Drinking the wife's breast milk

Q: I am a twenty-one year old man. I got married a year ago and a while after my marriage I sucked my wife's breasts during sexual intercourse with her. I did this several times, but I did not think about what it may mean from a religious point of view. I would be grateful if you would give me the ruling on this question, given that my wife gave birth to (Part No. 18; Page No. 397) a daughter. I no longer suck my wife's breasts, yet I used to do so before the birth of my daughter. I hope you will provide me with the ruling on this question, as well as the suitable solution to this problem. What should I do now, as my wife and I love one another very much?

A: There is no blame on you regarding sucking your wife's breasts during foreplay or sexual intercourse. Moreover, such practice has no effect on your marital life. Rather, you are not required to do anything in repentance from such act as it is basically lawful. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
