Sexual Intimacy During Fast.

CategoriesSawm (fast) [218]

Fatwa ID: 02718

Answered by: Moulana Imran Mughal


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!

I want to know if my husband can rub his private part on mine during fast if there is a cloth in between?

I know that ejaculation invalidates the fast but we don't reach to that point so if we know that we won't climax while touching each other's private part during fast.

Is it permissible?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh,

As long as ejaculation does not take place the fast will be intact. However, in fear of ejaculation, one must take precaution if they believe that most likely they will ejaculate.[1]
