Can I Satisfy Myself During Sexual Relations?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaikum.

When me and my husband are having sex the only way I can be satisfied and have an orgasm is by rubbing my clitoris with my hands while having sex with him. Is it permissible?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

No, this would not be permitted as the basis is that masturbation is impermissible. The solution would be to ask your spouse to do it for you, which is permitted.

And Allah knows best.
