The sin of engaging in anal intercourse

Question

Is this narration reliable?

لا ينظر الله إلى رجل جامع امرأته في دبرها

 

Answer

Imams Ibn Majah and Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allah will not look [with mercy/kindness] at a man who engages in intercourse with his wife in the anus.”

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1923, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 344, Hadith: 8532)

 

‘Allamah Busiri (rahimahullah) has declared this chain authentic (إسناد حديث أبي هريرة صحيح).

(Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 643)

 

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded a similar Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). He has declared this version authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 4203)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
