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.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 223: Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will.
Abu Dhar al-Ghafari reported: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: there is a reward for you [even] in sex with your wife." The companions asked: O Messenger of Allah (saws) is there a reward if one satisfies his passion?" He (saws) said: "Do you know that if he satisfies it unlawfully he has taken a sin upon himself? Likewise, if he satisfies it lawfully, he is rewarded."

Islam has allowed the husband and the wife in marriage every possible liberty to enjoy conjugal relations with each other, except three:
It is strictly prohibited to have sexual intercourse with ones wife during her period of menstruation.
It is strictly prohibited to enter the woman through her anus.
Although there is no specific prohibition mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah, the majority of the scholars in Islam have voiced their opinion against oral sex, whereby one touches the others private organs with their mouth.
Other than the above three restrictions, one may enjoy conjugal relations with ones wife any place, any time, and any how their hearts desire.
Q-1: What are the positions and ways of having sex are
legal in islam?
Q-4: I came to know some positions are not accepted in our islam, what are they?
My beloved brother, provided the above listed three conditions are not violated, the husband and the wife can enjoy their conjugal relations with each other in any position they wishstanding, sitting, lying down, on the sides, on one leg, in the air.any possible position they can imagine or desire.there is absolutely no restriction, nor prohibition regarding positions and ways of intercourse between a husband and a wife in their sacred union of marriage.
Q-2. Why should i should not touch my partner in periods?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 222: They ask thee concerning women's courses. Say: They are a hurt and a pollution; so keep away from women in their courses and do not approach them (intercourse) until they are clean. But when they have purified themselves ye may approach them in any manner time or place ordained for you by Allah. For Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean.
Allah Subhanah has Commanded the believers to abstain from having the actual act of intercourse with their wives while they are in the state of menses or periods.
There is absolutely no prohibition in the husband touching their wife during her condition of menses; the only place prohibited for the husband to touch or approach is the sexual organ of his wifeother than this one organ, there is absolutely no harm or prohibition in touching, playing or enjoying their relations with their wives.
Q-3: If i can Touch her, and i can do anything except INTER COURSE?
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Do everything (during the womans menstruation) except intercourse."
Related by Muslim, Tirmidhi, and Abu Dawood.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) permitted the believers to do everything except the actual act of sexual intercourse with their wives while they are in their state of menses.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
