Intimacy during haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is there any duration during the menses which the husband has to refrain from intercourse or he has to refrain from intercourse until the last streak of blood stops, which can be upto 2 weeks since the menses started?


A: The maximum period of haidh is 10 days. The husband cannot enjoy complete intimacy during the time of haidh. He may enjoy everything but complete intimacy. Complete intimacy refers to anything to do with the area between the navel to below the knee.

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