In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The only times it is impermissible and unlawful in Shariah for a married couple to enjoy conjugation is:
- During the wifes menstruation periods.
- Menstruation period after child-birth.
- When one is fasting in Ramadan (or any other month).
- When one is in the state of eteqaaf during the last 10 days of Ramadan.
- When in the state of ehram during the pilgrimage to the Sacred House.
Your Question: heard that sex is haram once your wife completed 4 months of her pregnancy. Is it correct or not?
There is absolutely no restriction or limitation in Shariah for a married couple if they wish to enjoy sexual relationship with each other during the full pregnancy period of the wife, even until the moment before the baby is delivered.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
