Wet dream

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to ask you if I don’t feel or remember any wet dream, not any orgasm but feel wetness upon waking up so ghusl is waajib upon me in these situations.

1) If wetness is sweating

2) If wetness is due to istinja during night

3) If wetness is regular vaginal discharge

4) If wetness is mazi

5) If wetness is mani


A: If one is sure that it is mani or one doubts whether it is mazi or mani, then ghusal is waajib.

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