Can husband put his fingers in his wife’s anus?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


Anal Sex is something which is haram and unlawful in Islam. It is narrated by Saaiduna Ibn Abbas Radiallahu Anhu that the Prophet of Allah Sallahu Alahi Wasalam has said:

“Allah does not look at a man who comes to a man or to a woman through its back.”

(Sunan Tirmizi p.220 v.1)

It is permissible for the husband to touch the surrounding and outside area of the anus even by rubbing his penis in between his wife’s buttocks as long as there is no penetration.  It should be borne in mind that this will only be permissible if one is certain of avoiding penetration, otherwise abstaining from that area will be necessary. (Islamic Guide to Sexual Relations, Mufti Ibn Adam Al Kawthari, p.96)

With regards to your question, the same way penetration in the anus is unlawful; similarly, sticking your finger into your wife’s anus is also impermissible.

Only Allah Knows Best
