Question :
It is allowed for a man to have intercourse with his wife while she is pregnant? Is there any text of the Qur'an or Sunnah that indicates that this is either permissible or forbidden?

Answer :
It is allowed for a man to have intercourse with his wife while she is pregnant, for Allah has said,
Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth when or how you will....
"Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth when or how you will...."
Al-Baqara 223
Allah also says,
Those who guard their private parts except from their wives or their slaves....
"Those who guard their private parts except from their wives or their slaves...."
Al-Muminoon 5-6.

The words "except for their wives" is stated in an unrestricted sense. Therefore, the basic ruling is that it is allowed for a man to enjoy the pleasure of his wife under all circumstances except those in which the Qur'an and Sunnah have clearly stated that he must refrain from such acts. Therefore, it is not necessary to prove that he may have intercourse with his pregnant wife because the basic ruling is one of permissibility. IT is not allowed for a man to have intercourse through the woman's private part, but he may enjoy her pleasure in any other way. It is also not permissible for him to have anal intercourse with her as it is a place of filth and harm. Similarly, he cannot have intercourse with her while she has post-partum bleeding until she becomes pure from such post-partum or menstrual bleeding. But he may have intercourse with her if she becomes clean of post-partum bleeding, even if it is before the expiration of the forty day period.
Shaikh ibn Uthaimin
