Sometimes when I wake up for fasting, I notice I had ejaculated (not the result of masturbation, but a wet dream). Despite that fact, I eat and drink completely, then I do ghusl in order to pray al-fajr. Given I ate while not pure, will this fast be accepted?

    Unless you follow the Ibadi sect islam.stackexchange.com/questions/17755/…, (only then) no!

  • @Medi1Saif I do not understand what you meant. From what I understand from the article you pointed me to, it seems my fast is valid but I do not understand you answer "no".

  • @youssouf the "no" is in case you followed the Ibadi sect, else of course your fast is valid.

Inshaallah your fast will still be valid. The hadath (impurities) including farts, urinating, janabah, etc. are not the requirement for doing starting the fast. Those are the requirement for other obligation such as the five prayer.

See: https://islamqa.info/en/answers/14225/delaying-ghusl-from-janaabah-in-ramadaan-until-the-sun-has-risen-does-not-invalidate-the-fast

Allahualam - only Allah knows best

  • There are two kinds for hadath one requiring ghusl and one only wudu'.

  • @Medi1Saif correct, but hadath is not the requirement to begin fasting. But indeed, if you have janabah later during fasting, then your fast is invalidated Nov 14, 2019 at 9:28
