    Is oral sex forbidden is Islam?

    I recently got married and my wife is very strict on islamic laws which is good because that makes me stay focused in practising and obeying the commandment of Allah s.w.t. Can anyone out there can help me figure out if oral sex is haram or its allowed and if it is there any support about it in the hadith or Quran ?

    Thanks for your concern and time . Jaza Kalla Khair

    There is a difference in scholarly opinion on this, some say its haram, others say it's makrooh (disliked) and warn of the dangers of getting certian fluids in the mouth, which are unclean once they leave the body (e.g. semen) - getting these in the mouth deliberately or through negligence would be haram!

    there is no support for oral sex in the scriptures, i.e. nothing to say that it is halal or beneficial. However on worldly matters everything is considered halal until proven haram, which is why some scholars stop short of declaring it haram (provided no unclean fluids enter the mouth!).

    I expect that others on the forum will post fatwas on this matter, probably both fatwas saying its haram and ones saying it's makhrooh. If not you can look up the subject on fatwa sites like Islamqa

    Regarding things that are makrooh, this is not a green light for Muslims to go and do these things. You get rewards for avoiding doing them. Some things that are makrooh, like divorce, are only allowed as a last resort when all other attempts to resolve a situation have failed. So muslims should never think "It's just makrooh and not haram, so I can do it as I see fit" because it is not like that!!!

      How can they make it haraam when there's not mention of it? I'm sure it's not a new thing and was around at the time of the prophet :saw: so if it was haraam why would he :saw: not have forbidden it like the other two haraam sexual acts?

        If its not mentioned its haram or not does not make it halal. There are things that are clearly haram and clearly halal. everything else is in the middle. SO i think the scholars explanation is needed. Although isnt this a part of marriage? the spouses fulfilling their desire? if the necessary precautions are taken?

              Huh yes it does, otherwise it would have been mentioned as haraam there's no way it would have just been left out?

              There are things that are clearly haram and clearly halal. everything else is in the middle.
              How can it be in the middle? It is either haraam or halal, how can something be neither? If it's not haraam then it's halal and if it's not halal then it's haraam. It has to be one or the other and it's not upto scholars to go making something haraam which has not been made haraam by Allah or the prophet :saw:

                it comes in the "doubtful" area.

                the Prophet (peace be on him): The halal is clear and the haram is clear. Between the two there are doubtful matters concerning which people do not know whether they are halal or haram. One who avoids them in order to safeguard his religion and his honor is safe, while if someone engages in a part of them he may be doing something haram, like one who grazes his animals near the hima (the grounds reserved for animals belonging to the King which are out of bounds for others' animals); it is thus quite likely that some of his animals will stray into it. Truly, every king has a hima, and the hima of Allah is what He has prohibited. (Reported by al-Bukhari' Muslim, and others; the narration is taken from al Tirmidhi.)

                comnig to the topic. The scholars say its makruh and some say its haram.

                  On the authority of Abu Muhammad al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abi Taib, the grandson of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, and who is dearest to him, radiyallahu ëanhuma, who said: ìI committed to memory from the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, (the following words):

                  ìLeave that about which you are in doubt for that about which you are in no doubt.î

                  [Al-Tirmidhi and al-Nasaíi related it, and al-Tirmidhi said: It is a good and genuine Hadith]

                      Re: Is oral sex forbidden is Islam?

                      Asalamualaykum warahmatulah,

                      Inregards to this topic, there is no Hadeeth which prohibits these actions. As there is no Daleel to support the claim of these actions being Haram or Makruh, then we return Back to the Asal(original foundation ruling) Which is everything is Halal for us to do in worldly affairs until proven Haram (The opposite stance applies for acts of worship). Therefore the origin is that it is Halal.

                      Now we must look for daleel to show it is Haram.
                      Authentic Clear Cut hadeeth? - There is none.

                      Even for there to be doubt in a subject there must be a reason for the doubt to be there, there is no Doubt in this matter. We cannot apply our disliking of something to change a ruling upon an action. I.e just because one may not like a thing, it is not from us to make it Haram or Makruh.

                      The reason for the scholars to say it is Makruh, is because of the release of semen.(reasoning by Shayke Yusuf al Qardawi) The difference in regards to semen being pure or not plays apart in this. However if one takes it to be pure,(which seems to have the stronger daleel), that the act can no longer be Makruh. (and As long as the semen does not enter the mouth, if the opinion is taken that it is impure(even though this is not the stronger opinion on the substance) the action can not be makruh.

                      As Allah swt says in the Quran;
                      And who guard their modesty, save from their wives or the slaves, that I heir right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy, but Who so craveth beyond that, such are transgressors.” (Al-Mu'minun: 5-7)”

                      The Only acts which are Haram and not allowed to be practised is Anal and intercourse when the female is on her period. For all other prohibitions then Daleel is needed, and there is none.

                      However its good remember that, the only reason people ask about these things is because they live among the Kuffar and have seen things which they should not have seen. (As was a similar answer given when Shayke Bin Baaz was asked).

                      On this same note: It is not obligatory to practise this act and if one feels a dislike towards it, it’s not obligatory to do it etc. Both the husband and the wife should however be understanding towards each other.

                      And Allah swt knows best.

                        Re: Is oral sex forbidden is Islam?

                        At the outset, before stating the rulings of Fuqahaa on oral sex, it is important to mention the emphasis Shari’ah has laid down on shame and modesty. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said in Hadith:

                        إن مما أدرك الناس من كلام النبوة ، إذا لم تستحى فافعل ما شئت

                        "Indeed, surely people will come to know the words of prophethood. If you do not have shame, then do as you wish." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/183, Dar Al-Fikr)

                        الحياء من الإيمان والإيمان فى الجنة والبذاء من الجفاء والجفاء فى النار

                        "Modesty is from Iman, and Iman leads you to Paradise. Shamelessness is from futile things, and futile things lead you to the fire of Hell.” (Sunan Al-Tirmidhi, 2/21, HM Saeed)

                        In light of the abovementioned, Fuqahaa have ruled oral sex to be makruh tahreemi (an abominable act close to haraam) due to the shame and immodesty in the act and the strong possibility of najis (impure) fluids entering the mouth. Even if precaution is taken in this regard, it is a shameful act to use the mouth in such places, as it is the same mouth used to recite Quran and to make zikr of Allah Ta’ala. This ruling applies to the performance of oral sex by the wife to the husband and vice-versa.

                        It is unfortunate to see the steep decline of modesty and the increase of shame in our time compared to the pure era of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and the Sahaba (RadiyAllahu Anhum). There was so much modesty in their time that Sayyidina A’isha (RadiyAllahu Anha) reported that she never saw the private parts of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and he never saw hers. (Ibn Majah, Ahmed)

                        May Allah Ta’ala give us all the guidance to follow their example. Aameen.

                        Furthermore, it is incorrect to state that there is no prohibition of oral sex in classified texts of the Fuqahaa. Consider the following two texts:

                        في النوازل إذا أدخل الرجل ذكره في فم امرأته قد قيل يكره

                        (Al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya, 5/372, Rashidiyya)



                        إذا أدخل الرجل ذكره فم أمرأته فقد قيل: يكره؛ لأنه موضع قراءة القرآن، فلا يليق به إدخال الذكر فيه، وقد قيل بخلافه.

                        (Al-Muhit al-Burhani, 8/134, Idaratul Quran)

                        (Fatawa Rahimiyyah, 10/178, Darul Isha’at)

                        And Allah knows best

                        Wassalam u Alaikum

                          Slmz

                          I dont want to sound rude or cause offense and this is my own opinion.

                          Are muslims steeping to such low levels these days that they have to resort to such disgusting acts?

                          Why would any women want to place a p*nis in her mouth knowing what comes out of that appendage?

                          On the same token, no man should consider touching a woman's private parts with his mouth either.

                          As a woman, I find in rather disturbing when men ask these kinds of questions on forums or are even thinking about oral sex.

                          Isnt foreplay and various sexual positions enough to keep a man satisfied that he needs his wife to do further. Plus there are so many other things a person can do to make sex more exciting and still keep it modest and halal.

                          A man's private parts arent the most attractive things to look at, let alone putting them into one's mouth.

                          This act seems to becoming the norm and some poor wife out there will be asked to do something which she may not want to (not all husbands will take into account if the wife likes to this kinda stuff or not - they would EXPECT her to do it).

                          And also, if a wife doesnt want to do it, does that mean the husband will feel she is not keeping him sexually satisfied, if he already has it in mind that that is the only way to make his fully sexually satsifed. Does that mean he will then look for another wife or more drastic case, divorce her?

                          Sorry for the rant/and going slightly off topic but these points are related somewhat as society needs to look at the wider implications.

                          (no wonder "some brothers" (not majority) prefer reverts, as they would be more "adventurous" in bed).....sorry did you all think it was about white skin/light eyes or being able to mould them.....no it is also about the sex too).

                          Its time muslims stopped these vulgar acts. We are not animals.

                            brother, wouldn't have been better if you sought to marry a sister that is not so religiously committed? that way, you can get to do any thing without shame or guilt. I weep for the sisters who have to go through avoidable fitnah in their marriages. This topic has been discussed several times and we always have brothers coming and saying its not haraam because some scholars say so. we can come here because of the anonymity of internet and discuss these things and hide behind "there is no shame in the religion" even in ramadhaan? Laa hawla walaa kuwwata illa billah.
