Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
UNKNOWINGLY A SHARIA`A SIN IS COMITTED, FEW DROPS OF BREASTMILK IS CONSUMED BY THE HUSBAND LATER THE PARTY INVOLVED REPENTANT.WILL THIS ACTION BE FORGIVEN ?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Can husband drink breast milk of wife?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
If a husband drinks a few drops of his wife’s breast-milk, there is absolutely no harm; and their relation as husband and wife is not effected in the least; neither is it considered a sin in Islam.
Only if a suckling mother breastfeeds another infant or child, that forms a suckling relationship between the woman and the child, and has ramifications of being mehram in Shariah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
