Question Raised By Muslim On First Ever 'Halal' Sex-Shop
Questions have been raised by Muslim on the launch of first ever 'Halal sex-shop. This issue is controversial in the Muslim territories. Muslims believe these are another seeds of evil sown by the Capitalist society of west. Hamza Yousuf, an American Islamic scholar and co-founder of Zaytuna College in Berkeley California, told Foreign Policy by phone," Muslim countries have all these but they do not advertise them. It all goes back to monetizing the religion." Turkey became the first country to introduce a so called "Islamic" online sex shop to sell 'halal' sex products. This is one of its kind to be introduced in Muslim society which was only to spark controversy. Haluk Murat Demeril, the founder of website, who wanted to launch a website for the purpose seeking advice on sex but content available on other websites is too explicit. Allah is aware of human needs including the need to fulfil sexual pleasure and thus create a bond of love called 'Nikah'. The sexual desire in humans is same as for shelter and hunger. The purpose of Islam is to satisfaction of needs of humans in a proper way in the light of noble teachings of Islam. The rules of Islam regarding sexual relations are only granted to married couples. Those outside wedlock are not allowed to undergo the same experience. The Quran and Hadith of Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Ahmad e Mujtaba (SAW) also clearly states that sex within the confines of marriage is not purely for procreation, as it is in some Christian Denominations.
