In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In this fatwa:
Answering your question, Dr. Wael Shehab, PhD in Islamic Studies from Al-Azhar University and currently the Imam of the Downtown Toronto Masjid in Canada, states:
If a husband and his wife are not fasting for a legal reason such as traveling, then it is OK for them to make love during the daytime of Ramadan as they are not fasting. They should make up for that day later on.
Almighty Allah knows best.
