Being intimate with one’s wife during haidh

Q: We know that sexual intercourse is haram when wife is in menstrual period but can husband masturbate his wife during menstrual period if the wife agrees and reaches orgasm?


A: During menses it is impermissible for the husband to touch any part of the wife’s body between the navel and knee without any covering cloth.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

فيجوز الاستمتاع بالسرة وما فوقها والركبة وما تحتها ولو بلا حائل وكذا بما بينهما بحائل بغير الوطء ولو تلطخ دما ( رد المحتار 1/292)
