Basic bedroom fiqh
It is disliked to:
* Face the qibla. (Ibn `Abidin)
* Be in the presence of a mature child. (Ibn `Abidin)
* Talk, for it is from the sunna not to talk excessively during intercourse. (Ibn `Abidin)
It is proper to cover up a Qur’an in the bedroom. (Ibn `Abidin)
It is best to avoid looking at each other’s private parts, though some Companions held that it is fine because it increases desire. (Durar)
Ibn al-Hajj al-Maliki mentioned in al-Madkhal:
* The beginning of the night is better …
Turning Sex Into Sadaqa
"Women shall have rights similar to the rights upon them; according to what is equitable and just; and men have a degree of advantage over them." (Quran, 2:216)
They do indeed! This passage of the Holy Quran was revealed in connection with the rights of women following a divorce, but it also has a general sense. One basic right of every person taking on a contract never to have sex other than with their own legitimate partner is that each spouse should therefore provide sexual fulfillment (imta') to the other, as part of the bargain.
Now, every man knows what sexual things please him--but some men, particularly those who have not been married before and are therefore lacking experience, don't seem to know much about how to give the same pleasure to ...
Masturbating to avoid pornography
Question: I am visiting USA these days and want to find out a few things. I am away from my family for some time now. The nature of my job is that I am on the internet most of the time. Now during my browsing and looking for different things on the internet, there are a lot of pop up advertisements that come up, and these are mostly half naked women, or about dream resorts etc. Sometimes ladies invite to view their web cams. All this i have been restraining my self due to the fear of Allah, but sometimes Shaitan takes over and i do visit these sites. Then suddenly i realize that i am not doing the right thing. Sometimes I feel the extreme urge to have sex with my wife. Is masturbation allowed under these circumstances, i mean this will stop me from seeing naked pictures. It will stop me from the zina of eyes.
Answer: This is a false dichotomy: masturbation, which is strongly prohibited, is not the solution ...

I once heard of an Islamic book called "Perfumed Garden"? Is there such a publication? Or could someone suggest other sources. In particular, I needed to know what the five schools of thought advised on oral sex or fellatio. Please email or post responses. Thank you.
May Allah bless you and your wife with his blessing and unite you in harmony and happiness.
The book you mentioned, "The Perfumed Garden", was written in Tunisia in the 16th century A.D. by Cheikh 'Omar bin Sidi en-Nefzawi. It is a sort of marriage manual written in a rather provocative and lewd style. Even the author himself acknowledges its lascivious nature by ending it with these words: "I have indeed committed a sin by writing this book. Forgive me O Thou to whom we call not in vain. O Allah, do not confound me for this on the Day of Judgment. And you, O Reader, I beg you to say 'Amen'." The book is an interesting historical and cultural oddity; it is not to be recommended as an educational manual for married couples.
The principles of conjugal love in Islam are few and uncomplicated.
1. Sexual relations are for the pleasure of both the husband and the wife and for the procreation of children. Sexual intercourse is not limited to vaginal penetration but includes other forms of sexual caressing, such as kissing and fondling of various kinds.
2. Nothing should be done that is offensive or harmful to either person. Each has a duty to be sexually ...
