Ruling 84

The semen of a man – and of every male animal whose meat is unlawful and whose blood gushes out – is impure. The fluid that comes out of a woman following sexual arousal and causes her to be in a state of ritual impurity (janābah) – as per the details that will be mentioned in Ruling 345 – has the ruling of semen. Furthermore, based on obligatory precaution, the semen of an animal whose meat is lawful (ḥalāl) and whose blood gushes out must be avoided [i.e. it is ruled as being impure].
