Title

Kissing the wife whilst fasting

Question

Can a person kiss their wife in mouth while fasting?

Answer

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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, it is permissible to kiss one’s spouse whilst fasting on condition that there is no fear of being incited. If there is fear of being incited, then it will be disliked to kiss.[1] However, if saliva of one spouse is swallowed by the other, the fast will be nullified. [2]

Hence, kissing your wife whilst fasting would invalidate the fast.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

 وَأَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ، وَأَبُو زَكَرِيَّا قَالَا: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْعَبَّاسِ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا الرَّبِيعُ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا الشَّافِعِيُّ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا مَالِكٌ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ: أَنَّ ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ، سُئِلَ عَنِ الْقُبْلَةِ لِلصَّائِمِ؟ «فَأَرْخَصَ فِيهَا لِلشَّيْخِ، وَكَرِهَهَا لِلشَّابِّ»

شرح معاني الآثار (2/ 89)

حدثنا محمد بن خزيمة , قال: ثنا حجاج , قال: ثنا حماد , عن أبي حمزة , عن مورق , عن ابن عمر , أنه سئل عن القبلة للصائم فأرخص فيها للشيخ وكرهها للشاب فدل ذلك أن هذا كان، عنده، أولى مما حدثه به عمر مما ذكره عمر بن حمزة في حديثه. وأما [ص:90] ما قد احتجوا به من قول ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه فإنه قد روي عنه أيضا خلاف ذلك

ولو ابتلع بزاق غيره فسد صومه بغير كفارة إلا إذا كان بزاق صديقه فحينئذ تلزمه الكفارة كذا في المحيط

البناية شرح الهداية (4/ 47)

ولو بلع بزاق غيره أفسد صومه ولا كفارة عليه، كذا في " المحيط ". وفي " البدائع " لو ابتلع ريق حبيبته أو [صديقه] ، قال الحلواني عليه كفارة،

درر الحكام شرح غرر الأحكام (1/ 207)

وقال ابتلع بزاق حبيبه لا كفارة ثم رمز للمحيط وقال كفر اهـ.

 وَلَو ابتلع الصَّائِم بزاق غَيره فَإِن كَانَ حَبِيبه لزمَه الْكَفَّارَة وَإِلَّا فَلَا،
