I have a question. When we ejaculate be it through intercourse, masturbation or wet dreams, we must take ghusal right?

Can we fast without taking ghusal?

Assalamua’alaikum warahmathullahi wabarakathu.


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

It is Makrooh (disliked) to fast whilst impurity. Also, the Fardh Ghusl has to be made to ensure that Salah (prayers) is performed in its correct time. One will be sinful if the Ghusl is delayed to the extent that Salah becomes Qadhaa.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
