One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

assalam valaikum ,

I want to about ahthelam, can it happen while awaken i.e while working etc..


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Ehtelam can ejaculation happen like wet dream

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Ahtelam in Fiqh and Jurisprudence terminology means the involuntary release of ones sperm during ones sleep. Because ahtelam can only be experienced involuntarily, there is no sin upon the person.


If one releases ones sperm in the state of wakefulness, then it cannot be ehtelam, but rather a voluntary act of the person himself.


Your Question: can it happen while awaken i.e while working etc..

The very nature of the release of ones sperms in the state of wakefulness is such that it cannot happen without shahawaat or sexual desires and thoughts; and thus it cannot be classified in Fiqh or Jurisprudence terms as ehtelam, where the precondition is that the sperm is released involuntarily in a state of sleep.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
