Dear Scholars & Muftis,
I really appreciate your work ‘jizakumullah’, My question is………one of my firend who is newly muslim, he asked me about the so many confusing answers about oral sex, “Islam online” and so many other sites says that “ORAL SEX IS NOT HARAM, And Permissible”, and here we were reading the other day that its not “ALLOWED”, why so many confusions? forgive me but its not giving him a good expression about Islam. i dont know why you people are making this matter so complicated atleast you people can Release on “FINAL FATWA” if its permissible or not, why do you all confuse us. and personally i dont like doing oral sex with my wife, but there are so many questions in my mind, please help us understand ISLAM.
There is nothing in the Shari’ah (i.e. Islamic Law) that prohibits oral sex between a husband and a wife. The problem you may be running into seems to be making up your own mind in the face of differences of opinion. This is a result of understanding. However, in saying that I can assure you that most scholars do not prohibit sex, at least not the prominent ones. There is no “Final Fatwa” (i.e. religious opinion) because in Islam there is always room for further understanding and growing in religious knowledge. Also, there is no hierarchical clergy that decides what is allowable and what is prohibited. The final word is that of God and it is up to us to comprehend these teachings and interpret them in truth.
Finally, I am not sure where you found the information that it is not allowed but I can assure you that it was not on this website. The subject is not complicated, sometimes it is how one comprehends it. Clearly no one may forbid oral sex as it is not forbidden in the Shari’ah.
I hope I have clarified the issue.
God knows best.
