Imsak Time, Between The Preferred Time and The Permissible One

ramadhanThe time for fasting commences at Subah Sadiq (true dawn) and all scholars agreed with that and also it means the cut-off point for consuming sahur is the arrival of dawn (fajr time). This is based on Quran:

It is made lawful for you to go unto your wives on the night of the fast. They are raiment for you and ye are raiment for them. Allah is aware that ye were deceiving yourselves in this respect and He hath turned in mercy toward you and relieved you. So hold intercourse with them and seek that which Allah hath ordained for you, and eat and drink until the white thread becometh distinct to you from the black thread of the dawn. Then strictly observe the fast till nightfall and touch them not, but be at your devotions in the mosques. These are the limits imposed by Allah, so approach them not. Thus Allah expoundeth His revelations to mankind that they may ward off (evil). (Al-Baqarah: 187)

Oral Stimulation Between Husband and Wife in Islam


Can a married couple gratify each other through oral stimulation?


Sheikh Ahmad Kutty opinion:

There is nothing in Islam that categorically forbids married couples from gratifying each other through oral stimulation, if it is based on consensual agreement.
