SUNDAY SPECIAL: Is a Wife right to deny her Husband sex?

Many people live in marriages where sex is rare or non-existent.
Often, it is the women who refuse to have intercourse with their
husbands at some point or Age. Both Christianity and Islam prohibit
illicit sexual relations, premarital sex, fornication, adultery and
It is for this reason that a wife is BOUND by the Scriptures and
Society to satisfy the husband's sexual desires and vice versa to
prevent extra marital affairs. In Quran 2:187, Allah says "They (your
wives) are your garments and you are also their garments".

In Corinthians 7: 3-4, it is said "The husband should give to his wife
her conjugal rights and likewise the wife to the husband. The wife has
no authority over her own body but the husband has and vice versa".
Prophet Muhammad said "If a husband calls his wife to his bed and she
refuses without CONVINCING reasons (except for illness and
menstruation) and causes him to sleep in anger, the Angels will curse
her till morning.

Further, Allah is displeased with her until her husband is pleased
with her". The scriptures say "no refusal "to marital sex unless
MUTUALLY agreed and that whoever refuses is sinning and incurs the
wrath of God. The Prophet said that there is reward in marital sex and
that each act earns the couple a reward equivalent to the performance
of 70 nawafil (voluntary) prayers. Sex is natural and central in
marriage and its absence causes rancour in the marriage.

In extreme cases, some women have been killed for denying their
husbands sex. Marriages can be legally annulled where marital
intercourse is rare or unavailable. If married couples are committed
to the sacred institution of marriage, it is their duty,
responsibility and interest to fully cooperate in matters of sexual
intercourse for peace and happiness to prevail in marital homes.

Couples who fear the chastisement of the Lord, should mutually strive
at all times to satisfy each other sexually. A Husband should work to
prepare his wife psychologically and physically with love, romance and
interest to submit happily to his sexual advances. May Allah touch the
hearts and minds of wives to go the Extra mile to always be there to
satisfy the sexual desires of their husbands.

May we continue to walk in the ways of the Lord.
