Sexual Issues in Modern Era

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Islam subjects human passions and desires in the service of noble goals such as obedience to Almighty Allah which generates, in life, values of love, virtue, truth and integrity. Those steeped in sensual pleasures and who are slaves to their blind passions, are doomed to life of deprivation and restlessness, for carnal desires, once rampant become insatiable. The appetite increases with every effort to satisfy it resulting in a craze for the maximisation of sensual pleasure. Such an attitude to life is not conducive to progress either materially or spiritually. Humanity cannot approach higher levels of nobility and virtue unless it is free from the dominance of blind carnal appetite.In his approach to moral problems, the writer has adequately dealth with the burning issues of sexual morality in Islam, highlighting the extent to which Islamic value systems serve as a protective mechanism against the promiscuous modern western society.Mufti Allie Haroun Sheikh is an outstanding research scholar, prolific writer and dynamic lecturer.
