In Malaysia, sexual health education is taught various subjects namely Islamic Education, Moral Education, Science, Additional Science and Biology. Teachers are not enthusiastic to deliver the right message on sexual health education. The topic is considered as taboo, which causes the teaching process to become incomplete, lack of depth and insufficient. The Islamic Education teachers were found not to have related the topic on a wider scale concerning sexual issues within the Islamic context. The present study examined the attitudes of Islamic Education teachers regarding sexual health education elements in secondary schools. The respondents of the study included 10 Islamic Education teachers using semi structured interview. The study has generated important empirical findings. This information is important to facilitate the comprehensive sexual health education in Malaysian schools.
