Can a man drink his wife’s breast milk through a bottle if he believes it might help cure his cancer? 



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




No, a man cannot drink his wife’s breast milk, even if he believes it could help cure his cancer.


As is written in Raddul Mukhtar:

لا يجوز الانتفاع به للتّداوي

“It is not permissible to benefit from it for medicinal purposes” (Raddul Mukhtar, Vol 9, Pg 38)



Only Allah knows best.
