With the media awash with lurid representations of Islam’s sexual politics, this timely panel discussion hopes to offer a more level-headed assessment to promote better understanding of sex and relationships within the religion. There are tough questions to ask about Islam’s attitudes towards contemporary sexual practices, the relationship between the sexes, sex before marriage, masturbation, homosexuality and more.
Featuring Shanon Shah, Imam Alyas Karmani, Lancaster University’s Shuruq Naquib and moderator Abdul-Rehman Malik, our panel will explore these complex questions as they look frankly at sex and Islam. They’ll touch on inequality, inclusion and exclusion, as well as LGBT issues and where they fit within the sexual and emotional dynamics of Islam, and what sex and sexuality mean for Muslims of any orientation in their day-to-day observation of their faith.
It’s everything you ever wanted to know about sex and Islam (but were too afraid to ask).
