Is Oral Sex permissible?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

as salam o alaikum…….i am struck in a confusion…..licking private part of lawful wife is allowed or haram?????


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Shariah greatly emphasizes the traits of modesty and shame.


Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:


حدثنا أبو مسعود عقبة قال قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إن مما أدرك الناس من كلام النبوة إذا لم تستحي فافعل ما شئت رواه البخاري

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) says: ‘If you do not have shame, do as you wish’.



It is against the dictates of shame and modesty that the same limb of the body which recites the Qur’an and makes the Zikr of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) be used for such an act. The Fuqahaa (Jurists) have ruled that it is Makrooh Tahreemi (highly reprehensible) for one to do such an act.
