Are sexual relations with one’s wife permissible in the odd-numbered nights during the last 10 nights of Ramadhan?



In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,




It is totally permissible and perfectly fine to have relations with one’s wife during the nights (including the odd-numbered nights during the last 10 nights) of Ramadhan.


Allah (SWA) says:

“Lawful for you, on the night of the fasts, is the approach (sexual intercourse) to your wives. They are your garments and you are their garments. Allah knows what you used to do secretly among yourselves, but He turned to you and forgave you; so now cohabit with them (your wives) and seek what Allah has ordained for you, and eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appears to you distinct from its black thread. Then complete your fast till the night appears…” (Surah Baqarah v.187)



Only Allah Knows Best
