Assalamualaykum Waramatullahi Wabarakathu. I have a few questions regarding wet dreams : 1) When does Ghusl become fardh ? When i have wet dream only ? 1a) When i have a wet dream do i have to change all my clothes or only the clothes affected ? Like do i also have to wash my Kurta ? 2) Sometimes i have a wet dream but no discharge. Is Ghusl fardh or not ? 3) Is ghusl fardh when its Mani or Madhi ? 4) A few sometimes i noticed that my undergarment has a few drops and not sure what it is. So ghusl is fardh or not ? 4a) Do i have to wash that part or change my clothes ? 5) Is there any dua i cant recite to avoid wet dreams ? 6) I usually wash my undergarments in a washing machine. So is it safe and permissible ? 6a) Do my impure undergarments dirty the other undergarments ? I wash all the undergarments using the washing machine one time. 6b) Sometimes after the washing machine is done washing i still notice stains. Do i have to wash again or not ? JazakAllah khairan for that clarification

الجواب حامداومصليا

Ihtilam means a wet dream I.e. seeing a sexual dream which results in ejaculatory emission for men and wetness in the vagina for women. This will necessitate Ghusl for both men and women.

Also If you ejaculate whilst awake with desire, ghusl will be necessary.

If there is no discharge after a wet dream then Ghusl will not be necessary.

If there is discharge of Madhi only wudhu is necessary.

If you find wetness and doubting that it is Mani (semen) or Madhi and don't remember having a dream then you should make Ghusl. As in the matters of worship one should exercise precaution.

Wherever the filth have soiled the garment those places you need to wash three times and squeeze after every wash. There is no need to wash the whole garment .

You can put your underwear with other clothes in the washing machine too, as washing machine involves several washes and rinses, impure clothes can therefore be washed via the washing machine. The clothes will become clean as long as no visible impurity is still present after the wash.

Read your Azkars and Duas before you retire to bed this should help to prevent wet dreams, InshaAllah.

ومنها الاحتلام الخ لفظه غلب علي ما يراه النائم من الجماع المقترن بالإنزال غالبا
والمرأة فيه كالرجل في ظاهر الرواية

لا عند مذي وودي بل الوضوء منه........اه أي بل يجب الوضوء منه أي من الودي ومن البول جميعا
(ردالمحتار ،كتاب الطهارة،١/١٦٧،سعيد)

يجب الغسل عندهما لاعند أبي يوسف فيما اذاشك انه مني أومذي أو ودي ولم يتذكر احتلاما فيهما
ولهما ما روي أنه صلي الله عليه وسلم سئل عن الرجل يجدالبلل ولم يذكر احتلاما قال "يغتسل" ولأن النوم راحة تهيج الشهوة وقديرق المني لعارض والاحتياط لازم في باب العبادات
(حاشية الطحطاوي علي مراقي الفلاح,ص.99,قديمي)

(قوله وبتثليث الجفاف فيما لاينعصر أي مالاينعصر فطهارته غسله ثلاثا وتجفيفه في كل مرة لأن للتجفيف اثرا في استخراج النجاسة وهو أن يتركه حتي ينقطع التقاطر ولايشترط فيه اليبس
(البحر الرائق,1\238)

And Allah knows best .
