Embracing spouse while fasting? – (Hanbali Fiqh)

Answered according to Hanbali Fiqh by TheHanbaliMadhhab.com

The mother of the believers, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: “The Messenger (peace be upon him) would kiss and embrace [his wives] while fasting, but he was the most capable of controlling his desire.”

[Agreed Upon].

However, kissing and embracing the spouse becomes disliked if it causes one sexual arousal, and if one thinks that it will lead him to breaking his fast, then it becomes impermissible.
