Blood

Blood is a body fluid in humans and other animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells.In vertebrates, it is composed of blood cells suspended in blood plasma. Plasma, which constitutes 55% of blood fluid, is mostly water (92% by volume), and contains proteins, glucose, mineral ions, hormones, carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation), and blood cells themselves. Albumin is the main protein in plasma, and it functions to regulate the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood.

Thank you for your question. It is not considered tahir, but if the amount is less then the tip of the thumb to the first crease on your thumb, then it is alright to pray with that amount of blood as long as it has not come into contact with water. For the specific amount of blood there may be differences in opinion and so please also refer to the book of Islamic laws of your Marja.

May you always be successful

In the name of Allah

The answer is Yes.

When You breastfeed someone else's child (with all the conditions that will be mentioned below) That child is basically like a child of Your own. So he/she will be Mahram to:

  • You (Breastfeeding mother), your parents, your grandparents and so on, your siblings, your aunts and uncles.
  • Your husband (Breastfeeding Father), his parents, his grandparents and so on, his siblings, his aunts and uncles.
  • Your Children (current and future), your grandchildren and so on.

But what are the conditions for breastfeeding to result in Mharamiyyat?

1. The child should suck the milk from the breast. So if the milk is poured into the child's mouth, it doesn't count.

2. The child should be under two years of age.

3. The milk should be the result of a Halal relationship.

4. The Child should not throw up the milk. If so, it doesn't count.

5. The quantity or duration of breastfeeding should be either of these:

  • Enough so that his/her body would grow due to that milk.
    (Grow: muscles/meat are created or bones will be strengthened)
  • 15 times in a row. (without any other food or milk from another woman)
  • 24 hours straight. (without any other food or milk from another woman)
     

WasSalaam.

It is haram to intentionally swallow blood, and so if you know you have blood in your mouth, you should spit it out. If you are in the state of prayer, and you taste blood, or for some reason you know you have blood in your mouth, you can spit it into a tissue and continue with your prayer, or wait until you finish your prayer, and then spit it out. 

And Allah knows best.

In Islam, sexual foreplay between husband and wife is highly recommended and encouraged, in whatever form or kind it may be. Both husband and wife must equally be satisfied with by fulfilling their sexual urges, and it is very important to accommodate to the sexual needs of one's spouse.

Sexual climaxing is not only naturally and intimately important, but will also strengthen the relationship as well.

As for when a wife is in her menstrual cycle, vaginal penetration is haram, but any other kind of sexual please is permissible. 

However, foreign instruments must not be used, and also najasah like blood or semen must not be swallowed.

And Allah knows best.
