Title: Drinking wifes milk



drinking wifes breast milk is allowed for husband,if not permitted is it break the nikha...plz guide us....may allah bless you with peace and happiness


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is impermissible for the husband to drink his wifes milk. If the husband drinks the wifes breast milk, that would not affect the Nikaah.[i] However, he should perform Istighfaar for doing so.



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
