I have a question about what seems to be a contradiction, though I could very obviously be mistaken. This is in regards to passionate kissing while fasting. In the answer to the following post (My husband does not like kissing or other displays of physical affection. He is religious, though, and may listen to religious advice) answered by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari on the Sunnipath website, it is stated that: “Passionate kissing (or French kissing) is also the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace). Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) would kiss her whilst he was fasting (m, refer to the fiqh of kissing during fast) and he would suck her tongue.” (Sunan Abu Dawud, no. 2378) “ But in the post entitled (French Kissing While fasting, answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani) on the same website, it says: “French-kissing would inevitably result in an exchange of saliva, and then that saliva being swallowed. As such, given the legal maxim that, “The inevitable is considered actual,” [Ibn Nujaym, al-Ashbah] the fast would be considered broken, and must be made up. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]”?
