Are there any books in English which describe in detail sexual techniques and positions without compromising the religion in terms of nudity etc.?

Muslim doctors are allowed to look at all parts of the body when students and in the job, so why can't we look at such in a book perhaps in a diagram anatomically as photos would be a bit too far.

Sexual Positions. How are you supposed to know these (the Qur'an 2:223 says you can go to your wife in any position). Perhaps the book could have matchstick or cartoon type drawings of man and woman without being explicit.

I would be surprised if no such book exists.

  • First photographs and drawings are considered as haram by the majority of scholars. There are books by Muslim scholars on this issue describing what you ask about with enough details.

Is there a halal sex guide for Muslims?

Yes. Muslim American Community Association lists a book named Islamic Guide To Sexual Relations written by Mufti Mubammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari.

The book claims to discuss sexual relations exhaustively in light of the teachings of the Qur'an, Sunna, reference works from the four Sunni Schools of Islamic law, and other works of classical and contemporary scholars.

A page of that book: enter image description here

Yes: Enjoy Amazing Halal Sex!: Great Sex Keeps The Heart Of Marriage Alive, Layla Rashid, 2014:

Enjoy Amazing Halal Sex shows you how AMAZING sex can be. Explore and discover the pleasures of the flesh, Halal-style. (amazon.com)

The first sex guide that shows you how to enjoy sex in a halal manner. It contains over tons of different ways for you the husband and wife to have and enjoy amazing sex that'll keep your marriage healthy, happy and sexually satisfying. (createspace)

This goes into details about the mechanics and biology and keeping halal.


There are 2 books written by Irfan Ullah Khan that deal with the matters related to sexual life in the light of Quran and Sunnah. Here are the 2 books:

  1. The Halal Sex Guide: https://happymuslimfamily.org/halal-sex-guide/

  2. Better Love with Better Half: https://happymuslimfamily.org/better-love-with-better-half/

The book "The Halal Sex Guide" discusses how to spice up the sex life from the practical point of view, whereas "Better Love with Better Half" deals mostly with sharai matters and fiqh opinions though it also has some chapters on tips and techniques.

Hope that answers the question.


you can check the book Couples Sex Guide with Demonstrated Sex Positions it is not specifically halal but it has detailed explanations and more than 100 demonstrated sex positions by couples in shorts, therefore no nudity. personally for us we were a mature couple and were recommended by a friend, and it is true, you get the appropriate knowledge without the nudity. good luck

    In islam, every muslim is Obliged Only to stick to Halal and Never haram , in any case. Commented Nov 23, 2016 at 13:24

There are now many sexual guides for Muslims. We cannot enumerate all of them. We are authors of a self-help ebook on the subject, you can find it on Amazon as well as other sources. There is a lot of good content out there but it is all text-based. Given that we live and learn visually, we invested in a couple of hundred illustrations to complement the text. The title is "The Perfumed Garden 2 : A Sensual Spiritual Sex Manual" by Ali Dada and Laila Din. Check it out. We also have a blog with related posts at theperfumedgarden2.wordpress.com
