Precum and semen

Question ID: 26984

Assalam o Aleikum mufti sahb,

Please advise with regards to differentiation between precum and semen. I have recently married and during normal conversation even on the phone I feel physical excitement and notice small liquid patches around the private parts. Is this precum or if there’s slight excitement of the muscles then its semen? I find it hard to tell the two apart from the stains on my clothes.

Please advise.

Many thanks

That which is before semen, the transparent fluid is not pure. It breaks Wudhu and makes the area landed upon impure. Thus purify by washing.
