Haraam Intercourse with Wife


What are the days in a week or month or the whole calender whereby it is haraam to have sexual intercourse with a spouse apart from the days of her monthly periods?


Salamun Alaykum

It is haram to have sexual intercourse during the days of her monthly
period (haidh); also during lochia or post birth bleeding (nifas); while
in ihram of umra or haj, before tawafun nisa has been completed; while in
I’tiqaf ( a special 3 day worship when one stays in a mosque continuously
and fasts thereafter); during a wajib fast; or when there is a danger of
harm to the wife.
