Could I touch My wifes body during menstruation ?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
In principle, it is permissible for one to become intimate with one’s wife who is in the state of Haydh from the entire body excluding the area below the navel until the knee. It is permissible for one to become intimate with one’s wife from the area below the navel until the knee on condition that there is a barrier between the wife and husband. It is not permissible for one to have intercourse with one’s wife in the state of Haydh in any event.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
