|Why Is Sex Regarded As Something That Is Not Pure? by Aleliberty(m): 6:16am On May 28, 2018
Why is it that sex is a taboo during the noon of fasting?
I mean why is it not allowed for legally married couple to engage in sex during fasting, God created sex for couples, sex is not a sin, sex is not satanic and also. Fasting is a medical terminology meaning abstinence from all kind of food, water or all consumables for at least 8 hours. Also, religiously fasting is seen as an holy things, so where did sex becomes something that can terminate fasting.
Is it that sex is naturally unholy thing or is it a food?

1. The God of Islam (Allaah) made it so. Muslims are to abstain from food, water, sex, etc during the period of Fajr to Sunset (Magrib). Islam is a complete way of life. We hear and we obey!
2. Eating food is not a sin except the food is stolen, so also sex is also a kind of "food" for the married.
3. Sex in marriage is holy and sex out of marriage is unholy, filthy and punishable as Allah wills!
4. Sex is an act of worship in Islam and one who does it in marriage is rewarded positively while those who do it out of marriage gets negative reward.
5. The Islamic kind of fasting is as such that we follow the Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wasalam). All acts of worship in Islam are as the Prophet explained it to his companions!

Thanks for the reply, I will be glad if there is any Quranic back up to this, simply because human way of reasoning as find its way into religion, obviously the two common religion in Nigeria believe Sex is a no no while fasting.

أُحِلَّ لَكُمْ لَيْلَةَ ٱلصِّيَامِ ٱلرَّفَثُ إِلَىٰ نِسَآئِكُمْۚ هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّۗ عَلِمَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ تَخْتَانُونَ أَنفُسَكُمْ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَعَفَا عَنكُمْۖ فَٱلْئَٰنَ بَٰشِرُوهُنَّ وَٱبْتَغُوا مَا كَتَبَ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْۚ وَكُلُوا وَٱشْرَبُوا حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمُ ٱلْخَيْطُ ٱلْأَبْيَضُ مِنَ ٱلْخَيْطِ ٱلْأَسْوَدِ مِنَ ٱلْفَجْرِۖ ثُمَّ أَتِمُّوا ٱلصِّيَامَ إِلَى ٱلَّيْلِۚ وَلَا تُبَٰشِرُوهُنَّ وَأَنتُمْ عَٰكِفُونَ فِى ٱلْمَسَٰجِدِۗ تِلْكَ حُدُودُ ٱللَّهِ فَلَا تَقْرَبُوهَاۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ ءَايَٰتِهِۧ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَّقُونَ
It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations] . They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [of night]. Then complete the fast until the sunset . And do not have relations with them as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques. These are the limits [set by] Allah, so do not approach them. Thus does Allah make clear His ordinances to the people that they may become righteous .

@cancelled, it is THE NIGHT (AL-LAYL), not sunset.
|Re: Why Is Sex Regarded As Something That Is Not Pure? by Fundamentalist: 6:15am On May 30, 2018
Interpretation Al baqir , we are required to break the fast when the sunsets (magrib) .
حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عُرْوَةَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبِي يَقُولُ، سَمِعْتُ عَاصِمَ بْنَ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم " إِذَا أَقْبَلَ اللَّيْلُ مِنْ هَا هُنَا، وَأَدْبَرَ النَّهَارُ مِنْ هَا هُنَا، وَغَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ، فَقَدْ أَفْطَرَ الصَّائِمُ ".
Narrated `Umar bin Al-Khattab: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "When night falls from this side and the day vanishes from this side and the sun sets, then the fasting person should break his fast."
Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 1954
In-book reference : Book 30, Hadith no 61
No one understands Arabic and the Qur'an like the messenger : Allah says ;
وَمَآ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ إِلَّا لِتُبَيِّنَ لَهُمُ ٱلَّذِى ٱخْتَلَفُوا فِيهِۙ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ
And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe
The prophet had explained to us what Allah meant in that verse , sunset is the beginning of the night , I wonder why the fuse.
This is an explanation from the chosen one who was sent to deliver and explain the message , I stick to his explanation

You can save your tafsir to the appropriate thread:
# The Crystal clear word used by the Quran is AL-LAYL - THE NIGHT, not sunset that that translation is smuggling into the verse.

Sex outside marriage is death penalty (stone to death) or heavy lashes, so yeah Islam is the complete way of life.

Assaalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa baraakatuhu!
(May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allaah be with you!)
It is permissible for the husband and the wife to enjoy each other during the night of the fasts, but it is absolutely impermissible and forbidden for them to have sexual relations with each other during the fasting hours.
Allah سبحانه و تعالى (Glory to Him, the Most High) says:
اُحِلَّ لَـکُمۡ لَيۡلَةَ الصِّيَامِ الرَّفَثُ اِلٰى نِسَآئِكُمۡؕ هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّـكُمۡ وَاَنۡـتُمۡ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّ ؕ عَلِمَ اللّٰهُ اَنَّکُمۡ كُنۡتُمۡ تَخۡتَانُوۡنَ اَنۡفُسَکُمۡ فَتَابَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ وَعَفَا عَنۡكُمۡۚ فَالۡـٰٔنَ بَاشِرُوۡهُنَّ وَابۡتَغُوۡا مَا کَتَبَ اللّٰهُ لَـكُمۡ وَكُلُوۡا وَاشۡرَبُوۡا حَتّٰى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَـكُمُ الۡخَـيۡطُ الۡاَبۡيَضُ مِنَ الۡخَـيۡطِ الۡاَسۡوَدِ مِنَ الۡفَجۡرِؕ ثُمَّ اَتِمُّوا الصِّيَامَ اِلَى الَّيۡلِۚ وَلَا تُبَاشِرُوۡهُنَّ وَاَنۡـتُمۡ عٰكِفُوۡنَ فِى الۡمَسٰجِدِؕ تِلۡكَ حُدُوۡدُ اللّٰهِ فَلَا تَقۡرَبُوۡهَا ؕ كَذٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللّٰهُ اٰيٰتِهٖ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَّقُوۡنَ
It has been made lawful for you to go in to your wives during the night of the fast. They are your garment, and you are theirs. Allah knows that you used to betray yourselves and He mercifully relented and pardoned you. So you may now associate intimately with your wives and benefit from the enjoyment Allah has made lawful for you, and eat and drink at night until you can discern the white streak of dawn against the blackness of the night; then (give up all that and) complete your fasting until night sets in.
If one does have intercourse with his wife while he is fasting, then he must atone for this transgression by either freeing a slave, (and if he cannot afford to do that) by fasting for two months consecutively, (and if he does not have the force to do that) by feeding sixty poor people. This would be the kaffarah or atonement for having sexual intercourse while one is fasting.
Abu Hurairah reported:
A man came to the Messenger of Allah صلي الله عليه وسلم (peace and blessings be upon him and said: "I am destroyed, O Messenger of Allah !" The Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم (peace and blessings be upon him) asked: "What has destroyed you?" He said, "I had intercourse with my wife during a day of Ramadan." The Prophet asked: "Are you able to free a slave?" He said, "No". The Prophet asked: "Is it possible for you to fast for two consecutive months?" He said, "No." The Prophet asked: "Is it possible for you to feed sixty poor people?" He said, "No." The Prophet said: "Then sit." A basket of dates was brought to the Prophet and he said to the man: Give this in charity. The man said: "To someone poorer than us? There is no one in this city who is poorer than us!" The Prophet smiled until his molar teeth could be seen and said: "Go and feed your family with it."
Related by Muslim and Bukhari.
Regarding the ruling on hugging, or kissing, etc., there are several narrations from the authentic Sunnah whereby it is recorded that the Messenger of Allah صلي الله عليه وسلم (peace and blessings be upon him) would touch and kiss some of his wives while he was fasting; thus the scholars are unanimous in their opinion that touching, hugging, or kissing ones wives during fasts does not invalidate or break the fast as long as it will not come to a point of having intercourse or ejaculating.
It is reported that 'Aishah رضي الله عن (may Allah be pleased with her) said:
"The Prophet (saws) would kiss and embrace while he was fasting, for he had the most control of all of you over his desires."
"I was excited one time and I kissed [my wife] while I was fasting. I went to the Prophet and said: 'Today I committed a horrendous act--I kissed while I was fasting.' The Prophet asked: 'What do you think of rinsing with water while fasting?' I said: 'There is nothing wrong with that.' The Prophet said: 'Then what is the question about?'"
I hope this helps.

This is quite simple. Sex is not evil, it is only not allowed during the day of permissible at night.

Sex is very pure when with your legitimate partner but as fasting is called abstinence for a period of time which includes sex, food, water etc, we have to obey as commanded. Is water unholy just cos we can't take it cos we're fasting? May Allah make It easy.

We don't appreciate what we have until we lose it.
Appreciate your family, tell them you love them.
Appreciate your friends, tell them you care.
Appreciate your God, tell Him he's God like no other.
I appreciate you.
Appreciate someone now!
