Ramadan Question: ‘Can I hug my wife while fasting’?

Dr. Ali Ahmed Mashaelnews54s54f54sf54A UAE resident asks, ‘Can I hug my wife while fasting’?
Dr. Ali Ahmed Mashael: In Ramadan, it could stir desire and therefore, hugging and kissing is forbidden.
Physical affection between a married couple during Ramadan corrupts the worship.
A couple must refrain from doing this until after iftar.
