Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Is it permissible for myself to kiss, hug, cuddle or caress my wife in a sexual way in front of our three-year-old daughter? We live in a single room of a Doctors hostel and can’t send her outside.

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

In essence, one should not be sexually intimate in front of one’s children due to the moral and medical reasons behind it although general expressions of love are fine.

We can recommend finding compatible times for you and your spouse to be intimate while your child is asleep or under someone else’s care. 


And Allah SWT knows best.
