Fatwa No : 84328
Sex with pregnant wife
Fatwa Date : Rabee' Al-Aakhir 6, 1423 / 16-6-2002
I was reading different Fatwa's at Fatwa Center and I came across the following Hadith: Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "No one should have sexual intercourse with a pregnant woman till she gives birth to a child" . [ Abu Dawood and al-Hakim the latter said that this Hadith is sound].
This was in your Fatwa: 88439. I want to know if this Hadith means that a husband cannot have sex with his wife if she is pregnant until she gives birth to a child? Please explain in detail as if there are any other limitations for a husband while the wife is pregnant.
