Keywords:Sex education, teenage pregnancy, Islam, Marriage
Sex education for children and youth is a sensitive but important aspect of their learning. At present, Muslim children are getting secular sex education at schools and get the wrong message about sex from the media. In this article the pros and cons of American sex education as related to Islamic concepts of sexuality and marriage are discussed. A curriculum is proposed for Islamic sex education to be given at home or Sunday Islamic school.
