Egyptian Cleric Mohammad Al-Zoghbi: It is Okay for a Woman to Breastfeed Her Husband during Foreplay

During a December 24 show on Al-Rahma TV (Egypt), Egyptian cleric Muhammad Al-Zoghbi said that despite what some "fossilized [Muslim] fanatics" say, a woman does not become forbidden to her husband if he swallows some of her breast milk during foreplay. Al-Zoghbi explained that a husband may enjoy his wife however he pleases, except for anal penetration and sex during menstruation or after giving birth, which are forbidden by Allah. He added: "Stop making life hard on people! Let us all be moderate and fair."

Following are excerpts:

 

Mohammad Al-Zoghbi: Is it permissible for a husband to be breastfed by his wife? Let's say that a husband suckles on his wife, during foreplay… Of course, there is no shame in talking about these things. Let's say that he swallows some milk and it gets into his stomach… Does his wife become forbidden to him, like his mother? Some fossilized fanatics tend to say so, but this is nonsense, of course. When we deal with this kind of question, the rule is that the husband may enjoy his wife however he pleases. The only things that are forbidden are those prohibited by Allah: anal penetration and sex during menstruation or after giving birth. Apart from those things, everything is permitted by Allah.

So if someone happens to be breastfed by his wife, it is permissible, and his wife does not become forbidden to him. Stop making life hard on people! Let us all be moderate and fair.
