Is Oral Sex Permissible?




Respected Mufti,
What is the position of oral sex in Islam? I have read an article saying that it is Makrooh and another saying that it is permissible. Which if any are correct?
If on rare occasions (4-5times a year) one does happen to have oral sex (with a condom & no ejaculation) would it be considered a sin?
During lovemaking is it permissible to fondle and kiss or lick the genital area?


 Fatwaa no.  117/06



Oral sex is Makrooh. If a person does it to arouse the sensations during foreplay and the impurities do not enter the mouth then it is not a sin. It is permissible to kiss or lick the genital area before intercourse in order to arouse and stimulate the sensations.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
