Assalam Va Allaikum

Can husband and wife may continue to carry their love even during the month of Ramazaan? During Ramazaan, are they supposed to keep a little distance?

Can I please have any reference?

1 Answer 1


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 187:

Permitted to you on the night of the fasts is the approach to your wives. They are your garments. And ye are their garments. Allah knoweth what ye used to do secretly among yourselves; but He turned to you and forgave you; so now associate with them and seek what Allah hath ordained for you and eat and drink until the white thread of dawn appear to you distinct from its black thread; then complete your fast till the night appears; but do not associate with your wives while ye are in retreat in the mosques. Those are limits (set by) Allah; approach not nigh thereto. Thus doth Allah make clear His signs to men that they may learn self-restraint.

It is absolutely lawful and permissible in Islam for the husband and the wife to enjoy sex relations with each other during the nights or non-fasting hours of the blessed month of Ramadan.

This is also relevant to your question IMHO.

If, Allah forbid, one has sex with one’s wife during the fasting hours in Ramadan see the following Hadith:

Abu Hurairah reported that a man came to the Messenger of Allah (saws) and said: "I am destroyed, O Messenger of Allah (saws)!" The Prophet (saws) asked: "What has destroyed you?" He said, "I had intercourse with my wife during a day of Ramadan." The Prophet (saws) asked: "Are you able to free a slave?" He said, "No". The Prophet (saws) asked: "Is it possible for you to fast for two consecutive months?" He said, "No." The Prophet (saws) asked: "Is it possible for you to feed sixty poor people?" He said, "No." The Prophet (saws) said: "Then sit." A basket of dates was brought to the Prophet (saws) and he said to the man: ‘Give this in charity.’ The man said: "To someone poorer than us? There is no one in this city who is poorer than us!" The Prophet (saws) laughed until his molar teeth could be seen and said: "Go and feed your family with it!"

    @user1379280 the hadith shows basically that sex during fasting is haram and that a "kaffara" is necessary in case one violates that rule

  • @user1379280 Sex, eating, drinking, smoking are all forbidden during the month of Ramadan. I advise you get a good Islamic book on "fasting" before Ramadan comes.
