Completely Naked During Intercourse?

Question: Can one have intercourse by removing all of one’s clothing?

Answer: Assalamu alaykum,

Yes, it is permissible for a couple to fully remove their clothing for intercourse. It is not prohibited nor disliked.

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani mentions, in the link below, that it is superior if some nakedness is generally covered because the Prophet, may Allah bless him and give him peace, said, “Allah is more deserving of one’s shyness than people are” [Tirmidhi].  Perhaps a couple could use a blanket or sheet.
