A much needed manual, this useful book draws from Islamic sources to provide practical advice for a Muslim couple. Far from the sociological analysis or list of rules that fill other books about Islamic marriage, this book draws from the wisdom of the sunnah to show one how to love your partner in this life and prepare each other for the next. Written with plenty of real life experience (and even humor) from Muslims living in the West, the author balances the issues of male-female differences, respect for each other’s rights and needs and raising God-conscious children. A must read for anyone interested in marriage.
Modern life especially brings strains and pressures which can upset even the most compatible relationship. This means that, nowadays, to protect the spirit of cooperation and happiness which is the sign of the true Islamic marriage, careful thought needs to be given to the mechanisms which help husband and wife to live together and respect each other’s rights.
This highly readable book takes the reader through the relevant passages in the Quran and hadith (Islamic sources), and goes on to discuss the main social and economic problems that can afflict relationships, suggesting many practical ways in which these can be resolved.
