 He Cannot Be Patient When His Wife Has Her Period

لا يستطيع أن يصبر عن زوجته أثناء حيضها

Shaikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid

Translation Reviewer: Abu Adham Osama Omara (Islamhouse.com)

  Question:

    His wife has a long period of menstruation up to seven days before she does ghusl. But he feels this time is too long to wait as his sexual appetite is so high. What must he do or what must she do to solve the problem?

 Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.  

We have already explained in question no. 36722 that a man may be intimate with his wife in all ways apart from intercourse, because when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about intimacy with a menstruating woman, he said, “Do everything except intercourse.” (Narrated by Muslim, 302) 

The husband also has another permissible means of fulfilling his desire, which is masturbation by his wife’s hand. The evidence for that is the general meaning of the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts from illegal sexual acts). Except from their wives or the (women slaves) whom their right hands possess ـ   for (then) they are not blameworthy.” (Al-Ma’aarij: 29-30) See also question No. 826 

And Allaah knows best.
