Details of the Question

How long should one wait after sexual intercourse in order to make ghusl?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

A man should sleep or walk for a while or urinate even if it is a few drops so that the leakage of sperm will stop after it flows in a sexual intercourse.

Ghusl is necessary for the sperm that leaves it place fast and comes out with lust. If sperm leaves its place with lust but comes out after lust fades, ghusl is necessary according Abu Hanifa and Imam Muhammad but it is not necessary according to Abu Yusuf. According to this understanding, if the ejaculation of sperm that leaves its place with lust is prevented and if it is let out after lust fades, ghusl is not necessary.

However, if a person makes ghusl after sleeping or walking a bit and if the sperm remaining in the canal comes out after that, according to all scholars, wudu is invalidated but ghusl is definitely not necessary.  

If the sperm of her husband comes out from a woman after she makes ghusl, she does not have to make ghusl again; only her wudu is invalidated.
