Is satifying the wife in bed obligatory in islam?


When someone has premature ejaculation causing him to come before penetration or shortly after, how can he deal with that in the islamic point of view? Is it permissible to use aphrodisiacs, or prescription drugs like viagra to remedy the situation? Is there an islamic way to end premature ejaculation?


It is compulsory to satisfy the wife's sexual passion.

If the husband experiences any type of sexual problems, for example,
premature ejaculation, low libido, etc. he should cure himself by referring
to a physician.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai
