I am a new muslim and I am reading the Quran to understand more about Islam. There are a few particular verse I don't understand which is 23:5-7.
My question is that God allowed a man to have sexual intercourse with his wives which is no doubt, fair. But what does 'right hand possession' exactly means? Why does God allow man to have sexual intercourse with their 'right hand possession' when they are not official married?
I have tried to search on the internet for answer, but I can't really find one.
Can you please clarify my question.
Thank you very much.
