Sexual techniques[ edit ] One of the areas of Islamic sexual jurisprudence in which there are not many restrictions is the discussion of sexual techniques. Almost all of what is practiced under Islamic law concerning sexual techniques and the act of sexual intercourse come from hadith, which are not restrictive in nature. The main tendency within these hadith are saying for Muslims to follow in the bedroom, saying which "clearly show that the husband and the wife should feel completely free when they are engaged in mutual stimulation which is known as foreplay.
These sayings recommend foreplay and put no real restrictions on the type of techniques used during foreplay or during intercourse. Allah says in the Qur'an: Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus , when or how you will, and send good deeds, or ask Allah to bestow upon you pious offspring for your own selves beforehand.
And fear Allah, and know that you are to meet Him in the Hereafter , and give good tidings to the believers O Muhammad. The semen lodged in the womb from which offspring comes is likened to the seeds that are planted in the ground, bringing vegetation. Both of them are substances from which something else is produced. All Muslim jurists agree that anal sex is haram prohibited , based on the hadith of Muhammad: Do not have anal sex with women. Do not have sex with your wives in the anus.
He replied, "Last night I turned my wife over," meaning that he had had vaginal intercourse with her from the back. The Prophet did not say anything to him until the verse cited above was revealed. Then he told him, "[Make love with your wife] from the front or the back, but avoid the anus and intercourse during menstruation.
The husband is obliged to treat his wife in a kind and reasonable manner. Part of that kind and reasonable treatment is intercourse, which he has to do. The majority of scholars set the time limit beyond which it is not permissible for the husband to forego intercourse at four months, but according to some scholars, the view is that there is no time limit.
If she refuses with no excuse, then she is cursed. But it is not permissible for a husband to force his wife to do more than she is able to bear of intercourse. If she has an excuse such as being sick or unable to bear it, then she is not sinning if she refuses to have intercourse.
Zina Just as Islamic law fosters sexual actions within a marriage or lawful concubinage with wholly owned female slaves, there is also judicial opinion concerning sexual relations outside of these institutions. These laws, however, observe much stricter restrictions.
Additionally, these laws have textual confirmation from the Qur'an. Fornicatoress and fornicator flog each one of them one hundred lashes; and do not take pity on them in the application of God's law if you believe in God and last day; and their punishment should be witnesses by a party of believers. Fornicator does not marry except a fornicatoress or polytheist women; and fornicatoress no one marry her except fornicator or polytheist man;and it is prohibited to believers.
And those who accuse chaste women and then never bring four witness flog them eighty lashes; and do not accept their testimony for ever; they themselves are disobedient. Except those who repent after this and become good then God is forgiving and merciful. And those who accuse their wives and do not have witness except themselves then witness of each of them are four witnesses by God that he is of truthfuls. And fifth that curse of God be on him if he is of lier.
And it can save her from punishment that she witnesses by God four times that he is of liers. And fifth time that wrath of God be on her if he is of truthfuls. According to Hadith, married male and female fornicators are to be stoned to death. Malik ibn Anas cites a report in which "Umar b. Muhammad specifically restricts the injunction "to segregate the women" and "not go near them" in 2: And whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allah is Forgiving, Merciful..
If any does this then he shall be stoned to death. It was practiced by some Arabs during the 6th century. In the 7th century, Muhammad declared that prostitution is forbidden on all grounds. Jabir reported that 'Abdullah b. Salul used to say to his slave-girl: Go and fetch something for us by committing prostitution. It was in this connection that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this verse: There is no prostitution in Islam. If anyone practised prostitution in pre-Islamic times, the child will be attributed to the master of the slave-woman.
He who claims his child without a valid marriage or ownership will neither inherit nor be inherited. One type was similar to that of the present day i. The second type was that a man would say to his wife after she had become clean from her period. When her pregnancy became evident, he husband would sleep with her if he wished. Her husband did so i.
Such marriage was called as Al-Istibda'. Another type of marriage was that a group of less than ten men would assemble and enter upon a woman, and all of them would have sexual relation with her. If she became pregnant and delivered a child and some days had passed after delivery, she would sent for all of them and none of them would refuse to come, and when they all gathered before her, she would say to them, "You all know what you have done, and now I have given birth to a child.
So, it is your child so-and-so! The fourth type of marriage was that many people would enter upon a lady and she would never refuse anyone who came to her. Those were the prostitutes who used to fix flags at their doors as sign, and he who would wished, could have sexual intercourse with them. If anyone of them got pregnant and delivered a child, then all those men would be gathered for her and they would call the Qa'if persons skilled in recognizing the likeness of a child to his father to them and would let the child follow the man whom they recognized as his father and she would let him adhere to him and be called his son.
The man would not refuse all that. But when Muhammad was sent with the Truth, he abolished all the types of marriages observed in pre-Islamic period of Ignorance except the type of marriage the people recognize today.
