Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

Islam permitted both spouses to enjoy each other within the limits set in Islamic law. This is enough for the people who have a sound natural predisposition; a Muslim should limit himself to such limits.

When the husband inserts his finger in the vagina of his wife during her menses, he is touching impurity. The jurists  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them stated that it is forbidden to touch impurities without a necessity.

As regards doing so with the use of protectives, then we do not know any evidence which prohibits doing so. However, the protective could get torn or spoilt and hence the impurity (the blood of menses) would touch the hand.

Finally, it should be noted that it is not proper to do this act, even with the use of a protective.

Allaah Knows best.
