The Fiqh Details of Oral Sex

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: What is the fiqh ruling of performing oral sex?

Answer: Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Oral sex takes various rulings depending on the situation:

a) if oral sex entails swallowing or likely swallowing of filthy substances–such as pre-sexual discharge–then it is prohibitively disliked and sinful;

b) if there is fear of this, and this fear is at the level of likelihood, then it would also be impermissible and sinful;

c) if the fear is not at the level of likelihood–such as when all precautions are taken–then it would be disliked and improper;

d) when there is no fear of swallowing any filth, even accidentally, then it would be other than the best thing to do (khilaf al-awla).

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
