Had a wet dream whilst fasting.

belalongQuestion: In one of the days in Ramadhaan, whilst fasting I went to sleep and had a wet dream. What is the ruling regarding this, and do I have to make an expiation?

Response: One who has a wet dream whilst fasting or in a state of ihraam for Hajj or 'Umrah has no sin upon him nor any expiation and this act will have no (negative) baring on his fast, Hajj or 'Umrah. He must perform the ghusl accorded to the major impurity if he excreted any sperm as a result.

And with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
