Using condoms

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Is it allowed to use condoms with consent of both (wife and husband).

2. Use of dental dams (a streched thin rubber used to place on female private parts for kissing her private parts to prevent infection) has any concept in islam and can be used?



1. These are all unnatural ways. Most of these things have side effects that could be disastrous to one’s health.

2. That part is not meant for kissing. How can you ever think of these things. Isn’t it disgusting.

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