Intercourse with one’s wife during the day in the month of Ramadhaan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Last Ramadhaan I indulged in a major sin unknowingly. One day I was not well and I had not fasted on that day and I had sex with my wife during the day not knowing that whether you fast or not you cannot have sex in the day. Please suggest what to do now.

A: Since, you were not fasting on that day, you will only keep a qadha. If your wife was fasting when she had engaged in relations with you then she will also have to observe the kaffaarah i.e. 60 fasts consecutively and a qadha for that fast.

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