Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


Intercourse during pregnancy is based on the wellbeing of the wife and child. Therefore, if it will cause harm to the wife or child then one should refrain from intercourse during pregnancy. The gynaecologist will be able to advice on that.
