Drinking Wife's Breast Milk
  • Question:

    Is a man allowed to drink his wife's breast milk?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    It is the consensus of the mainstream Islamic jurists that it is impermissible for a man to drink his wife’s breast milk. (See al Dur al Mukhtār)

    The milk produced in the breasts of a woman is for infants. It is not permissible for an adult to use such milk unless in extreme dire situations such as for the purpose of medicine.

    And Allah knows best.
