June 8, 2017

Aisha reported: A man came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and said that he was ruined. The Prophet said, “What is the matter?” He said, “I had intercourse with my wife while fasting in Ramadan.” Then a basket of dates was brought to the Prophet, and the Prophet said, “Where is the ruined man?” The man said, “I am here.” The Prophet said, “Give this basket in charity.”
