Islamic rulings

Ibn Abidin, a 13th century Hanafi Islamic scholar explains:[1]

When there is discharge of thick, cloudy white fluid (wady) (that exits before or after urinating) or unlustful discharge of thin, sticky, white fluid (madhy) caused by play or kissing, it requires ghusl. And wudu.

Regarding things that necessitates ghusl:

  1. sperm or female ejaculate that leaves its place of origin with desire [f: whether actual or effective], even if it exits the body without desire, even if without sexual intercourse;
  2. the head of the penis entering either private part of a living human being who is fit for sexual intercourse, even without any release of sexual fluids…” [al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (Gifts of Guidance, unpublished translation)][2]

Islamic medicine

In Islamic medicine, Muhammad is said to have understood the contagious nature of sexually transmitted disease in the 7th century, according to hadiths attributed to him .[3]

In The Canon of Medicine (1025), Avicenna discovered the contagious nature of infectious diseases and fully understood the contagious nature of sexually transmitted disease.[4]
