f:42 -    When to have a bath
Country : ,
Name :
Question:     Is it necessary to bathe immediately after having sex or we can go to sleep and have a bath before Fajr?


............................................................................
Answer:     Islam is the one religion which has the solutions to all the problems of all spheres of life.  In the same way, Islam has detailed rules about personal and familial life.

Now your question that whether should we bathe immediately after having sex or we can sleep and have a bath before Fajr, the Shariah rule here is that it is not necessary for an unclean (janabi) person to bathe immediately after sex, but it is Mustahsan (i.e. according to the Sunnah) to perform wuzu.  The person can have a bath before Fajr as per convenience.  As given in Fatawa A’alamgiri, Vol 1, Pg No: 16.

And Allah SWT knows best.
