Anal Sex whilst fasting

CategoriesSawm (fast) [227]

If anal sex is done with ones wife while she was sleepling (and both the partners were fasting for Ramadhaan). what will the ruling be regarding their fast. Qadha and kaffaara or just Qadha?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


Anal Sex is something which is haram and unlawful in Islam. It is narrated by Saaiduna Ibn Abbas Radiallahu Anhu that the Prophet of Allah Sallahu Alahi Wasalam has said:

“Allah does not look at a man who comes to a man or to a woman through its back.”

(Sunan Tirmizi p.220 v.1)

With regards to your question the husbands fast will break by having anal sex with his wife. He will be required to do qadha of the fast and give kaffarah as well. (Raddul Muhtar p.386 v.3)

The answer to the second part of the question is that as the wife was sleeping when the husband had anal sex with her, the fast will break but she would not be required to give kaffarah. (Hidayah p.227 v.1)
