Sunan Abi Dawood 213
Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal:

I asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ: What is lawful for a man to do with his wife when she is menstruating? He replied: What is above the waist-wrapper, but it is better to abstain from it, too.

Abu Dawud said: This (tradition) is not strong.
حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ الْيَزَنِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا بَقِيَّةُ بْنُ الْوَلِيدِ، عَنْ سَعْدٍ الأَغْطَشِ، - وَهُوَ ابْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ - عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَائِذٍ الأَزْدِيِّ، - قَالَ هِشَامٌ وَهُوَ ابْنُ قُرْطٍ أَمِيرُ حِمْصَ - عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ، قَالَ سَأَلْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَمَّا يَحِلُّ لِلرَّجُلِ مِنَ امْرَأَتِهِ وَهِيَ حَائِضٌ قَالَ فَقَالَ ‏
"‏ مَا فَوْقَ الإِزَارِ وَالتَّعَفُّفُ عَنْ ذَلِكَ أَفْضَلُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ وَلَيْسَ هُوَ - يَعْنِي الْحَدِيثَ - بِالْقَوِيِّ ‏.‏
