Question: My question is regarding this answer:

Isn’t it that only sexual intercourse is forbidden before tawaf-e ziyarat? In the given question, it seems to have been limited to hug and kiss only. Will the dam of sacrifice still apply?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health states.

Yes, the sacrifice of a sheep (dam) still applies. Foreplay (touching with pleasure, kissing, etc.) is also a violation.

And Allah knows best.
