    It looks like Muhammed had very busy nights during Ramadan. He not only had sex but studied the Qur’an with the angel Gabriel. Later on, Aisha said The prophet spent the last ten days in the Mosque and did not have sex with his wives.

    ‘Aishah, and Umm Salamah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
    The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) would wake during Ramadan (fasting) in a state of major impurity without a wet dream, but on account of sexual intercourse and he would take a bath before dawn.

    Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) was the most generous of all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel met him.
