The Atonement for Having Anal Intercourse


Question :
What is the ruling on having anal intercourse? And is there any atonement incumbent upon one who does so?

Answer :
Anal intercourse with a woman is a major sin and a repugnant act of disobedience, according to the confirmed narration from the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, in which he said:
Allah will not look at a man who had sex with a man or woman in the anus.
"Allah will not look at a man who had sex with a man or woman in the anus."
At-Tirmithi no. 1165 and An-Nasai' no. 9001.
It is incumbent upon one who does that to hasten to repent to Allah. That means o abandon the sin and leave it in glorification of Allah and in order to avoid His Punishment. He must also show remorse for what has passed of that (sin) and to make the honest intention not to repeat it, along with an effort to perform many good deeds.
And whoever repents honestly to Allah, Allah will turn to him with forgiveness and pardon his sin, as He says:
And verily, I am indeed forgiving to him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them (till his death).
"And verily, I am indeed forgiving to him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them (till his death)."
Ta-Ha 20:82.
He, the Almighty, the All-Powerful says:
And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, not commit illegal sexual intercourse - and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;. Except those who repent and believe (in Islamic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds; for those, Allah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
"And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, not commit illegal sexual intercourse - and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;. Except those who repent and believe (in Islamic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds; for those, Allah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Al-Furqan 68:70.
The Prophet Peace Be Upon Him said:
Islam wipes not what was before it, and emigration wipes out what was before it.
"Islam wipes not what was before it, and emigration wipes out what was before it."
Muslim no. 121 and Ahmad 4/199.
The Verse and Hadiths bearing this meaning are numerous. There is no atonement for one who has anal intercourse, according to the most two opinions held by the scholars. Nor does his wife become forbidden to him due to it; rather she remains in his custody.
She should not obey him in this great sin; rather she should prevent him from doing so and seek annulment of her marriage if he does not repent. We ask Allah to protect us from that.
Ibn Baz
