This is one of the most searched term in the internet, Can You Kiss During Ramadan?. Now if we are talking about the Kiss, then there are many kind of kisses. Like parents kiss there child to show love,a husband kisses his wife on forhead to give respect. These kinds of kisses which does not invokes sexual feelings are permissible. Lets see some of the hadiths.
Narrated By Aisha
“The Prophet used to kiss and embrace (his wives) while he was fasting, and he had more power to control his desires than any of you. Said Jabir, “The person who gets discharge after casting a look (on his wife) should complete his fast.” Shahih al-Bukhari Vol 3 Book of Fasting Hadith no. 1927
Narrated by Hisham’s Father
Aisha said, “Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to kiss some of his wives while he was fasting,” and then she smiled. Shahih al-Bukhari Vol 3 Book of Fasting Hadith no. 1928
From the above hadith it is clear that prophet used to kiss and embrace his wives during fasting. But he had more power to control his sexual desires. In another hadith prophet himself indicated that kissing is permissible while fasting. See the following hadtih from abu dawood. Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab:
I got excited, so I kissed while I was fasting, I then said: Messenger of Allah, I have done a big deed; I kissed while I was fasting. He said: What do you think if you rinse your mouth with water while you are fasting. The narrator Isa ibn Hammad said in his version: I said to him: There is no harm in it. Then both of them agreed on the version: He said: Then what?
In the above hadith prophet himself indicated that yes you can kiss your wive. So by concluding the above hadith we can say yes kissing is permissible.
Does Kissing Break Your Fast?
If you are kissing your wive then and you have a 0.1% doubt that it can go that extent where it will nullify your fast then you should not kiss. Only kissing does not breaks your fast. But if after kissing if you gets involved in sexual intercourse with your wife, or you ejaculated semens, then your fast is broken. So if both of you have good self-control then of-course you can kiss or hug your wife. So, I guess it is better to avoid kissing activities with your wive as it may break your fast. But for the actual question of this post which was. “Can You Kiss During Ramadan Fasting?” is obviously YES.
Hope you got the answer that whether you can kiss or not your wive while fasting. Happy Ramadan.
