Is it makrooh to have intercourse facing the direction of the qiblah?

Question

Is it makrooh to have intercourse facing the direction of the qiblah either out of doors or indoors? Are there any differences of opinion among the scholars concerning this matter?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

That is not makrooh, either out of doors or indoors. This is the view of al-Shaafa'i and all the scholars, except for some of the companions of Maalik. And Allaah knows best.
