Salamu alaykum, brothers and sisters.

I have question which I got confused and I hope inshallah I will get right answer. My question is:

  1. salam, brother.. i am Way too young to give advice, but in Islam, there is No aurah between husand and wife :) (Means it Is permissible)

    • Dear Sister,

      If you have the knowledge and the wisdom, then you are not too young to offer advice :O).

      • AsSalaamu Alaikum, my Dear Brothers and Sisters!!!

        Even though you may secure your privacy using the best guaranteed technology. However, it will remain inadvisable, for your Aurahs to be shared on SKYPE or on any other social network, because you CANNOT really have the COMPLETE guarantee for your privacy security, seeing that we are in the world where new ways of technology are discovered every day, and Hackers make efforts in finding ways with new technologies to penetrate through secured privacy.

        It might be that no one is even watching you, but since there is a possibility that someone might see you, then it is better not to show your Aurahs at all.

        As in the Islamic law, where there are two possibilities in the same context, for something happening or not happening, MOST of the times, the first possibility (happening) is considered and chosen over the second possibility (not happening).

        Only Allah knows best.

    • Earlier i wanted to reply on a similar post but i lost that question. Anyways, even though husband and wife are allowed to be naked and see each others part as there is no awra between husband and wife but it is preferred to not be completely naked and this is what scholars has been saying and here is the hadith which supports this
      Sayyida Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) said: “I never saw the Messenger of Allah’s (Allah bless him & give him peace) private parts”. (Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith no. 662)

      Allah knows the best,
      Salaam

      • Aslaam alaikum,

        That hadith is classified as weak.

        • Walaykum assalaam Professor,

          Why/how do you say, that this Hadith is weak?

          I am curious.

          • Asalaam alaikum,

            It's been classified as such involving the chain of narrators.

            The Athar is in the Musnad Al-Imam Al-Shafi'e (رحمه الله)

            Qais Bin Al-Rabee' Al-Asdi who is weak as Imam Al-Shawkani said and it has as well Husain bin Maymoun who is weak as Imam Bukhari, Ibn Al-madini and Abu Hatim stated.

  2. Asalaam alikum,

    Just make sure the connection is secure and private (no public networks), preferably hardwired through a CAT cable and not through wireless, since the latter is open to interception if the proper protocols are not in place. Always keep security in mind and be careful to avoid masturbation. I would also suggest to NEVER record your time, either. Too many problems have been arising from this issue and a Muslims must always be protected in this regard.

    Other than that, indulge in each other's beauty. May Allah (swt) keep your marriage safe and happy in this world and in the hereafter.

  3. Its permissible but its not advised and DO NOT MAKE IT AS A HABIT. As a husband should not be away from his wife for more than 6 months !!!
    The husband is not to stay away from his wife or keep his wife in a state of suspense, whether at home or abroad, for a protracted period of time except with her consent. Allah said: "Turn not away (from your wife) altogether, so as to leave her hanging. If you come to a friendly understanding and practice self-restraint, then Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Merciful" (4:129).

    SO IF YOU ARE INTENTIONALLY AWAY EXCEPT ILLNESS, WAR ,IMPRISONMENT ETC U HAVE A REASON TO STAY AWAY. Else you should not stay away from her.

    I hope that you were answered satisfyingly

    Assalam oalykum ,may Allah make you and your wife jamah for khair ameen

  4. Salam,

    Be very careful as Professor X said. My sister just bought a used computer and the information and such that was still contained on the hard drive was out of this world. Peoples social security numbers and information that was not for her to know. Just imagine if anything is captured on either of your computers...something that you may not even be aware of. You just never know. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Salam

  5. The internet remembers things, it remembers things forever. Don't do this.

    I've been away from my wife for more than 3 months due to VISA issues, thankfully we have and never will resort to this.

    Don;t do it.

  6. In my opinion, Islamically you both have full rights to see each other and enjoy each other's company.
    BUT you should avoid doing it because connections may not be secure, you could be recorded, in the age of internet anything is possible. Whenever you connect to internet, you whole system is accessible. There is nothing such a privacy on internet. So please be careful.

  7. Do you know who run's skype, You would STOP if you did:(

  8. it seems awkward to do such a thing. In my opinion you both CAN wait to see eachother. Even Muslim's are turning to technology?

  9. hey .. dont do this .. computers are not safe ... n think if ur skype sex captured by someone and they used it for porn then what u do.. so dont do it via computer

    when u meet then do it...

  10. is it that easy for people to see your privet video chat? I use skype all the time, how can someone spy on you?

  11. salem alaikom
    i think this s not possible becose i think skype b sometimes controlled so other persons can see the husbund and his wife nacked and allah know best
    salem alaikom

  12. Salaams,

    I know this is an old thread, but I recently was at a Continuing Education workshop on ethics for my field (psychotherapy). In it we discussed the ethical implications of having therapy sessions via skype and other electronic means.

    I found out through that workshop that skype is NOT a secure connection. If I were to have counseling with a client through skype, all the confidential information that the client is sharing with me during that session has the potential of being accessed by hackers. We were advised to use certain websites that are known in my field to accomodate such confidential meetings and have authentically secure connections to conduct tele-therapy through.

    That being said, I would say there is a risk that what you do on skype may not be just between the two of you. If you did want to use a more secure server than skype, where privacy was guaranteed, then in that case your awrahs may be shared with one another as you like and need.

    • Salam,
      please I need more help with this,

      you say that it's easy for strangers to see my video chat ? or they just can see what you write on Skype?

      what is the chance that someone will be waiting for me online all day to start my call?

      • Salam,

        The question is...is it worth the risk? Technology is advancing daily. With the right person and know how...anything is possible. Is it worth risking finding years from now your nude pictures or worse yet, you most intimate moments with your partner via the web for the world to see? In my opinion, it's a risk not worth taking.

        Salam

        • now I understand the risk, and always to be careful, but my question is what if we did it one time in the past? I know it was a mistake that we will never do again,
          but what should we think now? that maybe there was someone looking after us on Skype and saw our video? someone waiting for our call to start that he can see us?

          Thank you

  13. No. don't do it as the skype administration is monitoring you.
