Question

 

Is cunnilingus / oral sex/kissing licking of vagina of the wife is permeable in Islam,  I can perform it without fearing Allah and without worrying about committing a sin?

 

 

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

 

Answer 

 

If the “oral sex” includes the penis being inserted in the wife’s mouth to the extent that she swallows the filth, whether this filth is semen (Mani) or pre-ejaculatory fluid (Madhi), or the man takes the filth of the woman in his mouth, then this will not be permissible. (Fatawa Rahimiyah p.270 v.6 & Fatawa Hindiyya p.372 v.5)

 

However, if the act consists of the wife kissing her husband’s penis and the husband kisses her genitals and they avoid any areas where there is pre-ejaculatory fluid, then there is a difference of opinion. Some scholars say that it will be permissible (Mubah), although disliked whilst others say it will still remain Makruh (disliked). (See Fatawa Rahimiyah p.406 v.9)

 

If semen (mani) is discharged after having oral sex, ghusl will become obligatory.  (Raddul Muhtar p.300 v.1)
