To Bathe or To Wash After Ejaculation –
Would it be necessary to take a bath after ejaculation or just wash the sperm from body parts would be enough?
Assalamu Alakum va Rakhmatullahi va Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
On the basis of consensus, it is necessary that if someone ejaculates, they must perform a gusl (ritual bath), whether as a result of sexual intercourse or not. If only pre-seminal fluid is emitted, it is enough to wash out a part of the body, as well as wash the fluid from any place it touches.
And Allah knows best.
