Mentioning Allaah during intercourse
Fatwa No: 139425


While having intercourse with wife, can we thanks Allah pronouncing Alhamdulillah. Can we intercourse with wife @ the time between Fajr &Ishraq (sunrise) and between Asr & Maghreeb prayers.


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Mentioning Allaah during intercourse is disliked and this contradicts good conduct with Allaah.

In principle, having sexual intercourse with one's wife is permissible at all times, therefore, it is permissible for the husband to have intercourse with his wife between the Fajr prayer and sunrise, and between the ‘Asr prayer and Maghrib prayer, however, he should not do so if he fears to miss the congregational prayer as we clarified in Fatwa 86793.

For more benefit on the etiquette of having sexual intercourse, please refer to Fatwa 81556.

Allaah Knows best.
