2. وَقَدْ‮ ‬يَجِبُ‮ ‬الْغُسْلِ (Ghusl becomes necessary)‮ ‬لِـخُرُوجِهِ (due the emission of sperm) مِنْ‮ ‬غَيْرِ‮ ‬مُقَارَنَةِ‮ ‬اللَّذَّةِ (without the occurrence of pleasure), مِـثْلُ  أَنْ  يُجَامِع ‬(just like intercourse) فَـيَلْتَذَّ (wherein pleasure was derived) وَلَـمْ‮ ‬يُنْزِلْ (without sperm being emitted), ‮ ‬ثُـمَّ‮ ‬يَخْرُجُ‮ ‬مِنْهُ‮ ‬الْـمَنِيُّ (then sperm comes out)‮ ‬قَبْلَ‮ ‬أَنْ‮ ‬يَغْتَسَلَ‮ ‬ (before the person performs ghusl).

[Ghusl also becomes necessary because of] وَمُغِيبُ  حَـشَفَةِ  الْـبَالِـغِ (the disappearance of the mature male’s penis), وَهِيَ  رَأْسُ  الذَّكَـرِ (that is to say, the head of the penis) أَوْ‮ ‬مُـغِيبُ‮ ‬مِثْلِهَا مِنْ مَـقْطُوعِـهَا (or the similar disappearance of the circumcised penis)فِـي‮ ‬فَـرْجِ‮ ‬الأَدَمِِـيِّ (into the opening of the human being)أَوْ‮ ‬غَـيْرِهِ‮ ‬ (or an opening [orifice] of other than a human being),‮ ‬أُنْثَى أَوْ‮ ‬ذَكَرٍ‮ ‬(female or male),حَيِّ‮ ‬أَوْ‮ ‬مَيِّتٍ (living or dead),وَ‮ ‬إِنْ‮ ‬لَمْ‮ ‬يُنْزِلْ (even if sperm is not emitted).
