The ruling on Kissing for the fasting Person
Question:

If a young man or an elderly man kisses his wife while he is fasting has he committed a sin?
Answer:

The fasting person has not committed a sin by kissing his wife, regardless of whether he is a young man or an elderly man. This is due to what is recorded in Sahih Muslim that Umar bin Abu Salamah asked the Prophet- Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam- Does the Fasting person kiss? The Prophet- Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam- said: Ask this women(meaning Umm Salamah). So, she told him that the Prophet- Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam- would do that,Then he (Umar bin Abu Salamah) Said: O Messenger of Allah! Verily, Allah has forgiven you for your earlier and latter sins. Then the Prophet- Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam- said: By Allah, verily I am more pious regarding Allah (i.e. His Laws) than you all and I fear Allah more than you all. [1]
