Husband drinking his wife’s breast milk

Q: Suppose if a couple have a baby who has just reached 2 years of age and as a result baby’s mother stops breastfeeding him. But there is milk left in the breast and the husband wants to drink this milk intentionally during foreplay. Can the husband do this because this milk has no use now as their child no more drinks breast milk. Please give me the answer as soon as possible.


A: It is not permissible for the husband to drink his wife’s breast milk. If he intentionally drinks his wife’s breast milk, he will be sinful.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
