I heard in a bayan that the married couples should not be fully naked(without any clothes) even during sex.

This answer states that the ayats 23:5-6 reveals that the couples can be naked.
Are those ayats mean like that?

I need to calrify the thing that,

Is it allowed in Islam to be naked during sex?

from Islamic point of view, almost all scholars agree that couple can be fully naked during sex.

Also, you have to understand that if you cannot even get naked during sex, then you do not enjoy it fully. and purpose of sex is to fulfill the sexual desires of each other in every possible way. thats why Allah says in Quran:

"Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear Allah. And know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe." (Al-Quran 2:223)

And the wisdom behind this verse is that the PURPOSE of sex. it is to develop intimacy and Fully release your sexual stress, so that you feel no need for it for some time.

3rd point is that everything is permitted in islam, Unless it is Explicitly prohibited. But as there is Nothing related to prohibition of this act, so its fine to be naked during sex.

Its my personal advice that dont try to put any un-necessary restrictions during sexual acts. the more restrictions you put, more difficult for both of you will be to enjoy the sex, the end result would be that none of you will get proper pleasure.

For detailed scholarly view, please consult:

And Allah knows the best

an additional argument to support that that it is allowed to be naked during sex, from quran 2:187 : ... They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them ... – qdinar Mar 11 '15 at 18:20
Is there any evidence that Rasulullah(Sa) and any of his wife became naked? Rather Ayesha(Ra) said, I never saw Rasullah(Sa)'s private part and Rasullah(Sa) also never saw mine! – manetsus Aug 6 '15 at 22:42
