What is mani & mazi?


What is mani & mazi?
Which out of the two, do you have to have shower (ghusal bath)if it is released. Which of the two do you not have to have a shower (ghusal bath)if it is released? Also what must you do if Mazi is released? eg can you pray after doing wudhu, do you have to clean private parts, clothes etc? I read that if the release of mazi or nijasat is less than a dhiram (10 pence coin) then you can pray after doing wudhu & your prayer will count but it will be against the Sunnat if you do not clean that part of clothes/private parts.
Also what must you do if Mani is released?


Thank for posting a very important question.
The scholars have identified the differences between Manni (semen) and Mazzi. Manni is only released via the means of the contraction of the male private part, whereas Mazzi is released without this means. After the release of Manni, the male private part loses its erection; with Mazzi, the erection can continue. Pregnancy occurs through the release of Manni, not Mazzi. In appearance, Manni is more pulp-like, whereas Mazzi is more like normal fluid.
When Manni is released, either through sexual intercourse or a wet dream, then the Ghusl becomes necessary as the person is now considered in the state of impurity. He cannot read Salah or the Quran until he has bathed in the Islamic manner.
When Mazzi is released, it has the same ruling as urine. In other words, Ghusl does not become necessary, but Wudhu does. Islam does allow less than a dirham sized coin of Mazzi on the clothes, but ideally it should be washed immediately.
