Anal sex

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is about anal sex. My father wants to have it with my mom and she is not agreeing. He said that he will take a girl and will have anal sex with her in front of my mom. What should she do?


A: Anal sex is haraam in Islam. Severe admonitions and warnings have been sounded in the Mubarak Ahaadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for the one who perpetrates such detestable sins. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said “The one who has relations with his wife whilst she is in the state of haidh or has relations with her from the anal passage or he goes to a sorcerer then he has certainly shown gross ingratitude to that which has been revealed upon Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). In another Hadith Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said that the one who has relations with his wife from the anal passage, Allah Ta’ala will not look at him with the sight of mercy.

It is not permissible for the wife to obey the husband in things which have been declared haraam in Shari’ah. If she obeys him, then both will be sinful. Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “It is not permissible for one to obey the creation in matters where one will disobey Allah Ta’ala”.

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