Q: Some nights I become impure by wet dream and at time of fajr water is so cold, if I take a bath I would fall in cold and fever. Although time is so limited that if I boil water I must miss the salaah. In this circumstance can I just make wudu instead of ghusl and perform fajr?
A: No. If you cannot manage to bath with the cold water, then you should heat the water, make ghusal and thereafter perform your Salaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
