The answers on are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can view Ikram Hawramani's credentials on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.

IslamQA: The Islamic view of being asexual

Is being asexual a bad thing? I feel as if I do not have any sexual desires. I would marry but I wouldn't want to do those things, I personally would want to have fun and basically nonsexual things with my spouse.

Marriage and sexual activity are optional rather than compulsory in Islam. If you let your future spouse know that you are not interested in sexual activity and if they are fine with that then there is no issue with it from an Islamic perspective.

And God knows best.
