It is forbidden for a man to have sexual intercourse with his wife during the day in Ramadan, and it is forbidden for a woman to give in to her husband’s desire to have sexual intercourse. This is because there is no obedience to the creation in the disobedience of the Creator.

If the husband is aware that this act is forbidden during the daytime in Ramadan and coerces his wife to have intercourse nonetheless, he will have committed a big transgression and he must make up the day and offer an expiation.

Maaliki states that he must offer expiation for himself and for his wife as well.
