Difference between mani and mazi

Q: If a man thinks about some sexual thing and then his private part becomes wet with some substance, does ghusal (bath) become farz or not? What is difference between mani and mazi?

A: Mani comes out with force and mazi does not come out with force, rather it comes out slowly and gradually. Though mani and mazi both are napaak, however through mani coming out, ghusal becomes waajib and through mazi coming out, wudhu breaks and ghusal does not become waajib.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
