Section : Touching a woman.

‘Aishah related that the Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, kissed her while he was fasting and said, “Kissing does not nullify the ablution, nor does it break the fast.” (Related by Ishaq ibn Rahawaih and al-Bazzar with a good chain.)

Evaluating its authenticity, ‘Abdul-Haqq says, “I do not know of any defect in the hadith that could cause its rejection.”

‘Aishah also said, “One night, I missed the Messenger of Allah in my bed, and so went to look for him. I put my hand on the bottom of his feet while he was praying and saying, ‘O Allah, I seek refuge in Your pleasure from Your anger, in Your forgiveness from Your punishment, in You from You. I cannot praise you as You have praised Yourself” (related by Muslim and at-Tirmizhi, who classified it as sahih.), and she also reported, ‘The Prophet kissed some of his wives and went to prayer, without performing ablution.” (Related by Ahmad and “the four,” and its narrators are trustworthy.) She also said, “I would sleep in front of the Prophet, upon whom be peace, with my feet in the direction of the qiblah (to him). When he made prostrations, he would touch me, and I would move my feet.” In another narration it says, “When he wanted to prostrate, he would touch my legs.”
