Intimate Relationship with Wife During Menses


I understand that sexual intercourse with a woman during her menstruation is forbidden. But how about giving a woman in that state orgasm by stimulating her through masturbation. Would that be permissible?


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-ramatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is not permissible for a man to touch any part of his wife from the navel to the knees during her menses. Hence stimulating her through masturbation will fall under the same ruling.[1]
