Is It Sunnah To Bath with Your Wife? ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain one of the things that married Muslims should know. In general, all married people want their marriage to be happy. There are many things they have done. One of them is doing romantic things. In general, one of the things that can make a husband and wife relationship even more romantic is taking a bath together.

But there are some important things about bathing with husband or wife that Muslims should know. Does Islam allow that? Is bathing with husband or wife Sunnah? If you want to know the answers to these two questions, then you must read this article to the end!

Readers all! Before I explain the answers to the two questions above, I want to explain, that Islam obliges all married Muslims to do things that can make their marriage romantic. In fact, Islam strongly prohibits hurting a spouse, such as a husband hurting his wife, or a wife hurting her husband, or a parent hurting a child, or a child hurting a parent. Islam strictly prohibits that.

We can find an explanation of the obligation to do things that can make the lives of Muslims more romantic in the verses of Quran below;

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَحِلُّ لَكُمْ أَن تَرِثُوا النِّسَاءَ كَرْهًا ۖ وَلَا تَعْضُلُوهُنَّ لِتَذْهَبُوا بِبَعْضِ مَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ إِلَّا أَن يَأْتِينَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ ۚ وَعَاشِرُوهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ فَإِن كَرِهْتُمُوهُنَّ فَعَسَىٰ أَن تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَيَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا

O ye who believe! You cannot get women by force. Do not trouble them because you will take what you have given them, unless they do some real heinous thing. And get along with them very well. Then if you don’t like them, (then be patient) because maybe you don’t like something even though Allah makes a lot of good in that thing. (An-Nisa: 19).
