Does a wet dream break one’s fast?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Does a wet dream break my fast? During Ramadhan I was sleeping and dreamt about sex and I think I released white semen. Is my fast valid? How can I make up all the missed fasts?


A: The fast is valid. Having a wet dream during the fast does not cause the fast to break.

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