Sister in Islam,
We take note of the contents of your email.
You state that your marriage is 6 years old. You complain of non-cooperation from your husband in intimate relationship. It should be understood that intimate relationship is a mutual relationship where both spouses fulfil their desires as well as fulfil each other’s desires.
In an intimate relationship, the positive state of the heart, mind and body of both spouses are important. If one spouse has an urge and the other does not, the relationship will not be fulfilling. It is precisely for that reason Shariah has encouraged foreplay to warm up one’s spouse to be able to positively respond. The physical and biological state of the body plays an important role in intimate relationship.
It is possible that there may be a medical reason for your husband’s low libido and it would be wise for him to see a qualified medical practitioner. You may also visit a sex therapist, a psychotherapist that specializes in sexual issues, who can advise you further. You may also consult an Aamil (an expert in removing effects of black magic).
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
