Is fasting invalidated when a person has a sexual intercourse in his dream or when he has a wet dream?

The Details of the Question

Is fasting invalidated when a person sees a naked person in his dream and has a sexual intercourse with her? Is ghusl necessary when he wakes up?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Having a wet dream does not invalidate fasting. Having a sexual intercourse in one's dream does not invalidate fasting; ghusl is not necessary if sperm do not come out. 

If sperm come out from a man or a woman while they are asleep or awake with lust, ghusl becomes necessary.

Somebody asked the Messenger of Allah (pbuh),

"Is it necessary for a person to make ghusl if he finds wetness on his clothes but does not remember having a wet dream?"  The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Yes, it is." Then, he was asked about the state of a person who sees a wet dream but does not find any wetness on his clothes. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Ghusl is not necessary for him." (Abu Dawud, Taharah 95; Tirmidhi, Taharah 82)
