Sex, a human innate disposition, is a basic need for the survival of human race. Islam, which acknowledges this intrinsic want, sets up the institution of marriage as the main proper channel to meet such want and to lead a virtuous and calm life. (the Qur’an, 30: 21). In marriage, two souls are united together so that they may enjoy tranquillity and stability with sincere love, mercy, and harmony. The teachings of Islam portray an image of male-female equality. Integral to this policy of egalitarianism is to empower women at different societal levels, including generating awareness of sexual rights and duties, the lawful as well as the prohibited. This study in brief delineates the salient features of women and child sexual empowerment within the specific epistemic and cultural soil of Islamic tradition. The selected collections of hadith reports are taken from jami‘ al-Usoul fi Ahadith al-Rasoul by Ibn al-Ath Ibn al-Athīr. the linchpin of Islamic sexual empowerment or education is to staunchly advocate decency and maintain morality in the relationship of the two sexes in private and in public.
