Voluntary sucking of wife milk.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Reference to your answer to Question No.2281)Husband sucking breast u have given the below text in ur reply.

The scholars of all the major schools of thought are absolutely unanimous that if the husband accidentally or voluntarily tastes the milk of his wife,  it has absolutely no bearing on the validity of their Nikaah. Drinking of a woman's milk forms foster-relations only when an infant sucks the breast of a woman in his infancy. u have given that accidently or voluntarily sucks or tastes the milk of wife , how can it be.


A married person knows when he sucks the breast of wife hard the milk will come out provided she is feeding the baby.

so ur answer intentionally or intentionaly a husband can taste the milk.

accidently we can agree, volantarily i doubt.

what i heard was accidently then he once he knew its milk comming out then he has to stop.

when u tell voluntarily means he can taste knowlingly.i doubt on ur answer

please clarify.

Voluntary sucking of wife milk

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother in Islam, it is only obvious and only natural that no adult person would wish to fulfill his appetite by drinking the milk of his wifes breast.but that is obviously not the issue! The issue is whether if a husband happens to taste, intentionally or unintentionally, the milk from his wifes breast.would it effect their relationship or the validity of their marriageand the answer is NO, because in light of the guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) foster relationships are only formed when sucking takes place during the age of infancy.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.815 Narrated by Aisha

Once the Prophet (saws) came to me while a man was in my house. He (saws) said, "O 'Aisha! Who is this (man)?" I replied, "My foster brother." He (saws) said, "O 'Aisha! Be sure about your foster brothers, as fostership is only valid if it takes place in the suckling period (before two years of age)."


Your Question: what i heard was accidently then he once he knew its milk comming out then he has to stop.

Respected brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge there is no prohibition in either the Glorious Quran or the authentic or established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) whereby a husband is specifically forbidden to taste of the milk from his wifes breast.


What one merely hears of a prohibition is not important.what is of paramount importance and significance is that the prohibition for the act must, and we reiterate, must be found in either the Quran or the authentic Sunnah.and to the best of our knowledge, there is no such specific prohibition in the Quran or the Sunnah whereby a husband is commanded to stop once he knows that the milk is coming out!


If you could kindly provide us the reference of the narration from the authentic Sunnah where this prohibition is specifically mentioned, we would be extremely grateful.


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,
