A man kissing and touching his wife while fasting.

Posted By

bismillahSheikh Bin Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) was asked;

“If a man kisses his wife during the day of Ramadan or plays around with her, does this nullify his fast or not? “

His reply was;

“A man kissing his wife, or playing around with her or even touching her, as long as it is not the actual sexual act, while he is fasting is completely permissible  There is no problem with these things. We know this because it is known that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to kiss his wives and touch them while he was fasting. Though, if there is some fear that it will lead to  that which Allah has forbidden because the individual often falls victim of their desires, then it is disliked for him to partake in these activities.

If the point of ejaculation is reached then what is upon that individual has to still refrain from eating as well as make up that day. There, in this case, is no Kafarah (legislated expiation) that is upon this individual. This is the opinion of the majority of the Scholars. 

As far as pre-cum, if it comes out, then it does not effect ones fast. This is the most correct opinion between the two statements given by the scholars. This is known because the basic principle is that the fast is in tact, and correct. As well, because it is something that is hard for many people to keep from happening. 

And Allah is the Possessor of the Success.”
