Welcome to a new series where we ask the question: how do people from different religions have sex? This series is based on the official teachings of the religion, not what individuals might choose to do. As Muslim and Metro. Extramarital sex is a big no-no, but within marriage sex is considered to be positive and important.
Can you have sex before marriage?
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.
Islam has forbidden sexual intercourse during menstruation. Say: Menstruation is a discomfort for women. Do not establish sexual relations with them during the menses and do not approach them sexually until the blood stops.
