Many people have been looking for the answer to this question can husband and wife bath together in islam? This post will take a look at this question from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Can Husband And Wife Bath Together in Islam?
Yes they can, there is absolutely no hijaab between a husband and a wife who are united in the sacred bond of marriage in Islam, and there is absolutely no restriction between them taking a shower or bath together, if they wish to do so.
The relationship between husband and wife is the holiest and most loving relationship in the world.
It’s all about love, friendship, affection, and attraction in this story. There is romance as well as physical togetherness.
Among them, all such activities are valid that would not be valid without the husband-wife relationship. They anticipate something from each other that others should not expect.
One of the things she wants is to take a bath together. It is really beneficial to desire to make marital life more attractive.
It is absolutely permissible in Islam for husband and wife to bathe together.
Aisha, Radiyallahu Anha, said that
I and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to take a bath using water from a pot.Sahih Bukhari – 250
Ibn ‘Abbas, Radiyallahu Anhu, Narrated that Maimuna, Radiyallahu Anha, (one of the wives of the messenger) informed him that she and the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam – used to take a bath (using water) from the same vessel.
These two hadiths prove that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and his wives used to bathe together.
So Muslim couples have no problem bathing together. Rather it helps to make the husband-wife relationship more lively.
Imam Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in his commentary on Sahih Muslim:
It is unanimously permissible for a husband and wife to receive holiness from the same vessel (using water).
Imam Sanani – may Allah have mercy on him – said
The hadith narrated from Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) is a prove that it is permissible for husband and wife to take a bath together. That’s the point.
Imam Shawqani – Rahimahullah – said in the book of Nailul Awtar –
No one disagrees that bathing and ablution are legal for men and women together.
Is It Sunnah To Shower With Your Wife?
It is a Sunnah for husband and wife to take a bath together. However, even if they take a bath separately, there is no problem.
Occasionally bathing can be done together to make love and romance towards the wife. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to take occasional baths with his wives.
While taking water from the pot, the hand Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) would stick to her hand.
These hadiths prove that it is Sunnah to take a bath with the middle wife from time to time. So don’t mind doing it.
Many people think that husband and wife must take a bath together. But the correct thing is that it is not obligatory.
Can a husband see his wife’s private parts?
It is permissible for a woman to see all of her husband’s body and for a man to see all of his wife’s body, with no need to go into details, because Allah says:
“And those who guard their chastity (i.e., private parts, from illegal acts), except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, – for then, they are free from blame; but whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.”Surah al-Muminun 23:5-7
Al-Hafiz said in al-Fath: “Al-Dawudi interpreted this to mean that it is permissible for a man to look at his wife’s ‘awrah and vice-versa.
This is supported by the report narrated by Ibn Hibban via Sulayman ibn Musa, who was asked about a man looking at his wife’s private parts. He said: ‘I asked ‘Aishah, and she referred to this hadith.’ This is evidence in this matter.
And Allah knows best.”
More answer from Islamqa.info, as for the words that some people attribute to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), that it is makruh (disliked) for a man to look at his wife’s private parts, this is not sahih.
