Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'n-Nadr, the mawlaof Umar ibn Ubaydullah that A'isha bint Talha told himthat she was once with A'isha, the wife of the Prophet,may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and her husband,who was fasting, came and visited her there. (He wasAbdullah ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Abi Bakras-Siddiq.) A'ishasaid to him, "What's stopping you from coming close toyour wife and kissing her and joking with her?" He said,"Can I kiss her when I am fasting?" She said, "Yes."
