In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Question:

 

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi

 

What is the ruling of someone who had sexual relation with his wife during the day of Ramadan?

 Thank you

 

 

Answer

 

 He has to fast a day instead and set a slave free, fast for sixty consequetive days, or feed sixty poor people. As for the wife, she has to fast a day instead and if she was content with having sexual relation during the day of Ramadan, she has to do the same as her husband.

 Best regards

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
