The books teach the Islamic intercourse with its rules and prohibitions. Like a prohibition doing sex in a certain position, in a certain time, or in a certain place.

The study uses literature study method, from the main literature of the two books above. The research question is how the pesantren world see its disability and how to response it. The significance of this study is to know how the world view of pesantren and the dynamics of disability is still a curse because of the punishment for people who violate a rule, the rule when performing sexual intercourse. I argue that many people from pesantren world see children with disabilities because of their parents. This will disrupt the harmony of the household if a spouse gives birth to a disabled child because it will be considered as a punishment.
