English Interpretation:

My question is that if husband wants to look at his wife’s body, then can he? And if he wants to and the wife stops him and says you can do what you want but after switching the lights off! Will the wife be sinful?
Yes, in light of Islamic teachings the husband can look at his wife’s body. It is mentioned in a Hadith in Tirmidi Shareef that a Sahabi (R.A) asked the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) that which of our nakedness is allowed, and of which must we beware? Holy Prophet (S.A.W) replied, that guard your nakedness except from your wife. This establishes that both husband and wife can look at each other’s body.

Foreplay to create intimacy leading to sexual intercourse between husband and wife is encouraged to fulfill each other’s rights and needs, providing this doesn’t violate Shariah. It is narrated in a Hadith that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said: “No one of you should fall upon his wife like an animal; rather let there first be a messenger between you. And what is that messenger? They asked, upon which He (S.A.W) replied, kisses and words.

If the wife denies a request which leads to her husband not receiving his right, or vice versa then the one who is restricting (that which has been made lawful in Islam) will be Sinful.

In another Hadith it is stated in Muslim Shareef:”….and in man’s sexual intercourse (with his wife) there is Sadaqah (charity).” They (The Companion’s (R.A)) said. ”O Messenger (S.A.W) of Allah (S.W.T), is there reward for him who satisfies his sexual passion among us?” He (S.A.W) said: “Tell me, if he were to devote it to something forbidden, would it not be a Sin on his part? Similarly, if he were to devote it to something lawful, he should have a reward.”

Hope this answers the question.
