Islam and Sexuality: Exploring Sex and Sexuality from an Islamic Perspective

In this brand new course you can expect to study the biological, psychological, sociological and spiritual aspects of sexuality.

Did you know that there are over 80 sexual references in the Quran? And that the person who spoke about sex most openly and honestly was the Prophet Muhammad (s)? Did you know about the contribution of Muslim thinkers to the educational field of sexology? It’s a growing discipline that studies the effect of human sexuality on the self and society. Isn’t it time we talked about it more openly in a faith context?

We live in a society where sexuality is becoming all too relevant at younger and younger ages. If we as adults do not know how to intellectually engage in this dialogue with our peers, how can we expect to broach the subject in an Islamic way with the younger generation when the time comes? It’s time to talk. Honestly, accurately and islamically. Whether you’re an education or health professional who encounters these issues at work, or simply a concerned parent who wants to know how to broach the subject with their children, this is course is for you.
