Question: Assalam alaykum

Should I perform a ghusl after having a wet dream and finding pre-seminal fluid in my undergarments?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Yes, you would need to perform a ritual bath (ghusl) if you awoke to find pre-sexual fluid (madhi) in your undergarments. But this is on condition that you remember having a wet dream. Otherwise, you would not need to perform the ritual bath.
