Is sexual intercourse allowed during Ramadhan between iftar and and sahoor time?

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:

Is sexual intercourse allowed during Ramadhan between iftar and and sahoor time? If yes, can one fast after the intercourse without performing Ghusl until for the Fajr prayers, or must the Gusal be performed before the end of sahoor time?

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Ramadan sex ghusl fast

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: Is sexual intercourse allowed during Ramadhan between iftar and and sahoor time?

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

187 Permitted to you on the night of the fasts is the approach (sexual intercourse) 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 (sexual intercourse) with them (your wives), 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 permissible for the believers to enjoy full conjugal relations with their wives during the nights of Ramadan; ie. after the iftaar and before fajr time.

 

Your Question: If yes, can one fast after the intercourse without performing Ghusl until for the Fajr prayers, or must the Gusal be performed before the end of sahoor time?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.153 Narrated by Abu Bakr bin Abdur Rahman

My father and I went to 'Aisha and she said, "I testify that Allah's Messenger (saws) at times used to get up in the morning in a state of Janaba from sexual intercourse, not from a wet dream and then he would fast that day." Then he went to Um Salama (another wife of the Prophet (saws)) and she also narrated a similar thing.

 

Although it is highly recommended that one purify oneself immediately after sexual intercourse, there is absolutely no obligation upon the believers that they must purify themselves from the state of janaba before suhoor in order to fulfill their fast.

 

There is evidence and allowance in the Sunnah that if one wishes to sleep, eat, or drink or do other chores before purifying oneself from their state of janaba, one must at least do the wudu or ablution.

 

If one does not perform the ghusl immediately after sex for any reason, it would be better and purer to perform the wudu (ablution) and go about ones chores, and perform the ghusl later when one intends to pray or recite the Quran.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 603 Narrated by Aisha

Abdullah ibn AbdulQays said, "I asked Aisha about the Witr (prayer) of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and made mention of a hadith, then I said: What did he (saws) do after having sexual intercourse? Did he take a bath before going to sleep or did he sleep before taking a bath? She said: He (saws) did all these. Sometimes he (saws) took a bath and then slept, and sometimes he (saws) performed ablution only and went to sleep. I (the narrator) said: Praise be to Allah Who has made things easy (for the believers in the deen).

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
