Can Husband Drink Milk of Wife in Islam?
If you are planning to marry a Muslim, you may wonder, “Can a husband drink his wife’s milk?” If your child is under the age of two, this is not prohibited. However, it is forbidden to drink your wife’s milk if she is already pregnant. You should know that this will not create a mahram relationship, nor is it considered haraam. Moreover, you cannot drink your wife’s milk during the times when she is menstruating.
Taking or drinking a holy thing in Islam is permissible
In Islam, taking or drinking a holy thing is considered permissible as long as it is performed in the correct manner. During prayer, Muslims lay on their backs with their right foot on top of their left. Before eating, they wash their hands and put salt on their food. They should also wash their fruits before eating them. They must also not stare at other people or blow on their food.
One of the main rules of Islam is that a person should not take the blood of a Muslim, even if it is of a different sex. Moreover, Muslims are not allowed to consume the urine of a haraam animal (a camel, for example). However, they can consume camel urine and other products for medical purposes.
Alcohol is also forbidden in Islam. Alcohol is regarded as haram, or impure. It is prohibited in the Holy Quran. The Prophet Muhammad himself said that drinking alcohol of any kind is prohibited. He also said that gambling and intoxicants are abominations of Satan’s work. Similarly, the Holy Quran warns righteous Muslims not to forget God while taking alcohol or other drugs.
Suckling a woman’s breasts is permissible
Although some Muslims struggle with the hadith that Sahla breast-fed Salim, others maintain that Sahla did not suckle her husband, but drank her milk in some other way. Nonetheless, Al-Waqidi’s hadith clearly states that Sahla poured the milk from her breast into a cup and then gave it to Salim.
According to the Islamic jurisprudence, the act of breastfeeding an adult male is permissible as long as it is done with consent. There are several hadiths that mention this practice. For example, the book Sahih Muslim includes five hadiths that mention Muhammad instructing a female companion to breastfeed an adult male. In such a case, the adult male is legally regarded as the daughter of the mother. Furthermore, the act makes the male adult an adult mahram of the woman, which makes his cohabitation with her family legal.
Islam does not forbid husbands from enjoying a woman’s breasts, but it does prohibit the act of touching and kissing her breasts. Husbands may, however, suck a woman’s breasts, and can even taste her milk. This practice, however, is not allowed if the husband is already married.
