Is prostatic fluid najis?


As-salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

thanks for your question

If by prostatic fluid you mean sermen then it is Najis, but if you mean madhi or wadhi then it is not najis.

According to Ayatullah al-Udhma Sayyid Ali Sistany:

The fluid that sometimes comes out of the penis as a result of sexual arousal, called ‘madhī’, is pure. And the fluid that sometimes comes out after the ejaculation of semen, called ‘wadhī’, is also pure. As for fluid that sometimes comes out after urinating and which is called ‘wadī’, if it has not come into contact with urine, it is pure. Furthermore, in the event that a person performs istibrāʾ after urinating and then fluid comes out and he doubts whether it is urine or one of these three fluids, it is pure. Ruling 70.

Question: Whenever I am thinking about a beautiful woman, there comes out a liquid without any lust or ejaculation? Is it semen? How can I understand that it is semen or a clean discharge?

Answer: As you have no certainty that it is semen, without the presence of the conditions required, the said liquid is pure (Tahir).
