Islamic sexual jurisprudence is a part of Islamic family jurisprudence that concerns the Islamic laws of sexuality in Islam , as largely predicated on the Qur'an , the sayings of Muhammad hadith and the rulings of religious leaders' fatwa confining sexual activity to marital relationships between men and women. This sensitivity to gender difference, gender seclution and modesty outside of marriage can be seen in current prominent aspects of Islam, such as interpretations of Islamic dress and degrees of gender segregation. In Islam, prohibitions against extramarital sex are strong and permissible marital sexual activities are familiar subjects. In these permitted relationships, there are also some limitations as well as permissions: a man should not have intercourse during his wife's menstruation and afterbirth periods. He is also considered to be sinning when penetrating anally.

A handbook for Muslim women seeking satisfying love lives, the book starts with the basics—lessons on kissing, sending dirty texts, and the importance of foreplay. After that come chapters on sex positions, shower sex, bondage, and masochism. The Muslimah Sex Manual , independently published in mid-July, has been variously described as groundbreaking and a welcome step. It busts the myth, parading as an Islamic belief, that a pure Muslim cannot be dirty in bed, while giving candid advice. Embedded in it is the message that Muslim women should enjoy a fulfilling sex life.
According to reports, most Americans are engaging in sex before marriage although major religions prohibit premarital sex. Will our youth listen if we show them the scriptures on the topic of sex before marriage? Should we just change with the changing times, overlooking the scriptural guidelines on this issue?
