Q&A: Wet Dreams in Ramaḍān

Q&A-GSalam.Net

Question

Assalamu alaikum. Are wet dreams from the devil or it’s natural to have them? And when they occur in Ramadan, what should one do?

Answer

Wet dreams are not (necessarily) from the devil. They are rather a relief from Allah for bachelors (singles, males or females), to protect them from the potential temptation towards fornication and possible masturbation.

If you experience wet dream during the daytime of Ramaḍān (while fasting), all you have to do, is to take bath; the holy bath (Ghusl), in order to be able to pray (ṣalāh). Your fast remains valid, insha Allah.
