Q: What is the ruling regarding the husband drinking his wife’s breast milk?


A: It is not permissible for the husband to drink his wife’s breast milk. If a husband drank his wife’s breast milk, he should make tawba and in future refrain from this. However, his nikaah with his wife will not break.
