/he title of this essay !egins with the words 0Creating pleasure and
intimacy and in the !ody of this essay * will !e discussing this topic
in two ways. 1ou might ha2e already guessed that this essay is a!out
re+indling romance. intimacy and passion !etween hus!and and wife in
the !edroom. *f you did you are right and this aspect will !e discussed
second. /he first aspect of the topic of creating pleasure and intimacy
in 3uslim marriages is to e4amine this topic from a fundamental point
of 2iew of what. in the sight of ,od. is pleasure.
Pleasure is an intangi!le. *t5s not a physical o!6ect. *t5s a
metaphysical attri!ute of human e4perience and in general life
e4perience. Pleasure is not only confined to humans. 72en animals can
e4perience pleasure. Pleasure is attached to the e4perience of life and
life is the creation of ,od. /he !est way to understand pleasure at the
fundamental le2el is to understand creation at the fundamental le2el.
/he fundamental le2el affects e2erything in the uni2erse. *n this
regard ,od has gi2en us +nowledge in the 8uran. ,od says in 2erse $9 of
the :1
surah of the 8uran that e2erything is created in pairs and in
this regard we must ta+e into consideration that creation is not only
material o!6ects li+e gold. sil2er. roc+s. water. etc !ut also the
intangi!le things li+e taste. smell. lo2e. mercy. en2y. 6ealousy and
pride. /hese are also the creations of ,od. ;oth tangi!le and
intangi!le creations of ,od are go2erned !y the fundamental di2ine law
of creation in pairs.
'e can5t touch mercy !ut we feel it and ,od says in a hadith (report)
ta+en from Prophet 3uhammad that he created mercy into 1## parts and
sent one part into the present world and +ept 99 parts for <udgment
=ay. (;u+hari. 2olume >. !oo+ 76. hadith $76 and -ahih 3uslim. 2olume
$. !oo+ ?:. hadith 66?"). /his hadith (report) shows for the !elie2er
that mercy is indeed created. 3ercy must also follow the law of
creation. which says that e2erything is created in pairs. /hus there
must !e something else in creation that forms a pair with mercy. At
this point you must +now that there are two di2ergent +inds of pairs: a
complimentary pair and opposing pair. *n regard to mercy its
complimentary pair can !e things li+e !ara+at (!lessings) and its
opposing pair can !e wrath or punishment. Li+ewise Pleasure is also
another intangi!le thing that is the creation of ,od.
'ith humans taste of good food is among the most tal+ed a!out
e4periences in life. /asty food is source of pleasure. @ood is physical
!ut the pleasure in food is intangi!le and li+e mercy the pleasure of
food has its own complimentary pair as well. /he complimentary pair of
food is se4. @ood and se4 are primary pleasures of man+ind and they are
!oth intimately !ound up in many ways. 'e need food to sustain our !ody
and from the !iological point of 2iew consuming food means to get 2ital

1ou can notice that the 16 2erses are again di2ided to two sets of >
2erses !ecause in each set ,od descri!es two different sets of gardens
!ut they are similar in almost e2ery way. <annat is the final home of
the 3uslim and it is a perfected and !eautiful world.
* will discuss these descripti2e 2erses in two ways: @irstly. the
structure of Paradise and then the pleasures of Paradise. /he structure
of Paradise is two gardens. with two springs and trees that ha2e two
+inds of fruits. /he repetition of the pairs is the source of the
artistic !eauty and perfection of Paradise. A fitting word to descri!e
this !eauty is symmetry. Paradise is highly symmetrical. /he pleasures
of Paradise are the same in !oth sets of gardens and they too form a
pair of pleasures: the fruits which are pleasures of food and the women
which are the intimate pleasures of touch and sensuality.
People are also symmetrical: two eyes. two ears. two hands. two legs
and two !reasts. /he symmetry seen in human form is called !ilateral
symmetry !ecause the pairs are situated on either side of an imaginary
line of symmetry that runs from the centre of the forehead to !etween
the legs. 'e attach !eauty to human form !ecause of the symmetries we
see. 72en our actions can form e2ent symmetries. @or e4ample. parta+ing
of meals !egin at the lips and li+ewise romance and intimacy !egins
with a hus!andJs lips pressed against his wifeJs lips in a tender
in2iting +iss with !ismillah (*n the name of Allah) B a tantalising
appetiser leading to the main course G a spar+ling ri2er !eneath a
palace of erotic symmetries.
-ymmetries and pairings are in !oth the worlds. that is. in Paradise
and in the earth world !ut the symmetries in Paradise are more refined.
/he earthly symmetries are sometimes !ro+en symmetries.
-e4uality is 2ital in 3uslims marriages. *t must !e nurtured and
energised to +eep it producti2e and pleasura!le and to do these 3uslim
married spouses must engage each other with a positi2e frame of mind
and with passion pulsating through their minds and !odies. Aealthy
se4uality must !e complimented !y friendship and mutual respect !etween
married spouses. /he unhealthy is se4uality with misogyny and
su!6ugation. where men5s approach to their wi2es is solely to satisfy a
physical need in some mechanical fashion 2oid of romance and intimacy.

3arriage is the -unnah (personal tradition) of Prophet 3uhammad and the
prophet lead a simple life in de2otion to ,od. Ae used to pray so much
that his feet !ecame swollen while !owing !efore ,od. (;u+hari. Kolume
6. ;oo+ 6#. Aadith ?6#.) Ae fasted regularly and often did not ha2e
food in his home. Ae ga2e the greater portion of his wealth in charity
throughout his tenure as a prophet. 3uhammad did get married and his
wi2es were pious women who did their utmost in the ser2ice of *slam and
in helping the growing 3uslim Imma (nation). /hese are true a!out our
prophet and his wi2es whom we respectful call our mothers in *slam.
Aowe2er. there is another side to the prophet5s life and this side is
of romance. intimacy. se4iness and !eauty that some of us seldom hear
of. Inli+e other men who satisfied their physical need with their wi2es
in some mechanical fashion and were more concerned with !usiness or
amassing armies to fight. 3uhammad5s attitude to women was of en6oyment
and fondness of their softness.
Prophet 3uhammad en6oyed lying on his wife Aisha5s lap. -ometimes he
slept on her lap. (;u+hari. 2olume 6. !oo+ 6#. hadith 1?"). n other
occasions he would lie on her lap and recite the 8uran. (;u+hari.
2olume 1. !oo+ 6. hadith "96). /he lap is the upper leg B the thighs
which are soft and cur2y and cur2e they do inward. /hey are an o!6ect
of !eauty. /hese reports of 3uhammad lying on Aisha5s lap show that he
and she !oth identified with feminine !eauty and intimacy. *n another
report of the !eauty of slender legs Aisha said that when Prophet
3uhammad prayed in their home she stretched her legs in the direction
he prayed. As he came down for a prostration he touched her legs and
she would pull it !ac+. /hen after the prostration when 3uhammad stood
up again. while in the same prayer. she again stretched her legs in the
direction he prayed. (;u+hari. 2olume ". !oo+ "". hadith ?##). Aisha
also said that 3uhammad used to +iss his wi2es while fasting and she
added that if the se4ual organ gets a !it wet the fast must still !e
completed. (;u+hari. 2olume ?. !oo+ ?1. hadith 1$9). Another wife.
%aina!. mentioned that she and the prophet used to ta+e !aths together.
na+ed * presume. and they drew water from a single pot. (;u+hari.
2olume 1. !oo+ 6. hadith ?19). ne of his male companions informs that
when Prophet 3uhammad had 9 wi2es he used to go to all of them in a
single night and ha2e se4ual relations. (;u+hari. 2olume 7. !oo+ 6".
hadith 1$"). Aisha sheds more light on this se4iness with these words:
I scented Allah's Apostle and he went round (had sexual intercourse
with all his wives! (;u+hari. 2olume 1. !oo+ :. hadith "7#. translated
!y 3. 3uhsin Lhan). *n regard to the approach to intercourse there is
an interesting report that references an in2iting 2erse from the 8uran.
*n 7
century Ara!ia a group of people were under the !elief that if a
man has intercourse with his wife from the !ac+ then the child from
that union will !e sCuint eyed. Eesponding to this ,od re2ealed 2erse
""? of the "
surah ("
chapter) in the 8uran to the effect that your
wi2es are your plantation or place of culti2ation to approach whiche2er
way is pleasing. (;u+hari. 2olume 6. !oo+ 6#. hadith :1). /he
e4planation in the 2erse is not 6ust a refutation of the erroneous
!elief concerning the +neeling se4ual position of 2aginal intercourse
!ut it is also in2iting married spouses to e4plore other approaches and
we can interpret this purely physically or !oth physically and

;esides the pleasure of tasting good food the other physical 2alue of
food is its health and nutritional !enefit to satisfy hunger to gi2e
energy to the !ody. Prophet 3uhammad is reported ha2e said that food
for " people is sufficient for three and the food for three persons is
sufficient for four persons. (;u+hari. 2olume 7. !oo+ 6:. hadith ?#$
and -ahih 3uslim. !oo+ "?. hadith :1#>). *n yet another report Prophet
3uhammad is reported to ha2e said that food for one person suffices for
two persons and food for two persons suffices for four persons and food
for four persons suffices for eight persons. (-ahih 3uslim. !oo+ "?.
hadith :1#9 and :11"). 'hen food for two and three people !enefits more
than two and three people it is a sign that the food has !ara+at
(!lessing) from ,od. -e4 also has !enefit for humans as food does. !oth
in pleasure and for sustaining humans. -e4ual procreation in humans is
a shared e4perience. * imagine that se4ual union !etween hus!and and
wife is also a source of !ara+at. /he meal of a 3uslim !egins with the
prayer: "ismillah wa#"ar$atillah which means 0*n the name of Allah. and
the !lessings of Allah.5 Li+ewise 3uslim spouses should say the same
prayer when approaching each other romantically.
*n surah al ;aCarah ("
chapter of the 8uran) ,od gi2es an important
in6unction concerning the fasting month. Kerse 1>7 opens with these
%&'( 'It has )een made lawful for you to have sexual relations with
your wives on the night of As#Saum (*he fast+('
-o you can clearly understand the mercy and comfort of ,od in this
2erse. After a long day5s fast hus!ands and wi2es are permitted to
approach each other. *n Eamadan we fast and the fast means to a!stain
in the daytime from !oth food and se4. which are a connected pair of
pleasures created !y ,od. /he fast of Eamadan !rings the necessity for
food sharply into focus. At sunset we !rea+ the fast with food. /his is
the iftaar meal and for the iftaar great care is ta+en to prepare meals
of distinguished Cuality. *n a sense we rein2ent our lo2e for food. *n
thousands of 3uslim homes around the world 3uslims prepare the *ftaar
meal for families at sunset. -a2ouries and other delights are specially
prepared and the ta!le is set neatly. /he people ma+e wudhu and read
from the 8uran. *n some homes the smell of incense spreads throughout
the house. A prayer is read and then after the sun has set the fast is
traditionally !ro+en with dates or water. -weetened mil+ is ser2ed in
different 2arieties. After 7sha and optional tarawee salah. if we are
married. ,od gi2es permission for hus!ands to approach wi2es. * li+en
this intimate approach to the wife as a pri2ate second iftaar. As we
ta+e great care and in preparing the first iftaar * !elie2e the same
attention and care must !e ta+en in pri2ate life !etween married 3uslim
spouses. * am as+ing 3uslim married couples to recei2e this permission
of intimacy during the nights of Eamadan with romance and tenderness as
our !elo2ed prophet was romantic and tender.
'hen you ma+e the first iftaar the food passes through the lips. Lips
are the folding of tissue and s+in around the mouth opening. /he food

against a sensiti2e organ called the clitoris from which the wife
en6oys se4ual pleasure. Now compare the pairs !etween the two iftaars
that the wife en6oys: two lips for mouth and two lips for 2agina.
Pleasure of food en6oyed on the sensiti2e tongue and pleasure in se4
en6oyed on the sensiti2e clitoris and a!o2e this is a pair of humans. a
hus!and and wife. in se4ual union who each feel pleasure. Pairs upon

from this system. Life is created and sustained !y this system and

opposing pair. which is pain !ut with the right +ind of mathematics.

And with these two short messages !etween hus!and and wife the romantic
date was set.

message and sends it to his wife. 3asoodah 2ia sms. /he following te4ts

And with these short messages !etween hus!and and wife the romantic
Eamadan date was set.
Aere is another e4ample of how to initiate a romantic date !etween
3uslim hus!and and wife: 3oulana @aisal is the resident moulana
attached to the mus6id (mosCue) in a small town at the foothills of the
=ra+en)!urg 3ountain Eange. Ais main duty is to lead the congregation
in far) salah (compulsory formal prayer). Ae also teaches the young
3uslim children in the mosCueJs madressa. Ae is not alone and his wife
Layla also teaches in the same madressa !eside him.
n the first fast of Eamadan a fi2e year old girl is attending her
madressa class. Appa Layla called her and said to her. /2o )y the
<oulana and tell him to give the fi=h $ita) (!oo+)(/
/he little girl wal+ed across the room and greeted the moulana. MAs
Salaalm mu alai$um <oulana! and moulana responded. 6a alai$um salaam(!
-he then said. /Appa says you must give the fi=h $ita)(/
3oulana got out his pen and wrote a short note on a piece of paper. Ae
then folded the paper. pulled the fiCh +ita! from the shelf. and placed
the folded note in the +ita! !ut left the !ottom end of the note
stic+ing out of the +ita! to draw attention to it. Ae then said to the
girl. /*a$e this to appa and as$ her to give the hadith $ita)(/
/he little girl wal+ed across the room and ga2e the +ita! to appa
Layla. /hen she said. /<oulana said you must give him the hadith
$ita)/. Appa Layla then too+ the fiCh +ita! in her hand. opened the
folded note and read it. /he note read: /the flower grows )ut the
petals are closed to the sunlight(/ After reading the note appa Layla
called the little girl again and placed a reply note in the hadith

3oulana @aisal recei2ed the hadith +ita!. opened the reply note and
read his wife5s reply. *t said: /the flower )looms nocturnally(/ Ae
smiled after reading the reply. and with these two short messages
!etween hus!and and wife the date was set.

3uslim married couples can use Eamadan to rein2ent and re+indle romance
and se4uality drawing their se4iness from the 8uran and the unBsinful
e4amples of intimacy from our *slamic heritage. 'i2es can !e acti2e in

optional and if a married man chooses to stay in the 3osCue for iti+af
then during those nights this 2erse from the 8uran prohi!its him from
approaching his wife for se4ual relations. All this is good and well
and functional to communicate the laws and limits of ,od to his
!elie2ing ser2ants !ut ,od does not stop at these ordinances. /here is
more in the 2erse. Ae writes another descripti2e statement. !efore the

portion of this 2erse has nothing to do with laws and limits. 'hat is
stated in this middle portion of the 2erse is nothing short of erotic
imagery from the di2ine re2elation. ,od says to the !elie2ing world:
'ila nisa-i-kum hunn-na libasun lakum', which is translated as '.our
wives are your garments'. Li!as. which is an Ara!ic word. ta+en from
this same 2erse. (see li!asun a!o2e) means co2erings. clothing or

After this erotic imagery the 2erse continues with: 'wa#antum li)asun

saying that the hus!ands too are garments for their wi2es. which again
is erotic imagery.
