Is it problematic for a menstruating woman’s husband to satisfy her without any penetration of his organ?
During the period women menstruate, they have pain due to contractions, some say one of the ways to relieve such pains is for them to be satisfied by their husbands without any intercourse. What is the ruling on this?


The response of Ayatullah Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani (may Allah prolong his life) regarding this question:


Penetration of the qubul (vagina) during menstruation is impermissible, but other lustful acts that satisfy the wife by the husband, without penetration taking place, are permissible.


Therefore, what is haram for the woman during menstruation is vaginal intercourse, but satisfying her through means other than intercourse is permissible, such as caressing and foreplay.
