Fantasizing about the opposite gender

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q:  

1. I am confused about the types of zina. I am aware that looking at a male, whether it’s a picture or physically, is considered as zina. Also, fantasizing about a male is zina. But, is fantasizing about an imaginary male also a zina?

2. When people read romance novels, they get aroused, and eventually, discharge. Is wudhu or ghusl necessary?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Avoid this.

2. If it is mani that is discharged then ghusl is necessary.

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