Q: Can a man have anal sex with his wife?
A: Anal sex is totally prohibited in Islam. It is counted among the major sins. The vagina has been created for sexual gratification and not the anus. Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam said: Accursed is that person who enters the anus of his wife. (Abu Dawood). He narrates another Hadeeth: Allah will not look at that person (with mercy) who has anal sex with his wife. (Ibni Maajah)
A person who commits this Haraam act will be accursed and will deprive himself of the mercy of Allah. May Allah Ta’aala save the Ummat from this forbidden act. Aameen.
