Qur'an Also, you may marry the chaste women among the believers, as well as the chaste women among the followers of previous scripture, provided you pay them their due dowries.You shall maintain chastity, not committing adultery, nor taking secret lovers. Only with their spouses, or those who are rightfully theirs, do they have sexual relations; they are not to be blamed.This was not there in North America before the Second World War.
