Nature of Wet Dreams

Q: I wanted to find out if it is normal to have wet dreams at night. One makes every effort to avoid lustful glances.

A:
A wet dream is a natural way of the body expelling excessive semen. It is normal and no sin is incurred. Yes, protect the gaze as much as possible and keep the heart and thoughts clean. If the wet dreams are occurring often, recite Surah Taariq (in Juz 30) before sleeping.
