Drinking Breast Milk

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: You said that it is not permissible to suck the wife’s breast and drink the milk, but will it be permissible to draw milk from the breast by hand by squeezing it and the milk collected in glass and then drink it? If one merely wants to taste it and for no other reason.

A: Drinking the wife’s breast milk is not permissible, by any means. The prohibition is drinking the breast milk of the wife, whether sucked from the breast or extracted.

‘Tasting’ is not a valid reason.
