Is there Quranic evidence that prohibits anal sex?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
Both the Qur’an and Authentic Hadith are reliable sources for guidance.
It is agreed upon by all Muslim jurists that anal sex is strictly prohibited in Islam. The Prophet (peace be upon him) has warned:
“Do not approach women in their anus (for fulfilling your carnal desires)”. (Tirmidhi)
“Allah does not glance towards that man who approaches another man or a woman (for fulfilling his sexual desires) in (their) anus.” (Tirmidhi)
And Allah knows best.
