Wet dream

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Before I was pregnant when I used to sleep and wake up for fajr maybe only once a month, I used to feel wetness in my private area so I used to make ghusal. Now this pass week I feel wetness everyday. I know exactly how mani feels, when a women experiences mani its a lot of discharge that’s slightly thick. I have had wet dreams before and know how mani is after the wet dream. This week I have been feeling wetness everyday. I know it is not mani because I know how mani is. I really really think its wadi (normal discharge ) but I suffer from Lot of waswasaa and I don’t remember having a dream but I doubt in the morning after I prayed fajr if I had a dream that night or not and than I feel guilty the whole time that I prayed fajr while I needed to do ghusal. So my question is, if one doubts if they had a dream or not and than doubts if its mazi or wadi is ghusal fard? I don’t remember having a dream but I think waswasaa makes me doubt if I had 1 or not.


A: Don’t pay attention to these doubts. Do that which you are certain off. If you know that it is not mani then ghusal is not waajib.

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