Q 6: What is the ruling on someone who
engaged in foreplay with his wife while fasting and ejaculated without intercourse,
may Allah reward you?
If a husband engages in foreplay with his wife while fasting during Ramadan and ejaculates without intercourse, his fast will be invalid, and he should abstain from fast invalidators for the rest of the day. Moreover, he has to make up for that day (after Ramadan) and ask Allah for forgiveness. Anyway, he is not liable for a Kaffarah (expiation). So while fasting, we must guard our fasts against acts or words that nullify it or cause it to be defective. In this regard, a fasting person should abstain from sexual desire, eating, and drinking for the sake of Allah as authentically narrated from the Prophet (peace be upon him).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
