Question: One of the sisters is asking, saying that
she is a practising young woman who got married six
months ago. (She says) her husband demands she suck
his penis, and she asks if this is permissible or not?
Response: All praise is due to Allaah (alone). There
is no doubt that (the request of) this practise from
the husband of the questioner is a disgusting practise
and obviously disliked. It also undermines the (good)
manners between the husband and wife, and could
possibly be a cause for (each partner) disliking (the
other) and (leading to) separation (divorce).
‘Aa.ishah (radhi-yallaahu 'anhaa) was one of the wives
of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa
sallam), and it has been narrated on her authority
((He (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) did not see this

Note: The basic ruling regarding the wife seeking
pleasure of her husband’s penis is that of
permissibility, however, that which is feared is that
this act may lead to possible oral intake of sperm or
prostatic fluids. The Hanaabilah have indicated the
permissibility of a wife kissing her husband’s penis,
as is mentioned in ((al-Insaaf)) of al-Maardeenee

‘Aqeel and other than him. Also, Asbagh from the
Maalikiyyah has indicated the permissibility of a man
kissing his wife’s vagina as is mentioned in ((Tafseer

Certain cases of mouth cancer appear to be caused by a
virus that can be contracted during oral sex, media
reported, quoting a new Swedish study.
People who contract a high-risk variety of the human
papilloma virus, HPV, during oral sex are more likely
to fall ill with mouth cancer, according to a study
conducted at the Malmo University Faculty of
Odontology in southern Sweden.
"You should avoid having oral sex," dentist and
researcher Kerstin Rosenquist, who headed the study,
told Swedish news agency TT.
HPV is a wart virus that causes many cervical cancers,
including endometrial cancer (in the uterus).
Comparing 132 patients with mouth cancer with a
control group of 320 healthy people, Rosenquist found
that 36 percent of the cancer patients were carriers
of HPV while only one percent of the control group had
The main factors that contribute to mouth cancer, most
commonly contracted by middle aged and older men, are
smoking and drinking alcohol, scientists agree.
"But in recent years the illness has been on the rise
among young individuals and we don't know why. But one
could speculate that this virus (HPV) is one of the
factors," Rosenquist said.
Her findings confirm other international studies in
