What is Permissible when She is on her Periods

(in the pure Tradition of the Prophet pbuh)

It is allowed for him to enjoy pleasure with his wife in any way except for her private parts when she is on her period. There are several hadiths about this:

First: “and do everything except intercourse itself.” [Muslim, Abu ‘Auwaana and Aboo Daawood]

Second: On the authority of ‘Aa’ishah (rada) who said: “When we were on our periods, the Prophet (pbuh) used to order us to put on a waist cloth that her husband can then lie with her.” One time she said: “… her husband can then fondle and caress her.” [al-Bukhaaree, Muslims and others].

Third: On the authority of one of the wives of the Prophet (pbuh) who said: “When the Prophet (pbuh) wanted something from one of his wives who was on her period, he put a cloth over her private parts, and then did whatever he wanted.” [Abo Daawood: Saheeh]
