Do we have to ( Farz ) take bath ( ghusal ) after the intercourse with our wife? If yes ......Then tell me in detail that if someone wants to have more then 1 intercourses in 1 night with his wife.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Do we have to ( Farz ) take bath ( ghusal ) after the intercourse with our wife? If yes ......Then tell me in detail that if someone wants to have more then 1 intercourses in 1 night with his wife. Will it be necessary for him to take bath after every intercourse or he could take bath in the morning after finishing more then 1 intercourses.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: Do we have to ( Farz ) take bath ( ghusal ) after the intercourse with our wife?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 6: O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer wash your faces and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial (post-sexual) impurity, bathe your whole body.
If one in the state of post-sexual impurity, it is absolutely obligatory for the person to have a ghusl or full bath of purification before he makes himself available to offer his prayers.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.41a
If a person in a state of post-sex impurity wants to eat, drink or have intercourse again, he should perform ablution.
Said 'Aishah, "When the Prophet (saws) was in a state of impurity because of intercourse and wanted to eat or sleep, he would perform ablution."
Ammar ibn Yasar reported that the Prophet permitted a person in post-sex impurity to eat, drink or sleep if he performed ablution first.
Related by Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi.
If one is in a state of post-sex impurity, the only act that will purify him is a ghusl or full bath. But if for any reason one wishes to postpone the taking of the ghusl or full bath and wishes to eat or drink or sleep, it is recommended and the Sunnah that he should perform the wudu first before he eats or drinks or sleeps.
Your Question: Then tell me in detail that if someone wants to have more then 1 intercourses in 1 night with his wife. Will it be necessary for him to take bath after every intercourse or he could take bath in the morning after finishing more then 1 intercourses.
Abu Sa'eed reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "If one has intercourse with his wife and wants to repeat the act, he should perform ablution. It makes the return more vivacious."
Related by Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban and al-Hakim.
If one wishes to have more than one intercourse with ones wife, one need not take a ghusl or full bath between the two intercouses, but rather he should perform the wudu or ablution between them.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
