Anal Sex and it’s Kaffara


AS SALAM ALAIKUM, Can you please answer may question under the Light of Qur’an and Ahadees of 14 Masoomeem a.s. (AHLEBAIT a.s.). If you can share the references from Qur’an and Ahadees of 14 Masoomeem a.s. (AHLEBAIT a.s.) with me, I will really appreciate your help in this matter. Thank you! What is the “Kaffara” for having Anal Sex with a Woman (Wife) when She is Sleeping, who was NOT on her Menstruation?


Waalaykum Salam wa rahmatullah..

Regarding your Question there are two answers given by the office of His eminence A.sistani:

1- if it was with the consent of the wife herself, that is if she didn’t mind, then it is ok but it is Makrooh to perform such an act. (The kirahat is intense)

2- if it was without the consent of the women herself, then it is ‘ihtiyate wajib’ to refrain from the act in future.

In both the cases there is no Kaffarah.

Reference: mas’ala no. 228

The above can also be referred from the book titlled ‘minhaju saliheen’

May Allah give us the tawfiq to worship HIM the way he deserves to be worshiped.Ameen.
