Obligation of ghusl after conversion

I am contacting you about a person who converts to Islam but who has had sexual intercourse before, is this person obliged to do ghusl?

It seems that there is a difference of opinion on this subject within the Hanafite school, some say that we are obliged, others not. If there is a difference, are we allowed to choose the least restrictive opinion and consider that ghusl is not mandatory?

Thank you in advance for your response

Wassalam alaykum

Orgasms due to a medical condition

I think I may have persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD). Generally, the arousal symptoms are worse after showering (including after ghusl) and I have to sit still for hours before the arousal symptoms leave. The arousal symptoms also appear after going to the toilet to a lesser extent. I think they are caused by cleaning my intimate area (i.e. with water and my fingers) although I do not intend this (i.e. I do not think any sexual thoughts etc). Previously, a warm flush would spread through my body that would make me feel light-headed and the arousal symptoms would disappear. This was not accompanied by vaginal contractions. However, more recently, my symptoms have gotten worse. I went to the toilet, got into bed, and after around five minutes, had several orgasms (without vaginal contractions) that I did not intend (i.e. I did not think any sexual thoughts etc). I took a shower (and did ghusl) the next morning and I had another orgasm around ten minutes after (without vaginal contractions).

1) Are the flushes an orgasm in Islam and is ghusl required?

2) Do orgasms without vaginal contractions require ghusl?

3) Do orgasms that you did not intend require ghusl (i.e. there are no sexual thoughts etc)?

4) If one experiences orgasms due to a medical condition (like PGAD), is ghusl required every time an orgasm occurs?

How to clean najaasat off clothing

Asalamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh.

How do you wash the najaasat off clothing.

If there is najaasat and you wash that part with water.
When the water spreads, does that mean the najaasat has also spread.

For example sometimes the nakaasat could be a small droplet of urine or maybe a few droplets.
However, once water is used to wash it, would the najaasat spread with the water?

How would you wash the najaast in a manner than would make it allowed to perform salaah in it without salaah being makruh or nullified?

Ocd or wisper about tahara

I’m suffering with constant intrusive thought about madhi and fear all the time that my salat doesn’t count. Sometimes i look at something normal and have bad sexual thoughts about it and feel like madhi have been discharged and i look and there’s nothing and sometimes there’s something. I feel like sheitan is making me having those thoughts because i dont look at anything haram.Its becoming a burden, I’m not someone that suffer with ocd, i only take 10min for ghusl for example and i dont overthink, but this matter is really worrying me i dont know what to do. I have heard a sheikh say for those that suffer with ocd about this matter that we should only check when we are certain that madhi have been emitted or when we answer the call of nature. My question is, As a woman what is haram for me to look at and how to overcome those wisper from sheitan?

Floor purity

a relative has laminate style flooring in their kitchen. They needed to mop it as there was lots of dust due to renovation in the kitchen.
They used a mop to do this but the mop used was an old one that is currently used in the toilet/bathroom. The relative did wash the old mop in the sink with cleaning liquid then used the mop to mop the kitchen floor.
My question is has this made the kitchen floor impure due to the fact that the mop was previously used in the bathroom which can be impure due to traces of urine/najasah. Although it was washed in the sink, it may not have been washed enough to remove the impurity.

(I’m concerned due to the fact that wudhu is done in the kitchen sink and wet feet then put on the floor). Jazak’allah

Purification madhiy

assalamu alaykum, I deal with excessive madhiy, and I wanted to know if a drop of madhiy, like less than the size of a dirham is pardonable? I'm constantly purifying my clothes such as splashing water over my undergarments according to the sunnah and washing my private area, and I even put tissue in my undergarments. This has been bothering me because my clothes is constantly wet and little madhiy may still release. So is it pardoned for me to just ignore it and not wash my clothes or private if the madhiy is very small like less than the size of a dirham, and would I still have to redo my wudo if it's very small?

Doubta about gas and its smell

Assalam o Alaikum.
often it happens that i feel that gas might have been released during Salah. I know that in such a case of doubt , Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam ) ordered to not leave the Salah unless one hears a sound or finds a smell. I am probably an OCD type person and sometimes i feel that i do find a smell but its very vague and maybe from my imagination. It does not exactly seem like the smell of gas/fart. In such case, should i continue my Salah?

Some semen(maniy) getting onto clothes

Some semen(maniy) got onto my trousers, and I was not sure whether the amount of maniy was more than a dirham or not ,and the trousers were latee washed with other pure clothes.
1- did the other clothes become impure?
2- if the other clothes became impure, is it allowed to pray in those clothes?
3-Will praying in those clothes count as apostasy?

Impurity of dog saliva

If a dog licks you on clothes or body, what is the correct way to clean it? There is a famous Hadith which mentions that if a dog licks a utensil, the latter should be cleaned 7 times with water and once with soil. Does this apply to just utensils or clothes/body as well?

Feeling of breaking wind during Salah

I learnt about the following Hadith:
It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “There is no prayer when food is ready or when one is trying to stop oneself doing either of the two things that break wudoo’ (i.e., urination and defecation).”
My question is if I feel the need to break wind after having started my Salah, should I break my Salah or should I try to stop the wind from breaking (the feeling goes away if I try to stop the wind in a few seconds) and continue with my Salah?
