A few years ago, at the behest of my mother, I attended a Muslim marriage event in Glasgow. These are events where Muslim men and women meet for the purpose of seeking an ideal marriage partner. At the event, there were around five women to every man.
Islamic sexual jurisprudence is a part of Islamic family jurisprudence that concerns the Islamic laws of sexuality in Islamas largely predicated on the Qur'anthe sayings of Muhammad hadith and the rulings of religious leaders' fatwa confining sexual activity to marital relationships between men and women.

In Islam, prohibitions against extramarital sex are strong and permissible marital sexual activities are familiar subjects.
My friend, late Haji Yusuf Husayn Sheriff of Arusha Tanzania had asked me to deliver a lecture on the subject of Hijab Purdah at the 8th annual seminar of the Golden Crescent Group, which was to be held at Lushoto on the 22nd and 23rd October At that time I was busy making arrangements for our hajj journey and wanted to be excused.
