FAQ about Ramadan

What is the validity of their fast if some people eat during the second adhan call at dawn for the month of Ramadan?

It is necessary to stop while he hears the call to prayer and refrain from eating or drinking if the Adhan Announcer calls the dawn precisely at the real time of Adhan. However, if the Adhan Announcer calls for prayer at first light without being certain, he is permitted to eat and drink until the muezzin (announcer) has finished. Sheikh Muhammad bin Uthaymeen.

Does a person who is fasting during Ramadan break their fast if they bleed?

As long as the person is careful not to swallow the blood, which is coming out of the mouth without their consent, bleeding that gets on the teeth has no effect on them. It is not considered to be breaking the fast in this instance, so the person who tests the blood is not required to make up his fasting day. Similar to the above, if a person has nosebleeds and is aware that he does not swallow it, he is under no obligation to make up that fasting day. Sheikh Muhammad bin Uthaymeen.

What is the Ramadan law regarding the use of fragrant scents during the day by those who are fasting?

With the exception of incense, which should not be intentionally inhaled because the smoke has an object that can reach the stomach, using it during the day during Ramadan is acceptable. Sheikh Muhammad Bin Uthaymeen.

Is it acceptable for a person who is fasting during Ramadan to kiss his wife and engage in sexual activity with her in bed?

Yes, it is permissible for a fasting person to kiss and touch his wife while he is fasting, whether in Ramadan or other than Ramadan, but in the case he gets semen because of that, his fast is invalidated. His fast is broken and he does not have to stop fasting. But if his fast is obligatory, he must make up that day, and if his fasting was voluntary, then he does not have to make it up. [Sheikh Muhammad bin Uthaymeen]
