Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Respected Sister

There are three types of discharges which would affect the status of Wudhu or Ghusal;

  1. Mani (semen) is thick, white liquid. After the emission of mani, the erection subsides.[1]
  2. Mazi (pre-coital fluid) is thin, clear liquid which releases during arousal without gushing and does not diminish the arousal.
  3. Wadi is thick, white liquid that resembles mani (semen) in thickness but not in murkiness. It has no smell and comes out after urination. Sometimes, it comes out before urination. Usually, not much more than a drop or two of wadi comes out.

In principle if one emits mazi (pre-coital fluid) or wadi then it does not necessitate ghusl, merely necessitates wudhu.

However if one emits mani (semen) then it necessitates ghusl if it takes place with arousal or excitement[2], if mani (semen) is discharged due to heavy lifting or a sickness etc, ghusl will not become compulsory, although one’s wudhu will break.

There are 14 factors upon which the rulings differ with regards to ghusl becoming compulsory or not if you see any wetness or whitish in your underpants upon awakening.

This will depend on a number of scenarios, including whether or not you remember having a dream and whether or not you think you know what the wetness or whitish most probably is.[3]

All the scenarios and their rulings are as follows:

[2] فصل : عشرة أشياء لا يغتسل منها: مذي ) بفتح الميم وسكون الدال المعجمة وكسرها وهو ماء أبيض رقيق يخرج عند شهوة لا بشهوة ولا دفق ولا يعقبه فتور وربما لا يحس بخروجه وهو أغلب في النساء من الرجال ويسمى في جانب النساء قذى بفتح القاف والدال المعجمة ( و ) منها ( ودي ) بإسكان الدال المهملة وتخفيف الياء وهو ماء أبيض كدر ثخين لا رائحة له يعقب البول وقد يسبقه أجمع العلماء على أنه لا يجب الغسل بخروج المذي والودي.

[3]  قال ابن عابدين: اعلم أن هذه المسألة على أربعة عشر وجها ؛ لأنه إما أن يعلم أنه مني أو مذي أو ودي أو شك في الأولين أو في الطرفين أو في الأخيرين أو في الثلاثة ، وعلى كل إما أن يتذكر احتلاما أو لا فيجب الغسل اتفاقا في سبع صور منها وهي ما إذا علم أنه مذي ، أو شك في الأولين أو في الطرفين أو في الأخيرين أو في الثلاثة مع تذكر الاحتلام فيها ، أو علم أنه مني مطلقا ، ولا يجب اتفاقا فيما إذا علم أنه ودي مطلقا ، وفيما إذا علم أنه مذي أو شك في الأخيرين مع عدم تذكر الاحتلام ؛ ويجب عندهما فيما إذا شك في الأولين أو في الطرفين أو في الثلاثة احتياطا ، ولا يجب عند أبي يوسف للشك في وجود الموجب ، واعلم أن صاحب البحر ذكر اثنتي عشرة صورة وزدت الشك في الثلاثة تذكر أولا أخذا من عبارته اهـ ح
