Do I need to take gusl or make certain prayers when premature ejaculation occurs as a result of talking or thinking about my bride? I worry about it all the time.
Assalamu Alakum va Rakhmatullahi va Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
May Allah bless you and your groom. May it promote success in your future marriage.
Any excretion or excretion that comes out of the front genitals due to arousal, carnal or sexual thoughts, nullifies wudū (ablution). If the discharge is ejaculation or sperm release, then the gusl (Islamic bath) becomes mandatory. (See: Mukhtaar al-Kuduri)
Your situation does not require mandatory prayers. We suggest that you do your manufacturing activities so that you have less time so that your mind can evade everything else. Relevant advice should also marry your fiancé as soon as possible.
And Allah knows best.
