Imam Malik, Imam Shafi, MajorityPurification is obligatory after contact of genitals, irrespective of occurrence of ejaculation.Based on the narration from Abu Huraira
Majority say that this tradition abrogates that of Uthman(RA) based on the tradition of Ubay ibn Kaab
Furthermore, some scholars use analogy to prefer Abu Huraira (RA) tradition saying that as consensus has occurred on the point that the contact of genitals invokes the hadd penalty, it must also be the cause giving rise to bathing.
ZahiritesPurification is obligatory only in the case of coitionBased on the narration from Uthman(RA)
Since this tradition conflicts with the narration from Abu Huraira and conflict can't be resolved through preference or reconciliation, should recourse to what is agreed upon, which is obligation of purification upon ejaculation
