Using a Sheath during Intercourse

Q: I am aware that oral sex is Makrooh.  I have recently come across an article(western health website) stating that impurites from private organs could be dangerous and one should avoid these coming into the mouth. The article suggested using a sheath (alternatively dental dam) to cover the private area of a women before doing such acts. If one does take the above precautions, will the act be permissable?

A: The mouth is used for reciting the Qur’aan and taking the name of Allah Ta’aala. The mouth is not meant for anything filthy and disgusting. Since oral sex is a disgusting act, it should not be done in any manner.
