In a general theme of praise to christians, the Quran refers to the matter of celibacy stating that it was not decreed by God:

"Then in their wake (referring to Abraham and Noah) we followed them up with (others of) Our apostles; We sent after them Jesus the son of Maty, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy: but the celibacy (and monasticism) which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them. (We commanded) only the seeking for the good pleasure of God. And they did not regard it as they should have done." (57:27)

Islam not only accepts and acknowledges the existence of the human sexual drive, but in fact lauds this drive as a creation from God. However, there is nothing in the universe that can exist entirely without restriction or boundary, and everything must be regulated in a proper way.

We see that the human sexual drive is something that Allah takes credit for Himself it is not a sin to have sexual drive, and is not the result of some state of falleness or sin. In a hadeeth we read from Imam as-Sadiq (as):

Indeed, Allah (swt) created Adam from clay, then created Eve from him. This was because the woman follows [temporally, in creation] f ...more
