Bismillah ir-rahman ir-rahmin. All praise and thanks are due to Allah alone. Peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad, the last of His messengers and prophets.
This book covers an important topic that is not often discussed in the Muslim world. There is a need for a book like this in the English-speaking Muslim world because most of the books on this topic are not written from an Islamic point of view. While many Muslims shy away from talking about sexual issues, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, spoke of sexual issues on many occasions as is detailed in this book. As these issues impact us all, this book is a value resource for Muslims as it provides information and sources on many different sexual issues.
It should be noted that this book was written by a Turkish author. It was translated from Turkish to English and slightly adapted for the English-speaking world. In addition, the author translated some of the ahadith from Arabic to Turkish himself and these ahadith were then translated from Turkish to English.
it should be noted that this book looks not only at the Islamic view of sexual intercourse but also addresses the topic of sexuality in a broad manner. Thus, it explores topics such as marriage, polygamy. adultery, homosexuality, anal intercourse, sexual diseases, divorce, jealousy, dress, chastity, prohibited sexual acts, pornography, music, media, alcohol, poverty, etc. This should explain the vast volume of this book and it should not be interpreted as an overemphasis of sex in Islam.
The intention of this book is servitude toward the Creator of all mankind, the Lord Allah, and my goal is to gain His favor. I hope that that book will be beneficial for Muslim readers and readers of different beliefs and lifestyles, and I pray that the Lord makes my hope a reality.
