Would someone please enlighten us on the contents of these Muslim scriptures?

Don’t know about the Koran, but when my sons were 9yrs old and younger, we were traveling in Turkey. If my husband was not within reach for any reason, I had to to physically keep a hand on my sons to keep the men from oglying the boys and getting too close.
I traveled alone in Turkey when I was young, and was always treated with respect. I loved the coutry, but it was a totally different experience with my young sons.

I dont know, but as regards your children, I would kinda guess a lot of it is to do with the obvious consequences of having a society where access to women is so highly controlled. Heck, even the sight of women is highly controlled.

How can I put it delicately. The impulse to reproduce is very strong in all of Gods creatures, particularly the male. If access to females is made artificially difficult, the impulses are not satiated. And not everyone has the mental strength to subdue the baser animal instincts.
