Question:
 
I have a question regarding the sex life of a married Islamic couple. Does Islam allow wife or husband to suck the private parts (Vagina, penis) of each other before having intercourse.
 
Answer:
 
We have received your query in regards to oral sex and our response is as follows:
 
Oral sex is not permitted in terms of Shari'ah.  It does not befit a Muslim to use for such a filthy purpose the same mouth that he/she uses for the tilaawat (recitation) of the Qur'aan, Zikrullah, Durood, etc.  It is stated in Fataawa Aalamgiriyah:-
 
"The act of a man inserting his reproductive organ into his wife's mouth is considered to be highly reprehensible." (Fataawa Aalamgiriyah vol.5 pg.372).

In Fatawa Rahimiyah it is mentioned “to have oral sex is not permitted, it will be highly reprehensive and an act of sin. It will resemble the acts of animals such as dogs etc.” [Page #270 volume #6] 
 
Furthermore, many a times’ "mazhi" (a thin discharge) is emitted from the penis when a person becomes aroused.  A type of wetness also comes out of the woman's vagina.  Both of these are impure. This impurity enters the mouth while having oral sex.  This would hence be another reason for it not being permitted. In fact, such acts (whereby no distinction remains between pure and impure) are an insult to the honor and dignity of human kind and are more akin to the acts of animals such as dogs and pigs.
