The Ruling on Having Anal Sex with a Women, or During Her Menstrual Period, or Her Post-Natal Bleeding

What is the ruling on having anal sex with a woman, or when she has her period, or when she has post-natal bleeding?

It is not permissible to have sex with a woman in her anus, nor during her menstrual period, nor when she has past-natal bleeding. Indeed, this is one of the major sins, according to the Words of Allah, Mist High: They ask you concerning menstruation, Say: That is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses and go not in unto them till they are purified (from menses and have taken a bath).And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah had ordained for you (go in unto them in any manner as long as it is in their vagina).Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves (by taking a bath and cleaning and washing thoroughly their private parts and bodies for their prayers).Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth, when or how you will.[1] In this Verse Allah, Most Glorified,has made clear the obligation to avoid women during their menstrual periods. He forbade approaching them until they are purified. This proves the prohibition of having sexual intercourse during their menstrual periods. Post-natal bleeding is the same as that. So when they become purified by complete ablution (ghusl), it is permissible for the husband to have sex with her in the way which Allah commanded. That is to have sex with them in front (i.e., the vagina) and that is the place where one ploughs (i.e., plants seeds).As for the anus, it is a place of harm and feces, and it is not the place for planting seeds. Therefore, it is not permissible to have sex with the wife in her anus. Indeed, that is one of the major sins, and it is well known to be an act of disobedience to the purified Islamic Law. Abu Dawud and An-NisařI have reported from the Prophet-Sallallahu alaihi wasallam- that he said: Cursed is the one who has sex with his wife in her anus. [2] At-Tirmithi and An-Nasaři reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, from the Prophet -Sallallahu alaihi wasallam- that he said: Allah will not look at a man who had sex with a man or women in the anus. [3] And its chain of narrators is authentic .Having anal sex with a woman is from Al-Liwat, which is forbidden to both men and women. And Allah, Most Glorified.Most High says about the people of Lut,peace be upon him: You commit Al-Fahishah (sodomy-the worst sin) which none has preceded you in(committing) it in the Alamin ( mankind and jinn), [4] And the prophet- Sallallahu alaihi wasallam- said: Allah curses the one who performs the actions of the people of Lut. [5] He said it three times.Narrated by Imam Ahmed with an authentic chain of narrators. So it is incumbent upon all the Muslims to be on their guard against this sinful deed, and it is necessary for the wives to avoid it, and not allow their husbands to commit this great sin. That is, sexual intercourse during the menstrual period, during post-natal bleeding, and sex via the anus. We ask Allah to protect the Muslims and keep them safe from everything which opposes His purified Law, for He is the best One to ask.
