Islam is a total and complete way of life, therefore, sex education is part of the Islamic teachings. The Qur’an cites numerous injunctions related to matrimonial life, and the Prophet (saw) had explained these teachings in a noble way. Allah (swt) says in Surah Al-Nisa (The Women) the following: “O people, keep your duty to your Lord, who created you from a single being and creates its mate of the same (kind), and spread from these two many men and women. And keep your duty to Allah, by whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship. Surely Allah is ever a Watcher over you.” (Qur’an 4: 1)

There are many ways in which you can spend your time constructively and become closer to Allah (swt).

1. Reading the Qur’an

The Qur’an is the word of Allah which was revealed to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) through the Angel Jibril (as). There are two reasons why you should read it regularly. Simply reading the Qur’an in Arabic with your full attention is in itself an act of worship and will bring you closer to Allah. The Qur’an is a guide given to us by Allah and so it contains plenty of useful and relevant advice about how best to live our lives.
