First Online Islamic Sex Shop Open For Business

It was allowed, he learned, as long as the products were halal and meant to improve sex within marriage. “There is even a fatwa on the subject.” That just left the problem of how to tell his parents…

    Having a sex related shop is good but with other countries it’s not good to make up or to starting up a business like this.Usually those shops are hidden from the public because of the culture differences of the different countries.
