Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
is oral sex allowed in islam. what if a husband likes or forces his wife to have oral sex
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The Quran and the Sunnah are silent about the concept what is known today as oral sex, whereby one touches the spouses sexual organs with ones mouth. Some scholars have voiced their opinion against touching either of the partners sex organs with the mouth or oral sex. But because nothing is mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah, the scholars have not said it is absolutely forbidden or haraam The most they have said is that one should fear Allah and stay away from this act as it is considered impure, unclean and unhealthy and thus closer to the forbidden than to the lawful.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.267 Narrated by An Numan bin Bashir
The Prophet (saws) said "Both, halaal (lawful) and haraam (forbidden) things are obvious, and in between them are (suspicious) doubtful matters. So whoever forsakes those doubtful things lest he may commit a sin, will definitely avoid what is clearly illegal; and whoever indulges in these (suspicious) doubtful things bravely, is likely to commit what is clearly forbidden.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
