The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Sexual intercourse during fasting from dawn to dusk is not permissible. Sexual intercourse while fasting during the day invalidates the fast. The penalty is to fast an additional period of 60 continuous days. If one is not able to do so then he must feed sixty poor people-one average meal each. But it is permissible to have sexual intercourse after iftar (Breaking the fast after sunset) until the time of imsaq (abstinence).

The fast is not broken because of kissing his wife or any other one, but the fast is broken if man or woman ejaculates because of kissing, caressing, embracing or etcand this requires only one day qadha but not a kaffarah. If something ejaculates without any desire from his/her sexual organs the fast is not broken.

Permitted Acts of Fasting: (Related with your question)

Kissing, provided that one has self-control.

Kissing, touching, and stroking the opposite sex, provided that no ejaculation occurs, as well as any sexual activity that does not result in ejaculation. Any ejaculation that is the result of looking and thinking does not invalidate the fast.

Forbidden Acts Requiring a Make-up Day:

Ejaculation that occurs with pleasure by kissing, touching, and masturbation.
