Summary of answer

It is permissible for husband and wife to masturbate each other. It is part of the enjoyment which Allah has allowed.


Praise be to Allah.

Masturbation between husband and wife is not haram, rather, it is permissible. This is because it is a part of the enjoyment which Allah has allowed.  Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

"Those who guard their chastity (.e., [private parts, from illegal sexual acts) Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, - for them, they are free from blame." [al-Muminun 23:5-6]
