Dua Upon Drinking Milk In English

O Allah! Bless us in it and give us increase of it.

At-Tirmidhi 5:506

What is the decision on drinking his wife’s milk?


My wife is currently feeding our newborn baby.
During sex, I drank her milk.
Is his milk halal for me?


Praise be to Allaah.

Before answering this question, we need to explain some important points regarding decisions (ahkaam) regarding breastfeeding (al-radaa ‘).
1. Breastfeeding is proven in the Qur’an and Sunnah, and by ijmaa ‘(scientific consensus). Qur’an: Allah says (interpretation of meaning): “… your foster mothers who gave you to nurse, your nursing sisters …
” [al-Nisa ‘4:23]. Sunnah: Ibn Abbaas reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “What is forbidden by radaa” (breastfeeding or breastfeeding) is identical to what is forbidden by nasab (lineage).
” (Agreed, al-Bukhaari, Muslim, 1444). Ijmaa ‘: Scholars agree that the effect of the radaa’ (breastfeeding) prohibits marriage and creates the relationship of mahram, and allows to see and be alone (with the people with whom one is bound by the radaa ‘).
2. In order for breastfeeding to have the effect of transmitting its benefits from the breastfeeding woman to the breastfed child, it must meet certain conditions, namely:

1- Breastfeeding should take place in the first two years of the child’s life, because Allah says (interpretation of meaning): “Mothers should breastfeed their children for two years (that is) for those who desire to end the term of breastfeeding … “[al-Baqarah 2: 233].
2- The number of breastfeeds must be in total of the five known meals, in which the child eats as much as if he ate and drank. If the child is breastfeeding for a reason such as taking a breath or going from one breast to another, this (that is, every time the child takes the breast) is not counted like breastfeeding.
This is the opinion of al-Shaafa’i and the opinion favored by Ibn al-Qayyim. The rad’ah (breastfeeding) is the following definition: the child sucks his breast and drinks until the milk enters his stomach, then he leaves the chest of his own free will. The proof of the number five (number of breastfeeding) is the ratio of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) who said:’ There was in the Qur’an [an ayah which stipulated] ten [was the number of] breastfeeding that created the mahram relationship, then that was abrogated [by another ayah that states] five. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) died and [the Ayah who stipulated five] was always recited in the Qur’an. “

(Reported by Muslim, 1452). In other words, the repeal came so late that when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) died, some people had not yet heard that this aaya had been repealed. but when they had heard that it had been repealed, they had stopped. by reciting it, and agreed that it should not be recited, although the decision mentioned in the ayah remains in effect. It is a repeal of recitation without repealing the decision, which is a type of repeal. Having understood this, breastfeeding after the first two years does not create any mahram relationship. This is the opinion of the majority of scholars and one of the cited references is the ayah quoted above, as well as the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Nothing of breastfeeding does not create the mahram relationship. except what fills the stomach to the point of rupture, before (the age of) weaning. Reported by al-Tirmidhi. (No. 1152), who said: This is a hash sahee hadeeth. According to scholars among the companions of the prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and others, breastfeeding does not create the relationship of mahram except in the first two years of his life. first two full years does not create such a relationship. “

There are other reports of Sahabah, such as that recounted by Abu ‘Atiyah al-Waadi’i, who said: “A man came to Ibn Mas’ood and said:’ My wife was with me and her breasts were full milk (she was engorged). I started to suck and spit it out. Then I arrived at Abu Moosa. “He (Ibn Mas’ood) said,” What did you tell him? “So he told her what he said to him.” Then Ibn Mas’ood got up, took the man’s hand (and said), “Do you think it’s a baby?” Breastfeeding is what produces the growth of flesh and blood. “Abu Moosa said,” Do not ask me anything, while this scholar is among you. “

(Reported by ‘Abd al-Razzaaq in al-Musannaf, 7/463, no. 13895).
In al-Muwatta ‘(2/603), Maalik reported that Ibn’ Umar said: “There is no breastfeeding except one who is breastfed; there is no breastfeeding for the one who has grown up. His isnaad is saheeh. Maalik also reported to al-Muwatta that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn’ Dinar said,
“A man came to ‘Abd-Allaah ibn’ Umar when I was with him in court, asking him to breastfeed a baby. adult child. ‘Abd-Allaah ibn’ Umar said: ‘A man came to Umar ibn al-Khattaab and said,’ I have a slave with whom I had sex, and my wife went to see her and told her gave his milk. then, when I went to see her, she said, “Stop, by Allah, I gave her my milk.” “Umar,” Punish her (your wife), and (continue to) go to your slave, (the decision on) breastfeeding applies only to breastfeeding infants. ” ‘His isnaad is sahee. It is therefore clear that drinking milk from the woman’s wife has no effect and does not create the mahram relationship. Ibn Qudaamah said in al-Mughni (9/201):
“One of the conditions of breastfeeding creating the mahram relationship is that it should be in the first two years. This is the opinion of most scholars. Something like this was told by ‘Umar,’ Ali, Ibn ‘Umar, Ibn Mas’ood, Ibn’ Abbaas, Abu Hurayrah and the Prophet’s wives (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), besides’ Aa’ishah. It was also the opinion of al-Shi’bi, Ibn Shubrumah, al-Oozaa’i, al-Shaafa’i, Ishaaq, Abu Yoosuf, Muhammad and Abu Thawr, and this was narrated in a report by Maalik . Given the above, drinking the woman’s milk has no effect, but it is best to avoid it.
Sheikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen was asked about this and he replied: Breastfeeding an adult has no effect, because breastfeeding that has the effect (to create the mahram relationship) is one that consists of five or more meals in the first two years before weaning. On this basis, if it happened that someone breastfed his wife or drank his milk, he would not become his son.
Fataawa Islamiyah, 3/338. And Allah knows better.
