Wife suffering from a vaginal problem

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My wife is having some serious problems with her vaginal path. We had done a lot of treatments but it doesn’t work. I didn’t have sex with her since 18 months. I don’t want to do zina and I don’t want to leave her. Please tell me what should I do? Can Islam allow me to do anal sex with my wife if she agrees to do this?


A: Anal sex is not permissible. Why don’t you get a second wife.

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