    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    May Allah reward you for your question.

    A husband and wife are permitted to enjoy marital intercourse at any time. The only prohibited occasions for intercourse are the following:
    • When the wife is experiencing menses and or post-natal bleeding
    • When either partner is fasting during daylight hours
    • When either partner is in the state of ihram

    And Allah knows best.
