Assalamu Alaikum mufti

My question is I have a problem with white.. Regular discharge. And I was ok to deal with it as I know the ruling when it comes to worship matters. But recently I read madhi breaks wudu. Actually i am really worried.

I read it is excusable if najasah is up to the size of 1 dirham. Actually can you tell me what size or area it shows.

Secondly is our namaz valid if we pray with madhi in clothes. Because it is difficult to wash always. And I read we do not need to wash but sprinkle a handful of water over the garment. But when we take handfu of water and pour it into our garment it gets wet properly. Actually what is meant by sprinkle handful of water. What amount is it and how. I read madhi is less impure than urine… So what is it excusable amount in our clothes. Please help me out with this problem.


Any discharge exiting from the vagina that is not menstrual blood or post-natal bleeding will nullify wudu. This is the case even if the amount of discharge is very small, or if the discharge is white or colourless. This discharge is not classified as “madhi”; rather, it is a nullifier of wudu based on the general principle that anything exiting the private parts invalidates wudu.

This discharge is also considered to be najasah (legal filth) and must be washed off the afflicted garments before one can pray in them. However, if the spread of this discharge on the garment is less than the size of one dirham, which is roughly the size of the concave in the palm if the hand is outstretched with the palm facing upwards, this amount is excused. This means that the prayer of the woman is valid even if she prays in clothes that have up to this much filth on them, but if the amount of filth is more that the size of a dirham, her prayer will be invalid unless she washes it off first. It does not suffice to only sprinkle water on the area in this case; it must be thoroughly washed.

I hope this explanation clarifies your confusions regarding this issue.
