QA28

Question

Assalam alaykum warahmatullah

Pls, if time of salat comes in while having intimacy and zawj ask for another round again but it’s already time for salat, if the wife deny him of that another round and the husband got angry….hope the wife is not sinning?

Answer

What the wife has done is assisting him on good deeds. If the adzaan has been made and the husband is among those who have no excuse not to pray salaatul jama’ah, then he should get up, make ghuslu and go for salaat. The wife should do same and obseve her salaat.
After that, they may decide to continue or opt for another time. But the wife should not deny him if he wishes to continue after salat.
Additionally, the wife should also assist him to soften his desire by saying good statement: e.g, “My honey, I want you as much as you do. Let’s be patient to pray salaat so you have reward for jama’ah, then we may continue our escapade. I can’t wait to make you happy.”
Allah disaproved of those who are not mindful of their salaat as a result of following lust in suratu Maryam, verse 59
