About The Book

A Taste of Honey provides a scholarly exposition on the prominent place that sexuality and erotology enjoyed in traditional Islam. The book is divided into two parts; part one presents a critical examination of sexual ethics and part two consists of a concise 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 the Qur'an, Hadith and traditional erotological literature, the book follows the style and composition of classic Eastern and Afro-Arab love texts like the Kama Sutra and Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti's erotic treatises. A Taste of Honey is a thought-provoking work on a highly sensitive, yet extremely important subject.
