Islamic Teachings on sex with infants
man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However,
he should not penetrate. If he penetrates and the child is harmed
then he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life.
This girl, however would not count as one of his four permanent
wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girl's sister."
Persian text of this saying can be found in "Ayatollah Khomeini
in Tahrir-ol-Masael, Fourth Edition, Darol Elm, Qom"

Islamic Teachings on sex with animals
meat of horses, mules, or donkeys is not recommended. It is strictly
forbidden if the animal was sodomized while alive by a man. In that
case, the animal must be taken outside the city and sold."
notes: I wonder if it is OK to sodomize a dead animal? What
happens if the buyer brings the poor animal back into the city?
one commits an act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their
urine and their excrements become impure, and even their milk may
no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly
as possible and burned, and the price of it paid to its owner by
him who sodomized it."
note: The poor animal first is sodomized and then killed and
burned. What an Islamic justice toward animals? Where are the animal
is forbidden to consume the excrement of animals or their nasal
secretions. But if such are mixed in minute proportions into other
foods their consumption is not forbidden."
a man (God protect him from it!) fornicates with an animal and ejaculates,
ablution is necessary."
note: It does not say who should have ablution: the animal or
intercourse, if the penis enters a woman's vagina or a man's anus,
fully or only as far as the circumcision ring, both partners become
impure, even if they have not reached puberty; they must consequently
perform their ablutions.
Therefore, homosexuality and pedophilia are accepted in Islam.
Why then the punishment for homosexuality is death?
A man who has
ejaculated and has not yet performed his ablution must avoid the
following ten acts: eating; drinking; reading more than seven verses
of the Koran; touching the binding of Koran, or the margin of its
pages, or spaces between the lines; carrying the Koran on his person;
sleeping; dyeing his beard with henna; anointing himself with grease
or oil; having sexual intercourse after having ejaculated in his

with his own wife, it is preferable for him not to pray if he has
sweated; but if he first has intercourse with his wife and then
with another woman, he may say his prayers even though he be in
A man who has
ejaculated as a result of intercourse with a woman other than his
wife, and who then ejaculates again while having coitus with his
wife, does not have the right to say his prayers while still sweating;
but if he has had intercourse with his wife first and then with
a woman not his wife, he may say his prayers even though still sweating.
If a man can have sexual relation with a woman who is not his wife
why is adultery punishable with death by stoning? Is the woman only
to be blamed?
If a fly or
any other insect settled first on something impure that is moist
and then on something pure that is moist, the later in turns becomes
impure, provided one can be certain that the former was impure;
failing that, it remains pure.

ablutions that are necessary and unavoidable there are a number
of ablutions that are highly recommended in order to please God.
A few of them are:
Friday between dawn and noon.
on the eve of the first day of Ramadan and the eves of all the odd
days of that month, (third, fifth, seventh, and so on). The ablutions
on the eves of the first, fifteenth, seventeenth, nineteenth, twenty-first,
twenty-third, twenty-fifth, twenty-seventh, and twenty-ninth days
of Ramadan are especially recommended. On the eve of the twenty-third
day, one would be well advised to perform two ablutions, one at
the beginning and the other at the end of the night.
by a woman who has used perfume for a man other than her husband.
the man who has fallen asleep while in a drunken state.
a man or woman who, during a total eclipse of the sun or the moon,
said their prayers.
one who has witnessed the hanging of a person condemned to death.
If he did not witness it of his own free will, ablution is not necessarily
This is one way of keeping them clean.
On Woman and her Periods
the time a woman is menstruating, it is preferable for a man to
avoid coitus, even if it does not involve full penetration- that
is, as far as the circumcision ring and even if it does not
involve ejaculation. It is also highly inadvisable for him to sodomize
her during this time.
the number of days of the woman's menstrual period is divided by
three, a husband who has intercourse with her during the first two
days must pay equivalent of 18 nokhods (each nokhod is about 3 grams)
of gold to the poor; if he has it on the third or fourth days the
equivalent of 9 nokhods; and if he has it during the last two days,
the equivalent of 41/2 nokhods. Sodomizing a menstruating woman
does not require such payment.
a man has intercourse with his wife during all three of these periods,
he must pay the equivalent of 31/2 nokhods in gold to the poor.
If the price of gold has changed between the time of coitus and
the time of payment, the rate in effect on the day of payment will
during an act of intercourse a man notices that the woman has begun
menstruating, he must withdraw, if he fails to, he must give alms
to the poor.
such a man cannot afford to give alms to the poor, he must at least
give something to a beggar. If he cannot afford that either, he
must ask forgiveness of God.
a wife's menstrual period, her husband may repudiate her, even if
she has not yet made her ablutions. He may also indulge in relations
with her, but it is preferable that he waits until she has made
her ablutions. In the interim, the woman is not authorized to do
anything which is forbidden to her during menstruation, such as
going into a mosque or touching the writings of the Koran, until
she has completed her ablutions."
It seems it is a lot better if the couple have sex during the entire
menstrual period. It would cost 31/2 nokhods rather than 18 nokhods
if happens in the first two days. It also says that a man should
not sodomize his wife only during this period. However, if he does,
no alms is required.
