Islamically informed sex education is something the American Muslim community needs. Efforts and approaches like this one from Shaakira Abdul Razzaq, that seek to “infuse the Quran and Sunnah” into a spiritually conscious curriculum are what we need to invite to our masajid and community centers, not repackaged, spiritually uninformed liberal secular tripe with an “Islamic” label slapped on.
“The workshops called Sex Ed in the Mosque are presented over two days and promote abstinence by educating participants about the risks of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases associated with premarital sex. She says the workshops also focus on identifying life goals, self-empowerment and how poor decision-making could compromise their health, professional aspirations, and ultimately their relationship with God.”
Wow, how quaint! “Relationship with God”? I mean, who knew Islamic sex education could involve God?
