Title: Are partners allowed to lick each other’s private parts?

Question

Is it permissable in Islam while having  sexual intercourse with my partner are we allowed to lick each others private parts! if no please explain

Answer

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Human being by nature were created with strong carnal desires. These desires should be fulfilled in a dignified manner.   

Shariah strongly emphasizes on shame and modesty. Fulfilling sexual desires according to Shariah, is rewarded by Almighty Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala. One may also be gifted with legitimate children from this action.

One should practice deeds that will gain the pleasure of Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala. Good deeds leads  you to Jannah and obscenity leads you away from Jannah.   

Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi wa Salam says to go ahead and do as you please if you do not have any shame.[1] 

When sexually aroused the body discharges impure fluid. There is a strong possibility that this impure fluid will enter the mouth of your partner if oral sex is practiced. This is amongst the reasons why  the  Fuqaha have ruled that oral sex is Makruh Tahrimi (reprehensible).

The mouth is a part of the body which is used for the recitation of the Quran and zikrullah and to hymn the praises of Almighty Allah Subhana Wa Ta’Ala. It is disliked that it should be used to consume any form of impurity. 

Oral sex is prohibited under all circumstances and in any form, whether it is with the back or the front private parts.

 Darul Iftaa Buiding Project

 

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

 

 

We make Du’aa you are well. The Darul Iftaa was established in the year 2011. The fundamental objective of the Darul Iftaa is to train Ulama from various parts of the world to become Muftis. In this world of scientific calculations and technological advancements, economic confusion and political disarray, a Mufti is trained to understand and analyze current situations and provide leadership for the Ummah. There is a vacuum  of competent Muftis in various parts of the world. The Ummah lacks leadership. There are currently twelve students who are studying at the Darul Iftaa. They are from United States of America, United Kingdom, Mozambique, Jamaica, Zambia, Canada and South Africa. There are many Ulama from many parts of the world who have applied to study the Iftaa course. They could not be accommodated due to lack of adequate facilities. The Darul Iftaa has therefore embarked on an expansion project.

The Darul Iftaa requests your generous contributions for the expansion project. The building project has already begun and is expected to be completed within the next three months. This is indeed a great opportunity for you to earn Sawab e Jariyah in the Aakhirah. This is a tree with many branches bearing sweet fruits for your Aakhirah. Insha’Allah. The Darul Iftaa banking details are as follows:

Bank:              FNB Bank
Account#:     62347912778
Branch:           221126
 

(The Darul Iftaa is registered and has the following PBO exemption number: 930039227 – 3 May 2012)

JazakAllah.

Mufti Ebrahim Desai
