Islamic Guide To Sexual Relations by Mufti Muhammad Ibn Adam al-Kawthari. Fulfilment of sexual desire and needs are key in sustaining a harmonious marital relationship. However, in today’s society, sexual boundaries are being pushed further and further, and often, sexual deviance is openly practised. In such circumstances, there is a need to identify which sexual activities are permissible in Shari’ah. Islamic Guide to Sexual Relations is a serious endeavour to tackle these sensitive matters in a clear and concise manner. While being respectful and dignified in the language he employs, the author does not shy away from discussing sensitive issues. He records, in thorough detail, the guidance Islam provides regarding sexual encounters with one’s spouse. The book covers a wide range of issues, and thus, answers many frequently asked questions on the topic of sexual relations. It concludes with a short chapter addressing Islamic etiquettes and practises pertaining to newlyweds on their first night.
“I have found this work to be beneficial and highly informative, and strongly recommend the study of this book to all prospective couples, and indeed, to all couples.” – Mufti Zubair Bayat, Director: Darul Ihsan centre, Durban, South Africa
“I highly recommend this excellent, thorough book by Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam on an important and sensitive topic that many–if not most–Muslim couples are woefully unaware of.” – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, Seekers Guidance.
“This guide essentially aimed at Muslims reveals a surprisingly liberal view on sexuality considering many of the rules and etiquettes for matrimonial relationship were established 1400 years ago. Modern psychosexual medicine has been a relatively young member of the field of medicine and echoes much of the Islamic view contained in this book. Muslims will no doubt be surprised by some of the legal rulings regarding intimate relationships between the married couple which has in essence removed many cultural concretions that have distorted the original concepts. This is a thorough and essential guide for scholars, doctors and other practitioners of psychosexual health care as well as couples and answers thoroughly many scenarios pertinent to conjugal relations in the modern day.” – Dr Khalid Ghufoor, Consultant Surgeon

Mashallah if I could give 100 stars I honestly would. I previously purchased the handbook of a healthy muslim marriage off of Amazon (save yourself the hassle and buy the bundle from here. The handbook and this book $23.95 USD didnt know about it until now.) and this book was mentioned in the chapter of intimacy. I got 2 copies one for myself and the other for a cousin who's engaged to be married soon inshallah as I feel she'll need it more then I do. From what I've seen we tend to shy away from talking about intimacy as a whole and when fiancées become newlyweds they're thrown into it and expected to "figure it out on their own". This book I feel takes away some of the pressure and gives you the reality of the situation instead of what some may expect from the illicit scenes in music videos movies and whatever else. I'd recommend anyone this book even if the marriage has been going on for decades. It discusses so many different topocs that there's something for everyone in the audience.
Im not married yet but have gained so much knowledge from it that I feel mentally/emotionally prepared for it when the time comes. I think people always wonder how are they meant to know about marriage/ intimacy etc. without doing what the non-Muslims do and I would say this is the answer. Take the books from those with islamic knowledge and learn what you need to know without having to be worried of your modesty. Then when the time comes there won't be this tiptoe dance or absurd expectations of so.. whats next? May Allah bless and reward those who put their time and effort in these 2 books and may he allow many more to benefit from it inshallah.
