Can a man and his wife do anything intimate with one another when the wife is on her period?

Answered by

Sheikh `Abd al-Wahhâb al-Turayrî, former professor at al-Imâm University in Riyadh

Any form of sexual enjoyment between the husband and the wife is permitted with the exception of what is explicitly prohibited by the sacred texts.

The prohibited acts are: sex during menstruation, sex during post-natal bleeding, and anal sex.

Allah says: “Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth when or how you will.”

As for during menstruation, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Do everything except intercourse.” This means that the husband and wife can do everything with one another excerpt for actual sexual penetration.

And Allah knows best.
