Narrated A’isha: “The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) used to kiss and embrace while he was fasting, but he was the one of you who had most control over his desire.”

Kissing one’s wife with the intention of pleasure is disliked for the fasting person according to the majority of Muslim jurists, as it could lead to the invalidation of one’s fast. Kissing becomes haram/prohibited if it leads to secretion of semen/mani, as that invalidates the fast.
