The Details of the Question

Is the fast of a man invalidated if he kisses and hugs his wife?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Having a sexual intercourse invalidates fasting and necessitates kaffarah. Semen coming out from a man or woman due to kissing, caressing, hugging, etc. invalidates fasting and necessitates qada. Fasting is not broken if madhi (prostatic fluid) only comes out due to lust.

If sperm does not come out when a man kisses and caresses his wife or holds her hand, his fast is not invalidated. It is makruh for a person who cannot control his soul to kiss and caress his wife because sperm might come and invalidate his fast.

It is not makruh for a man to kiss and hug his wife if it is not excessive and if he can control himself. It is makruh for a wife and husband to hug each other if they are naked even if they can control themselves.
