Voluntary sucking of wife milk.

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

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 wife’s 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 wife’s breast….would it effect
their relationship or the validity of their marriage…and 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 wife’s 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 Allah’s
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,
