Does a wet dream break the fasting of a person?

Question:

What is the ruling for (being) in a state of Janaabah during the day time in Ramadaan; Does the one whom Janaabah comes upon breaks his fasting, and what is obligatory upon him to do?

 

Answer:

Your question manifests the affair of the one who had a (wet) dream; meaning: You slept and had a dream and Janaabah came upon you, and not by way of sexual intercourse; rather you had a dream. So, have you broken your fasting?  Your fasting is correct, however what is incumbent upon you is to take a bath of (Janaabah); otherwise (wet) dream during sleep does not ruin the fast. Your fasting is correct and nothing is incumbent upon you Inshaa-Allaah; rather what is incumbent upon you is to perform the bath of Janaabah only.  This (dream) did not take place from sexual intercourse, and what is well known (to ruin the fast) is sexual intercourse whilst being awake. This is what is disallowed and it is forbidden, and there is expiation for it.  However, the (scholarly) statement about the sleeping person, meaning: if the person has a (wet) dream whilst sleeping, then his fasting is correct and what is incumbent upon him is to take a bath.
