Is Nocturnal Emission or Wet Dreams Sin in the Bible/ Christianity and Islam?

Wet dreams are when you eja-ulate or release s-men from your pe-is while sleeping. This can happen at any age, and they are normal in adolescent boys, but they also occur in older men and women.

While wet dreams aren’t usually discussed openly in schools or at home, it’s essential to understand that they aren’t sinful or embarrassing. They are entirely natural — even if you do feel shame about them, you should remember that the consequences of feeling guilty over them can be harmful to your emotional and physical health.

What are nocturnal emissions?

Nocturnal emissions, also called wet dreams or just nocturnal emissions, are involuntary ejac*lations that sometimes occur during sleep. Although they’re not a problem for most men (and women), some people may feel embarrassed. However, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, as everyone experiences them at some point.

They typically aren’t a cause for concern unless you have an underlying medical condition. Certain medications, such as antidepressants and blood pressure drugs, can cause nocturnal emissions to become more frequent than usual. If you suspect medicine is behind your increase in ejac-lations while sleeping, talk with your doctor to help manage your symptoms.

Does the Bible mention it at all?

The Bible doesn’t detail dreaming, but it does touch on some related themes. For example, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 mentions how life is better than a dream: Two are more potent than this one because they get a good profit: if one falls, the other should help them up.

Though – and pity the person who falls and has no one to assist them in getting back up. Furthermore, if two people take a nap together, they will stay warm. So how does one keep warm on their own? When someone is outnumbered, some other two can defend.

A three-stranded cord is still not quickly broken. This passage indicates that there’s strength in numbers—in other words, you shouldn’t feel bad about having wet dreams as long as you’re not doing anything sinful while awake (like lying). On top of that, 1 Corinthians 6:18 says Flee from sexual immorality.

To do so, you should avoid sexual thoughts and fantasies. And since these often occur during sleep (especially when we’re young), your best bet is simply avoiding any sexual thoughts while asleep. As an adult man sleeping next to his wife, your chances of having such a thought are relatively low and unlikely enough to worry about.

What does Islam say about nocturnal emissions (wet dreams)?

According to a hadith, Muhammad is recorded as saying There are three things which, if they are present, render a person impure: Sexual intercourse, extreme sweating and seminal discharge (wet dream). There is nothing in Islamic teachings that condemns nocturnal emissions. One of Abu Hurairah’s narrations states that Muhammad said The sexual organ has a right over you.

You can never say ‘no’ to your sexual organ’s demands. This is how Islamic scholars interpreted it. There is an opinion among some conservative Muslims that prohibits orgasms during sleep, even with one’s wife, because it might be construed as masturbation. A person with involuntary seminal discharge during sleep should perform ablution for each prayer he prays that day.

What does Christianity say about it?

The Bible is silent on what, if anything, happens to a person’s soul while they sleep. Many Christians believe that when you sleep, your body rests, but your soul remains awake. This would suggest that one need not worry about bad things happening to them while they are asleep. However, some also contend that demons can attack a person during their slumber.

If a demon does possess someone’s body while they sleep, many Christians believe that God will protect his children from harm. If a man has an er-ction during his sleep and then ejac-lates (wet dream), he may be filled with guilt over something he did not do consciously.

In Christianity, sex is seen as an act of love between two people who willingly give themselves to each other; thus, there should be no shame associated with having sex unless it is done outside of marriage (which many consider adultery). 

For example, suppose two married people have sex together without birth control or intentionally try to conceive a child. In that case, it is considered morally right within Christianity because they are married and have consented to be sexual with each other.

The bottom line

Nocturnal emissions are a part of life. No one likes them, but they happen to all of us at some point (even if you’re not a horny teenage boy). Throughout most case scenarios, nothing can be performed about them. It’s indeed preferable to acknowledge them as a regular part of just being human. The short answer is that masturbation is okay—so long as you don’t have sex with yourself (your hand counts!).

We’d also like to remind everyone that only God can judge you for masturbating and orgasming, so there’s no need to feel guilty. Ma*turbation is perfectly natural—don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Conclusion

Wet dreams or nocturnal emissions have been one of the most controversial topics in the Christian and Islamic communities. People are afraid of getting them. Some feel guilty when they have them, while others wonder if they have sinned or not. Indeed, wet dreams or nocturnal emissions are not sins in Christianity, Islam, and even Jews.

While it may be a source of embarrassment for you, know that there are very few people who haven’t experienced a wet dream (nocturnal emission) at some point. Some men experience them frequently, others rarely; it doesn’t seem to be related to whether or not they have recently had sex with their partner (or partners). This can help reduce feelings of shame about these occasional events. If you experience a wet dream, don’t see it as sinful; God made your body perfectly, and sometimes it just happens.
