In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “Indeed Allaah is not shy of (stating) the truth. Do not approach women in their back passages”.
Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: Shyness in the presence of Allah is that you avoid doing what is prohibited and what you have been told to avoid, as well as not failing to perform the mandatory and obligatory deeds. Similarly, one should be shy when it comes to Allah’s rights. He should also be shy of people within the confines of the Shariah, and this must be proven through deeds. And in respect to this shyness, women are not to be approached through the back passage [i.e. sexual intercourse in the anus is forbidden] because the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “Cursed is the one who approaches a woman in her back passage”. Due to the fact that it is neither the proper location for the placement of the semen nor where offspring should be sought, the Prophet condemned this and declared it a major sin. (1)
Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: “The back passage is a place of filth, serving as an excrement escape. If Allah prevents (a husband) from engaging in sexual activity with a wife who is menstruating because of the impurity in her private area, then how about engaging in sexual activity in the location [i.e. the anus] from whence severe impurity exits”. (2)
Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: The vagina is where offspring is sought. Regarding the anus, not one Prophet among the Prophets has said that it is permissible! Imaam Abu Daawud reported in his Sunan from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger said: “Cursed is the one who has sexual intercourse with his wife in the anus”. [Abu Dawud. Hadeeth Number 2162]
When it is the fact that Allah forbids sexual activity through the vagina because of apparent harm (i.e. menstruation or post-partum bleeding), then what about the anus, which is a location for the permanent disposal of harmful things (feces)? To engage in sexual relations with a wife through the anus is a violation of her right to be satisfied by her husband. Anal sex neither satisfies her sexual needs nor accomplishes its goal. The vagina is the natural location equipped for sexual encounters; neither was the anus created nor equipped for this purpose.
Due to the fact that it is exceedingly bizarre and distant from the innate natural human inclination, sexual activity through the anus is damaging for both men and women. Because it leads to Allah’s wrath and curse, it is among the major causes of punishment and blessings being withheld. Additionally, it takes away the person’s shyness because shyness provides life to the heart (i.e. helps it to hate and turn away from repulsive behaviors). However, if the heart is stripped of its shyness, it begins to beautify disgusting behavior and declare good behavior to be disgusting, which strengthens and normalizes corruption. (3)
Rise in popularity of anal sex (i.e. buggery) has led to health problems for women– By Denis Campbell Health policy editor Thu 11 Aug 2022 23.30 (The Guardian)
Quote: “Women in the UK are suffering injuries and other health problems as a result of the growing popularity of anal sex among straight couples, two NHS surgeons have warned. The consequences include incontinence and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as pain and bleeding because they have experienced bodily trauma while engaging in the practice, the doctors write in an article in the British Medical Journal”.

We ask Allah:
اللهم كما حَسَّنْت خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي
O Allah! Just as You made my external form beautiful, make my character beautiful as well.
