Husband and wife watching haraam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is that can a husband and wife watch sexual content together if it’s the only way they can have sex because one of them got low desire while other one got very strong desire. If he can’t get it from his partner he might commit zina. Remember he lives in the country where he can get it in return of money. The big problem is he can’t divorce the partner and get married to another because of family problems and his partner is not ready to go to doctors so he is kind of stuck. The only way is sexual content is solving his problem and if he can’t do it, can he watch it and masturbate to prevent himself committing gunnah.


A: No, it is haraam.

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