Islamic values and the family system - Isolation vs. Integration in a new country

Dr Nooria Mehraby

The core system of many Islamic cultures is characterised by a hierarchical system of intimate relationships within the extended family and Islamic communities. Islamic culture is group oriented and individuals live in a symbiotic relationship. There are certain role expectations, strong family ties and each individual is expected to obey his/her role. Islam prohibits celibacy as a form of religious practice. Sex is considered a core value, a blessing from God, pleasurable, spiritual and a duty of each Muslim. Sex is only allowed in within marriage with an emphasis on commitment and responsibility towards spouse and children.
