Q 1: What is the ruling on
having anal sex without penetration?
One of the Muslim brothers says that only penetration is Haram (prohibited), (Part No. 19; Page No. 289) taking as supporting evidence the following Hadith in which the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
“Accursed is the one who has sexual intercourse with his wife through the anus.”
May Allah grant you the best reward.
The husband may enjoy intimacy with his wife in whatever way he wishes, except for having anal intercourse and intercourse during her menstrual or postpartum period. He may enjoy his wife in whatever way he wants through the vagina for Allah (Exalted be He) says:
Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth, when or how you will
However, it is Haram to have anal intercourse because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"Allah is not shy to tell you the truth: Do not have intercourse with your wives in the anus."
It was also related by
on the authority of
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“Allah will not look at a man who has sexual intercourse with his wife through her anus.”
The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said:
"He who has sexual intercourse with his wife through her anus is accursed."
Ibn Taymiyyah said that having anal intercourse is Haram according to the Qur'an, Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet), and Jumhur (dominant majority of scholars) of the Salaf (righteous predecessors) and the Khalaf (successors). In fact, it is known as “lesser sodomy”. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
