Endnote Sexual Techniques There are no particular rules and laws either in foreplay or in intercourse. The only laws and rules are the ones reached by the lovers by mutual and often unspoken understanding. Whatever is pleasing and satisfying to both the husband and the wife is right and proper; and whatever is mutually displeasing is wrong. The only limitation to this general rule would be any Shariah rule which goes against the wishes of the husband or the wife. Foreplay is Highly Recommended Islam emphasizes on foreplay.
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir A. These sayings clearly show that the husband and the wife should feel completely free when they are engaged in mutual stimulation which is known as foreplay.
There is nothing wrong, according to Islam, for a woman to be active and responsive during sex. As for the Islamic Shariah, all the mujtahids are unanimous in saying that the act of sexual foreplay in itself is mustahab recommended. Likewise, it is recommended not to rush into sexual intercourse.
Therefore, oral sex, as it is known, is allowed. Imam Musa al-Kazim A. The restriction on the use of foreign objects is based on the following hadith. Because of his old age, he could not fully satisfy the young slave-girl during sexual intercourse. She would therefore ask him to place his fingers in her vagina as she liked it. The old man complied with her wishes even though he did not like this idea. Sexual Intercourse Is there any particular position for sexual intercourse which is forbidden in Islam?
As far as the basic coital positions are concerned, there are no restrictions. Actually, the Shariah has left it on the husband and the wife to explore and experiment as they wish. However, it is makruh to adopt a standing position, or to face the qiblah or keep it on the backside during the intercourse. It is advisable to refrain from the acrobatic positions given by some sexologists of the East and the West which might even cause physical harm. Remember, the basic rule is mutual pleasure and flexibility.
If one partner does not like a particular position, then the other should yield to his or her feelings. Anal Intercourse The opinions of our mujtahids vary on the permissibility of anal intercourse.
