Q. What is the ruling of intercourse during pregnancy? Some say it is okay and others say it is harmful to the mother and child? Please explain?
A. Intercourse during pregnancy is based on the well-being of the mother and the child in the womb. If there is a fear of harm to the mother or child, it should be refrained.
