Is It Allowed for a Muslim Man To Use His Tongue on His Wife’s Private Parts?

Is it allowed for a Muslim man to use his tongue on his wife’s private parts?

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


Marriage in Islam is done for: –

⦁ Keeping the chastity and piety.

⦁ Procreate.

Based on this, certain sexual pleasures are permissible except for anal sex, sex during menstruation and during post-natal bleeding.

It is narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas that the Messenger received the revelation, “Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth . . .” (Al-Qur’an 2:223) that means from in front or behind, but avoid the anus and intercourse during menstruation.

There should be a mutual agreement between the spouses and also it should not bring harm to either of them during the foreplay.

If the man takes the fluid of the woman in his mouth, then this will haram as it is impure and vice versa. (Radd ul Muhtar p.300 v.1)

However, if the act consists of the wife kissing her husband’s penis or the husband kissing 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.
