Q 2: While I was at Mina one night while performing Hajj, I had a wet dream, but I could not make Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity). Is there anything required of me?

A: if while performing Hajj or `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) a person has a wet dream, their Hajj or `Umrah will not be invalidated on account of this. They do, however, have to make Ghusl after they wake up from sleep and see stains of spermatic fluid on their garments. They are not required to offer Fidyah (ransom) since they can not control the spermatic fluid released while having wet dreams.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
