Question 11) - What brings about al-Hadath al-Akbar? What makes Ghusl Wajib?

A: Al-Hadath al-Akbar is brought about by one of the following:

1. Nocturnal emission of a male or female when sperm is ejaculated.

2. When a man enters his penis in the vagina of a woman or her anus or the anus of another man, whether sperm is

ejaculated or not. The Ghusl in these cases is Fare upon both the perpetrator and the one who is penetrated.

‘iltiqa’al khatanayn’

3. Ejaculation with a gush and lust, of sperm, whether from male or female. If any of the three occur to

someone, that person is called ‘jub’ whether male or female.

4. At the end of the menstrual period.

5. At the end of the childbirth period.

Through these factors Ghusl becomes Fard, i.e. washing of the whole body, not even leaving the space of a hair

except that it has been washed with water.
