Question: Is it permissible to have intercourse (SEX) with husband during Ramadhaan time?

While it is forbidden to establish any conjugal relations with one’s spouse while one is fasting during the day, we are certainly allowed to do so during the night until the arrival of dawn (i.e. fajr).

Allah says, “It is made lawful for you to go to your wives (in sexual relations) on the night of the fast. They are a garment for you and you are a garment for them. Allah knows that you were deceiving yourself in this respect and He has turned in mercy towards you and pardoned you. Therefore you may now have intercourse with them and seek what Allah has ordained for you. Eat and drink until the white thread (of dawn) becomes distinct to you from the black thread (of night).” (Qur’an: 2: 187).

In short, we are allowed to enjoy intimate sexual relations after breaking the fast throughout the night until the time of abstention from food, drink and gratifications (i.e. when the time of Fajr arrives).
