Using enhanced pleasure condoms
Fatwa No: 146315

Question

S/A...I have two questions which are very explicit I apologize but I feel they are important for me and other muslims will benefit inshaAllah Jazakum Allah khair. Firstly, is it ok for my husband to use condoms that have enhancments on it such as condoms that are ribbed, vibrating rims, and/or pleasure enhancing lubricants? My second Question is regarding coitus interruptus; when my husband and I are having sexual intercourse and he is about to orgasm he takes his penis out and shakes or rubs his penis to complete the orgasm; is that allowed or is it considered masturbating?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

It is permissible to use lubricants during sexual intercourse. As regards using the condoms which you mentioned in the question, then one should avoid them. Both spouses may stimulate their desire with foreplay and the like.

With regard to what you mentioned about your husband, it is a kind of masturbation. A husband instead of doing that with his hand, he may do it with his wife’s hand; this is permissible as we clarified in Fatwa 83147.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 100635, 86946, 82154 and 81459.

Allaah Knows best.
