Questions about intimate relations during Ramadan

Quetion: Is it allowed to have sexual relations with wife after sunset and before sunrise in Ramadan?


Narrated in Ibn Kathir's tafseer, that Ibn Jarir said: "When people were fasting in the month of Ramadan, and if they went to bed after sunset, become haraam to eat, to drink and to have sexual relations before the next iftar."

Once Umar ibn al-Khattab (radiyallahu anhu) spoke to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and came home late at night  and found his wife sleeping and coveted her. She said to him: "I was sleeping". Umar (radiyallahu anhu) said: " You were not sleeping" and went to her. Kaab Ibn Malik did the same. The next day, Umar went to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and told him about it. And Allah has sent down this verse:

أحل لكم ليلة الصيام الرفث الي نسائكم. هن لباس لكم و أنتم لباس لهن.علم الله أنكم كنتم تختانون أنفسكم فتاب عليكم  وعفا عنكم. فالان باشروهن و ابتغوا ما كتب الله لكم.(سورة البقرة , اية:187).

It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. (Surah Baqarah, verse 187) (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)

This verse Allah has permitted intercourse, eating and drinking all night long. And it is a manifestation of His grace to people.

What is the hukm of ejaculation touch or embrace while fasting?


What is the Hukm (legal decision) ejaculations touch or hug the wife while fasting?


Ejaculation as a result of kissing, touching or hugging the wife, spoil fasting and need to fill that day (Casa). (Marginani, Al-Hidaayah, I, 123)
