A scholarly exposition on the prominent place that sexuality and erotology enjoyed in traditional Islam. Divided into two parts; part one presents a critical examination of sexual ethics and part two consists of a conicse treatise on the art of seduction and lovemaking.
The central aim of the book argues that Islam is a sexually enlightened religion which teaches that sensuality should not be devoid of spirituality. The book also argues that the loss of sacred sensuality afflicting modern society can be reclaimed by a revival of the classic erotological tradition.
Drawing upon classical scholarship as well as the Qur'an and Hadith this book is certainly a highly sensitive, yet extremely important subject.
