Question

Salam,
Are different kind of high textured condoms such as dotted,ribbed,spiked condoms designed to create sensation artificially permissible? dotted condoms are being used commonly in our country. Probably, many muslims use it.

Answer

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

We have not come across any statement of the scholars about the ruling on using this specific type of condoms.

Nonetheless, it appears to us – Allah knows best – that it is like any other condom; it is permissible to use them if one is safe from any harm, and provided it is used with the consent of the wife. The fact that it creates an additional feeling does not prevent from using them Islamically.

For more benefit on the use of condoms with one’s wife, please refer to Fataawa 146315, 86946, and 84240.

Allah knows best.
