Wife drink her own milk

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3173 Narrated by Umm Salamah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The only suckling which makes marriage unlawful is that which is taken from the breast and enters the bowels, and is taken before the time of weaning."


Al-Muwatta Hadith 30.11

Yahya related from Malik that Yahya ibn Said said that he heard Said ibn al-Musayyab say, "Suckling is only while the child is in the cradle. If not, it does not cause flesh and blood relations."


Yahya said that he had heard Malik say, "Suckling, however little or much when it is in the first two years, makes haram. As for what is after the first two years, little or much, it does not make anything haram. It is like food."


Al-Muwatta Hadith Hadith 30.14

Yahya related from Malik from Yahya ibn Said that Abdullah ibn Masud said, "There is only kinship by suckling in the first two years."


The noble companions of the Prophet (saws) and the early generation of scholars in Islam were unanimous in their opinion that if the husband accidentally or voluntarily tastes the milk of his wife, or if the wife herself happens to accidentally taste her own milk, there is no harm, and it has absolutely no bearing on the validity of their Nikaah. Drinking of a woman’s milk forms foster-relations only when an infant sucks the breast of a woman in its age of weaning, which in Shairah is upto two years.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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 and well wisher in Islam,
