Sexual relations while fasting

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If a couple has Jima (inercourse) in Ramadhaan, the husband is a hanafi and the wife’s a shafi. Does the husband only pay the kaffarah? 


A: Apart from the qazaa, both will have to fast two months consecutively as kaffarah for breaking the fast of Ramadaan intentionally.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
