Yes there are limitations in sexual intercourse in Islam. In fact Islam is very conservative about sex. 1. A man can approach his wife from any direction. Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you, so come to your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth [righteousness] for yourselves. And fear Allah and know that you will meet Him....

Before answering your Questions, I'd like to explain my point of view by answering other questions. Does Islam allow slavery? The short answer is:Yes Islam allows slavery! Note: It is worth pointing out that you do not find any text in the Qur’aan or Sunnah which enjoins taking others as slaves, whereas there are dozens of texts in the Qur’aan and ...

from an Islamic point of view, almost all scholars agree that couple can be fully naked during sex. Also, you have to understand that if you cannot even get naked during sex, then you do not enjoy it fully. And the purpose of sex is to fulfill the sexual desires of each other in every possible way. That's why Allah says in the Quran: "Your wives are as ...

Anything that involves "penetration of head of male penis into female vagina (with or without ejaculation)" would constitute zina requiring Hadd punishment. This has been agreed upon by scholars (of Ahlus sunnah). The things that lead to zina such as touching, kissing, and rubbing the private parts together without penetrating do not come under the ruling ...

According to majority of scholars, If the male organ enters woman even once, then Ghusl is obligatory on both. Ejaculation is not the condition for Ghusl, entering into woman is. Also, If ejaculation happens without penetration, even then ghusl is fard. So in both cases ghusl is fard. So, you must do ghusl before praying, otherwise prayer will not be valid. ...

Is the woman allowed to wear Leather/PVC/latex trousers or catsuits to look sexy for her husband? Yes, she is allowed to wear such cloths. Are a couple allowed to visit a sex shop together? In my opinion (also by some scholars) No. Because in Islam, we are not allowed to see Awra of other men or women. and these sex shops have all sorts of nudity (...

The Quran was written in a certain socio-cultural environment. In that environment and era, slavery was not only common but quite the norm. See Slavery article in Wikipedia for history. In Arabia, before Islam, non-criminal sexual relationships between sexes comprised of three forms: Between husband and wife With slaves Out of wedlock and outside of ...

Sexual fantasies, I would say, are not uncommon for Muslims. The only problem, for men especially, is that sexual fantasies may lead to something more, including masturbation, or even worse, committing zina. That being said however, having sexual fantasies is by no means a sin, as long as the person does not act upon it. Sexual fantasies are among the ...

Mahram is derived from haram, it literally means "forbidden people", i.e. people with whom sex and marriage is forbidden. According to the Quran, sex is only permitted with one's wives and female slaves(1,2): Quran 23:5-6 And they who guard their private parts. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be ...

All Praise to Allah Swt and blessings on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions It was narrated from 'Abdur-Rahman bin Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri from his father that: The Messenger of Allah said: "No woman should look at the nakedness of another woman, and no man should look at the nakedness of another man."(Ibn Majah) And “A man should ...

— An-Nisa 43 — O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body].

If shaitan cast the image in your imagination and ...

No it is not. There are tons of quranic verses and hadith that describe about the ethical behaviour and clearly state that immodesty/unabashedness is a big sin and one must control not to do it. To give a small but a very heavy reference is Surah An-Nur 30,31 Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is ...

May God Bless you, Dan. I think that a common theme in all of your questions is "why does God..." or "why is God..." But I believe that we shouldn't try to look at things from God's perspective; this is because God is infinite and we are finite. To try to look at things from God's perspective is to ask your brain to do what it can't and it also inherently ...

The answer lies in the Qur'an: Translation: It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek ...

The mentioned verse is telling: ...knows what is in the wombs...(Quran 31:34) Now, the word "what" doesn't specifically mean "what the gender is", but it has a general and broader meaning. It refers to Allah knowledge of the future and the destiny of the child, along with the bestowed goods, and other bads that will happen to the child. (Arabic Source) ...

If a husband and wife can be naked, and have sex, with each other [Surah al-Muminun 23:5-6], then surely they can do other things together? The verses of Hijab of a woman do not apply in front of her husband. There is no ayah or sahih hadith that forbids a woman to wear provocative clothing for her husband. In fact, she will probably be rewarded, Allaho ...

The believing men and women whom Allah Subhanah has blessed to be bonded in the sacred institution of marriage, have certain rights towards each other in their marriage. And one of the biggest rights of marriage is that the couple may enjoy conjugal relations with each other to their heart's desire. Unless the wife has a legal and valid Shariah reason for ...

1. You cannot afford to ignore the fact that the married individual is more comfortable and is in a position to better perform his religious duties and obligations as he enjoys peace of mind and a tranquil heart. He is considered to have covered half of the way whereas an unmarried person struggles to safeguard his faith and himself against evil. 2. There ...

The actual status I'm quoting here sunni references! You will still find a lot of Fatwas where some scholars say that a woman who rejects to have intercourse with her husband is "nashiz ناشز" and can be punished and that she should obey if her husband wants to have intercourse. For example here (in Arabic) an extreme fatwa where the scholar seems to allow ...

Lets start with touching, as that sounds like the most innocent of actions you've described in your question: It is haraam for a man to touch the hand of a girl who is not his mahram, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than for him to ...

Marriage without both man's and woman's consent is void. The woman and the man should be willing to enter into a matrimonial alliance. If, however, the woman ostensibly displays hesitation while giving her consent, but it is known that in her heart, she is agreeable to the marriage, the marriage is in order. However, if any of them were forced into ...

No. Allah does not like these sort of people. He has to repent and never do this again before its too late. Read the story of Loot, “And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: ‘Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Aalameen (mankind and jinn)? Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. ...

If you think logically, all the prohibitions and responsibilities are for a purpose. To make both a human and a society better. Now, I will try to explain your list, but for more, you should do some research about them. You can search like "what is the logic behind this x rule?". Sex before marriage: The family is the key cell of a good society. Marriage ...

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “O young men, whoever among you can afford to, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and in guarding one’s chastity. Whoever cannot afford it, then let him fast, for it will be a shield for him.” This is addressed to young men, but it also includes young women. Another version which says ...

There is this related question "In Islam, are there limits on sex between a married couple?" Simple difference, sex is allowed from any direction and even from behind(Can be rear position), but only vaginal intercourse. But, sex is not allowed from any direction when it is anal intercourse.
