Is it permissible to change one’s ihraam clothes?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
When performing Hajj and staying overnight in Mina I had a "wet dream" (out of my control). When I woke up I immediately made ghusl and washed and changed my ihram. Did I do the correct thing and is my Hajj still valid?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is permissible for the pilgrim in ihraam to change his ihraam clothes. We have previously quoted the fatwa of the Standing Committee in the answer to question no. 26722. Here we will add the fatwa of Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him). 

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen said: 

It is permissible for the muhrim (pilgrim in ihraam) who is doing Hajj or ‘Umrah, male or female, to change the clothes in which he or she entered ihraam and to put on different clothes, if the other clothes are things which it is permissible for the pilgrim in ihraam to wear. 

Al-Manhaj li Mureed al-‘Umrah wa’l-Hajj (no. 5). 

And Allaah knows best.

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