Sex education is a very sensitive subject—parents find it difficult to speak to their children about this subject, yet are skeptical that teachers can tackle this issue correctly. This book deals with the subject from an Islamic viewpoint: focusing on the Islamic attitude to sexuality and sexual etiquette, giving guidance to parents concerned about sex education in schools, and looking at human sexuality. Aids, contraception, and abortion are dealt with in an informative manner. References from the Qur'an and the Ahadith are also included. Sex Education is essential reading for parents, teens, and teachers!
