Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Mufti Muhammad Adnan


I am having some questions regarding Ramadhan the questions are as follows..

1. Can a husband and wife do a french kiss during fasting what happens if the husband swallows the wifes saliva.
2. Is it permissible for husband to see his wife nude throughout the day during fasting.
3. Can a husband and wife touch their private parts   i.e. penis,boobs, vagina…etc
4.is it permissible to sleep nude lonely.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


1.”If one swallows the saliva of another, one’s fast will be invalidated without expiation (kaffarah) being necessary, unless the saliva is of one’s friend (or spouse), for that will also necessitate expiation.” ( Fataawa Hindiyyah v.1 p.203)

  1. It is makrooh to do such things that can arouse each other during fasting. (Fatwa Darul Uloom Deoband)
  1. see above

4. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “ Imaan has more than sixty branches and Hayaa(modesty) is an extremely important branch of Imaan. (Bukhari, Hadith: 08)

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Mas’ood (Radiallahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “ When you begin to lack modesty, then do whatever you wish”. (Bukhari, Hadith: 3225)

It is also narrated on the authority of Imraan ibn Husayn (Radiallahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “ Hayaa (modesty) only brings good”. (Bukhari, Hadith: 5652)

It is against the dictates of Hayaa (modesty) to sleep naked.

Only Allah Knows Best
