In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Brother in Islaam,

It is permissible to engage in intimacy after having a wet dream. However, it is advisable to remove the impurities around the private parts before engaging in intimacy[1]. After engaging in intimacy, only one ghusl will be necessary.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.

ولا بأس للجنب أن ينام ويعاود أهله لما روي عن عمر رضي الله عنه أنه قال : يا رسول الله { أينام أحدنا ، وهو جنب قال : نعم ، ويتوضأ وضوءه للصلاة } ، وله أن ينام قبل أن يتوضأ وضوءه للصلاة لما روي عن عائشة رضي الله عنها أنها قالت { كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ينام ، وهو جنب من غير أن يمس ماء } ، ولأن الوضوء ليس بقربة بنفسه ، وإنما هو لأداء الصلاة ، وليس في النوم ذلك ، وإن أراد أن يأكل ، أو يشرب فينبغي أن يتمضمض ، ويغسل
