After sexual intercourse, such stuff over the bed like bedspread, case, pillow etc. get unclean; is it necessary to change them?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

As long as no impurity smudges on such things like the pillow, quilt, and clothing, they do not need to be changed.

Mazi and wadi is unclean according to all sects. (see al-Fiqh ul Islam, 1/151-152) mani (sperm) is unclean according to Hanafi sect but it is clean according to Shafi sect.

The quantity of impurity which prevents one from praying varies according to whether it is dry or wet.

If much impurity called Ghaliz najasah is a dry material, it must be less than three grams. If it is more than that, then it invalidates Salah (prayer).

If it is a wet material, then it must not be spread over an area more than the palm of the hand. If it is more than that, it invalidates Salah. It is mandatory to remove that impurity for praying. If the impurity is less than that quantity, it does not invalidate Salah. However, if you can, you should remove it because it is Sunnah.

Mani can be removed by rubbing, if it is dry. If the cloth with mani is lined, it is sufficient to rub it. However, if it is wet, it should absolutely be washed. However, if the dry mani over the cloth is wetted later after it gets clean by rubbing, according to the Hadith, it gets unclean again and it must be washed or rubbed by drying.
According to Shafi sect, even if the impurity is only a drop, it must be cleaned.

A person who reaches puberty discharges four kinds of fluids:

1- Urine, 2- Mani (sperms), 3- Mazi (fluid during excitement), 4-Wadi (fluid generally after urination)
Among those the only one which necessitates ghusl is mani (sperms). Mani has three qualities:
1- It gushes forth,
2- Satisfaction occurs,
3- When damp, it smells like dough; when dry, it smells like the white of egg.
Wadi is a thick white fluid which is discharged after urination. Mazi is also a white but thin fluid which is discharged when feelings of lust dominate. In short, no ghusl is needed because of the mentioned wadi and mazi.
The wetness that women experience because of lust is called “kazi”. Because of that, only ritual ablution is annulled but it does not annul fast nor does it necessitate ghusl.
States Which Necessitate Ghusl
1. Engaging in sexual intercourse: Even if mani is not discharged, if sexual organs of man and woman are united, ghusl is needed.
Allah's Messenger, peace and blessings upon him, says about that subject: “If the private parts of man and woman touch each other and groove is lost, then ghusl is needed.” (1)
2. To experience the state of ihtilam (major ritual impurity in sleep): Discharge of mani from man or woman with lust while asleep or awake also requires ghusl. Allah's Messenger (PBUH) was asked about a person who finds wetness (on his body, clothes, bed, etc.) upon waking up and he does not remember seeing a dream (that caused the wetness). Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said: “He should make Ghusl.” Allah's Messenger (PBUH) was also asked about a person who remembers seeing a dream and does not see wetness, he replied: “There is no Ghusl upon the Person.” (2)
