Can a Husband Place His Private Parts Between His Wife’s Breasts?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Sibghat Ullah


Could you tell me please if I am able to place my penis between my wife’s breasts during lovemaking? The reason for asking is because I know that the discharge coming from the private parts is unclean, but I am also told that all part of my wife’s body is permissible to be kissed. If this is true, how about if I kissed my wife’s breasts after they have been in contact with the semen when I placed my penis between her breasts, as semen would surely now be on my tongue

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If the man takes the fluid of the woman in his mouth, then this will haram as it is impure and vice versa.[ii]

However, if the act consists of the wife kissing her husband’s penis or the husband kisses her genitals and they avoid any areas where there is pre-ejaculatory fluid, then there is a difference of opinion. Some scholars say that it will be permissible (Mubah), although disliked whilst others say it will still remain Makruh (disliked). Fatawa Rahimiyah p.406 v.9

Only Allah knows best.
