Retrograde ejaculation

Q: Because of medication, I experience retrograde ejaculation. When I reach an orgasm during sleep (due to a dream), nothing comes out, since the sperm is redirected to the urinary bladder and comes out later, with the urine. Does such a “wet dream” necessitate ghusl even though it isn’t wet in my case?


A: If nothing had come out, ghusal will not be compulsory.

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