The Written Stuff vs.The Not Written Stuff: Sex Education From An Islamic Perspective Part I

The Human Lens

Part I, Written by By Saadia Haq of The Human Lens

This time in our collaboration we are discussing the unspeakable at length – yes the most tabooed subject among present day Muslim communities; sexual health education and rights.

Islamic countries are complicated really, they are. Just imagine being born in a society where women buying sanitary pads or a boy asking his father about the changes he’s experiencing as a teenager is deemed inappropriate and seriously frowned upon. Here being unmarried culturally stops Muslim youth from gaining sex education and young Muslims marrying too have no proper channel to learn the Islamic teachings on sexuality and intimacy between spouses.

Off course a lot of domestic abuse, patriarchal customs including marital rape of women get happily justified by numerous Muslims in the name of Islam. The present day Muslim male fear of ‘uncontrolled women’ has resulted into justification of male guardianship…

  3. Yay, sex 😛 !

    Seriously though, it is something important that we need to teach our children about to prevent ignorance, abuse, rape, etc. I remember my personal “sex talk” from my father was literally one sentence long. I learned much more in high school class.

      Haha! 😛 I like your enthusiasm. And you’re right and I’ll cover what you mentioned in part 2. Many parents shy away from this crucial subject and teenagers are left to fend for themselves and learn on their own! Just recently, I left the room to feed the baby and and a small romance scene played on the TV screen, the family relative (old) who was visiting went nuts and started looking for the remote to switch the channel! I came back to find him in a frantic state lol!

      Totally in agreement and I can just imagine because we have been through similar situations! And I agree with you that children need to learn so they can avoid or minimize sexual abuse and harmful results.

      The mullas in Pkaistan will take to the streets saying haram haram and promoting AGAINST sexual education being taught to muslim children and youth, while inside four doors they will be watching the program with glee.
      Hypocrisy is a huge problem!!!!
