Wet dream

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: When at night we see a wet dream and we ejaculate, is it farz to do gusl afterwards? In winters it is difficult to take bath at fajr and then go to masjid. If after ejaculation we don’t do gusl can we offer salaah with just wudhu?



1) Yes. It is farz for one to make ghusal.

2) No.

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