Abstract

OBJECTIVE:  To study the social and medical aspects of regulations specified for marital relation in Islam from a Quranic perspective and also to analyze the worldwide prevalence of AIDS. MATERIAL & METHODS:  Among 38 sub-Saharan African countries, the HIV Prevalence was quite low among the Muslim population of these countries. A survey of published articles containing data on HIV prevalence and the religious associations comparing the prevalence in the people from different backgrounds and analysis of the global key findings of WHO and UNAIDS report on HIV prevalence throughout the world was carried out. RESULTS:  The analysis of the global key points of WHO on HIV incidence and prevalence worldwide indicated a negative relationship between HIV prevalence and the Muslim population. Additional studies on the relationship of risk factors to HIV prevalence gave evidence of a negative effect on HIV prevalence by following Islamic codes of life. CONCLUSION: Islam gives us a complete code of life that is in favor of human nature. Homosexuality and short-term sexual relations have ruined the society in the West while Islam has strictly forbidden these things. Thus, Muslims should follow the teachings of Islam to avoid these serious emerging problems and to set a high standard and example for other nations.
