The purpose of this presentation is to present the historical significance of prostitution and the role of eunuchs in Islamic history in conjunction with the fictional depictions found in Craig Thompson’s romantic, graphic novel Habibi. The story takes place in an fictional Islamic world, illustrating a controversial romance between former child slaves. The goal of my presentation is to explore Islamic sexual jurisprudence and how this fictional novel explores controversial practices throughout history. I will provide information regarding lawful and unlawful sexual conduct according to the Islamic laws of sexuality which rely heavily on the Qur’an and other religious leaders.
