Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum 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:

Dear brother ! I`m recently married and please reply me early. My Question is that i heard from people that , if i did intercourse with my wife then for second intercourse may be after a hour or 3 hours do i have to take GUSUL(bath). Is it true. Please reply me early as i got marriage recently.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.41a
Abu Sa'eed reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "If one has intercourse with his wife and wants to repeat the act, he should perform ablution."
Related by Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood and Ibn Maajah.
In light of the above guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws), one need not perform the ghusl between two intercourses, but rather performing an ablution (wudu) would suffice.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
