Being intimate while the wife is experiencing haidh

Q: According to hanafi madhab, if a woman has a sexual urge during menstruation, is it permissible for her husband to rub over her private area (while the area between her navel and knees are covered), until she reaches orgasm? If not, can he satisfy her by playing with her breasts?


A: Yes

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