Sex with pregnant wife

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
My wife is pregnant and has completed 6 months successfully. We still have sex and she feels comfortable during the sexual intercourse. My question is, is it allowed (Halal) to have sex with wife when she is pregnant? If yes, till what stage it is permissible? Can we continue having sex as far as she is comfortable?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 987/875/SN=8/1438)


According to Shariah, it is lawful to have intercourse with pregnant wife no matter in what stage of pregnancy she is. However, medically it could be harmful to have intercourse before the fourth month and after seventh month of pregnancy, hence one should avoid.

Allah knows Best!
