Couples try different practices and positions to get the most pleasure while having sex. However, there are certain controversial western practices that Muslim of this generation adopted. Oral sex is one of those, and most Muslims don’t even know ruling of it, and why is oral sex haram in Islam.
Oral sex is an intimate action that has to do with a mouth and a private part. Usually, when a male or female uses his or her mouth to stimulate his or her partner’s private part.
Textually, there is nothing mentioned in the Quran and hadith directly regarding oral sex. But, according to the prominent scholars of these days, this practice is makrooh – advisable not to do. There are also other scholars who view this practice as haram.
This article will tell you about why this practice is viewed as makrooh, and why some consider it as haram, and what is the wisdom behind all this. Whether you are already married or looking for a spouse, you should have a clear understanding about this matter.
Is Oral Sex Haram in Islam?
When it comes to oral sex, there are two aspects of this issue – moral aspect and religious aspect.
1. Moral Aspect
From moral aspect point of view, this sexual act we notice in animals. They put their mouths on each other’s private parts.
Apart from this point of view, this certain act is a shameful one. We use our mouth to recite and make dhikr of Allah. How come someone thinks about using the mouth for such filthy and dirty stuff!
According to several hadith, the Prophet taught his companions not to touch their private parts with the right hand.
Now think about this, if touching the private part using left hand is discouraged in Islam, what would be the stance of Islam putting the private part in the mouth.
This practice was not among Muslims in early days. Through western media and pornography, people became familiar with it, and they adopted this practice.
We can adopt something from other cultures only if that thing does not violate any aspect of the existing culture or modesty.
2. Religious Aspect
Before going to what scholars have to say regarding the oral sex issue, let’s talk about some practice aspects of this practice, and see if it does any good or bad to an individuals religion.
If a wife puts her husband’s penis in her mouth, after a short time, there will be pre-cum secretion from the penis. Pre-cum is nazas, impure. So, there is a high chance for the wife to swallow this crystal liquid. And if it goes in her stomach, she eats something haram.
The similar thing can happen with the semen. But, even if the husband does not want his wife to swallow his semen, still there will be some impurity coming from the penis. Pre-cum and semen can mix together, and enter into her stomach.
Forcing the wife to have oral sex, will eventually lead to force her to eat something haram. And only the husband will be responsible for this. However, if his wife does it willingly, she will also have to take responsibility for this.
Now, talking about putting the husband’s mouth on vagina, almost a similar scenario can happen. Secretion from the famine part, meaning vagina, is also impure. So, the husband may swallow it out of excitement or unwillingly.
So, according to Indo/Pak scholars and their fatwa books, taking the filth whether it be pre-cum or semen, in the mouth is haram, as these liquids are impure. From this point of view, it is clear why is oral a sin in Islam.
However, if someone indicates oral sex as kissing each other’s private parts, and avoid areas where fluid comes from, it is not something haram. But, still, it would be makrooh, disliked.
Is Oral Sex Unhealthy?

Pleasing Each Other Through Foreplays
There are other things husband and wife can perform as foreplay. Even though masturbation is haram for both male and female. But, the husband can perform masturbation, and similarly the wife can masturbate her husband if one or both of them are unsatisfied after intercourse.
Oral Sex on Wife
The same ruling is applicable for a husband who gives oral sex/initmate to his wife. When the chances for discharge are higher, it is haram without a doubt.
But, kissing and doing other stuff on that particular area that has to do with the husband’s mouth, are viewed as makrooh in shariah.
Do not forget, this is not the only way to please your wife. As a husband, you can use your fingers to please her if you find her unsatisfied after having a vaginal penetration.
As for foreplay goes, touching and doing foreplay on other areas should be more than enough for you to make her interested in having sex.
Hope you got the clear picture regarding why oral sex is haram in Islam and why it is disliked even with its less unhealthy and dirty form. Even if both the husband and wife engage in this practice, they should try not to do it further. It is harmful for one’s religion as well as from a health perspective.
