Read the prayer before Halal Sex

Before having sex, husband and wife should recite the prayer first. This prayer is intended so that we are kept away from the devil when having marital relations. The pronunciation of the prayer is:

“Bismillah, allahumma jannibnas-syaithaan wa jannibis-syaithaana maa razaq-tanaa”

Meaning: “In the name of Allah, O Allah, keep us away from (disturbing) the devil and keep the devil away from the sustenance that You have bestowed upon us.”

Go from any direction

Islam justifies all variations or ways of having sex. As long as it is in the genitals. That is, a husband is allowed to have intercourse with his wife from any direction, as long as it is only in one hole, namely the genitals. This is based on the word of Allah Ta’ala,

“Your wives are (like) the land where you grow crops, so come to the land where you grow crops. So go your crops as you wish.” (Surat al-Baqarah: 223)

Anal Sex is Forbidden

In Islam, we are forbidden to have intercourse through the anus or anal sex. As mentioned in the letter Al-Baqarah verse 223 above that the wife is a field where the husband grows crops. The place where the seeds are sown is in the genitals, not in the anus. The hadith that underlies this prohibition is the words of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam,

“Truly cursed is the man who fucks his wife in the rectum.” (HR. Ahmad 2:479)

Sex when the wife is menstruating

In addition to the prohibition on anal sex. Islam also does not allow husbands to have intercourse with their menstruating wives. Husbands are still allowed to carry out other sexual activities, as long as they do not have intercourse in the genitals. This explanation is summarized in the letter Al-Baqarah verse 222.

They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘Menstruation is an excrement’. Therefore, you should abstain from women during menstruation; and do not approach them until they are holy. When they are pure, then meet them where Allah has commanded you.” (Surat al-Baqarah: 222)

Wudhu if you want to repeat sexual intercourse

Newlyweds or couples who are programing to add children can usually have sex more than once in one round. It’s okay to repeat once, twice, or three times. However, it is sunnah for us to perform ablution when we want to repeat sexual relations. The goal is to add freshness and enthusiasm to continue the next round.

Take a Janabat bath after having sex

After having sex, husband and wife are required to take a Janabat bath. In fact, even if the husband does not get semen or sperm out. It is still obligatory to take a Gusal bath. In addition, the husband also still has to take a mandatory bath if semen comes out even though it does not have intercourse in the genitals, for example sperm comes out during foreplay. The obligation to bathe in Janabat after having sex is written in the Qur’an Surah An-Nisa verse 43.

Don’t share your Bedroom Life

The rule and etiquette of having sex in the Islamic teachings, namely it is forbidden for a person to share bedroom life that occurs between himself and his partner. Spreading a bedroom relationship is even considered the greatest betrayal.
