Permissible Forms of Sexual Intimacy

Question:

Can a man have anal sex with his wife?

Sister Noorah's Answer:

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

Salaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullah

Hello. You are asking about a very intimate topic, but it is vital in Islam to know about our religion even in such matters as these.

Please be aware that there are two types of marital intimacy which are NOT permitted in Islam. One is having sexual intercourse with your wife during her menses and during the time when she is in post-childbirth bleeding, and the other is anal intercourse. There are several authentic hadiths which state this and there is no difference of opinion among the scholars.

Please refer to this comprehensive answer:

Islamic Fatwa on Anal Sex

Islam has a very healthy approach to marriage and sexual relations, so you can enjoy your wife and she can enjoy you in other ways except for these. Adhering to this will ensure that you have enjoyment and respect in your marriage and will be a blessing for you. Remember also that it is sunnah to recite the following du'a (supplication) before engaging in marital relations:

"Bismillaah, Allaahumma jannibnaa al-shaytaan wa jannib al-shaytaan maa razqtanaa

(In the name of Allaah, O Allaah Keep us away from the Shaytaan and keep the Shaytaan away from what You bestow on us (our children))."
