. If a woman has an orgasm without intercourse, does she have to perform ghusl?

According to Seestani, orgasm or no orgasm, as soon as intercourse takes place both parties are in the stage of Janabat.

355. If a person has sexual intercourse with a woman and the male organ enters either of the private parts of the woman up to the point of circumcision or more, both of them enter Janabat, regardless of whether they are adults or minors and whether ejaculation takes place or not

    • Salam. I had noticed that Holy Qur'an website is down. I regret that. Perhaps they are doing some kind of maintenance and will be back up and running again soon. May Allah accept all your amal in your mourning for Imam Hussein AS and his martyred family and companions AS.
    • Yes, Iran and Turkey have both near the kurdish-iraqi border exercised military drills. Haashd al Shaabi said they will not allow Kirkuk to secede to Kurdistan, so I imagine war... http://news.sky.com/story/kurdish-independence-referendum-in-iraq-fuels-violence-fears-11051207
    • Does anyone know what happened to corpus.quran.com? I heavily relied on it to help me get through my Quran studies and now I'm lost.  May Allah reward you all for your grief for Imam al-Husayn, peace be upon him. 
    • Salaam Aleikum, I have came to a point where when I go to sleep and see an irregular dream, it reflects my old self that was attached to the wordily life. The moment when I wake up, suddenly such a self is gone and my self is directed toward Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى.  This shows that it is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى that directs the nafs by His mercy.
    • Salam, Sister. Why do you want to oppose your father and mother? When a man and woman get married, they are not just marrying themselves, their family members become related by marriage. The husband's parents should become the friends of the wife's parents. You are not just pushing your parents to let you marry a Sunni, you are pushing them to become friends with people they don't want to be friends with. Do not do istikhara yourself. It won't help you. If you think the Istikhara is good, will you marry the Sunni without your father's permission? People will backbite you and say you left Islam, then they will backbite your parents and say they were bad people, look what happened to their daughter. You are not thinking properly.
