Please help me for fining the truth. I want to know what's the truth? Is anal sex haram or not? Praise be to Allaah. There are many saheeh ahaadeeth which show that anal intercourse is haraam, such as the following: The Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said: And there are many similar ahaadeeth. They understand from the verse interpretation of the meaning: This misinterpretation is reinforced for them when they read the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhaari in his Saheeh. So perhaps this is the hadeeth referred to by the questioner, in which it says: It was narrated that Jaabir may Allaah be pleased with him said: The Jews used to say that if the man had intercourse from behind, the child would be born with a squint.
But this is a misunderstanding of the verse. So it is permissible for a man to have intercourse with his wife from behind or from in front or lying on their sides so long as it is in the place of tilth and not the back passage. If he wishes, when she is lying on her front and if he wishes when she is not lying on her front, so long as that is in only one opening. It was narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Munkadir said: I heard Jaabir say: The Jews say that if a man has intercourse with his wife in her vagina from behind, the child will have a squint.
Then Allaah revealed the words interpretation of the meaning: O Messenger of Allaah, I am doomed! I changed my direction last night. The Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him did not say anything. Then this verse was revealed to the Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him interpretation of the meaning: So approach from the front or the back, but avoid the back passage and the time of menses.
Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. These ahaadeeth and reports explain what is meant by the verse. So it is not permissible for the Muslim to go beyond that and understand it in ways that are not indicated by the reports or by linguistic usage. The verse indicates that it is haraam to have intercourse with her in her back passage for two reasons. The first is that it is permitted to have intercourse with her in the tilth, which is the place of birth, and not in the anus which is the place of filth.
This is how it appears in all the texts. He may approach her in her back passage. But the scholars answered that in two ways: Would a Muslim do that?! The second answer is: The Sunnah and the views of all the Sahaabah indicate that it was an incorrect ijtihaad. The people of the Book did not have intercourse with their wives except on their sides, and that was most concealing for the woman.
This tribe of the Ansaar had adopted that from them. And this tribe of Quraysh used to make the woman lie in whatever position they wanted and enjoy them in various ways.
When the Muhaajiroon came to Madeenah, one of their men married a woman of the Ansaar, and he went to do that with her but she objected and said: We have intercourse lying on our sides, so do that or keep away from me.
Their problem got worse until news of that reached the Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him and Allaah revealed the words interpretation of the meaning: Islam forbids this action, and there is nothing to indicate that it is permissible. And Allaah knows best.
