10 Tips for a Thriving Marriage

3. Commitment

Sometimes we believe that marriage should come equipped with autopilot. And that everything should automatically function and take us along the scenic path we all anticipate.

But marriage requires commitment, in the form of your time, your focus, and both your mental and emotional priorities.

The reality of it is that marriage takes time and requires work, and the fruit of it will only be as sweet as the time we take to harvest and nurture it.

Tip: Take 10 minutes of every Sunday to plan out your week. No, I don’t mean your work and errands schedule. Instead, to work on a plan on how you’ll dedicate a portion of each day to your spouse, and what you will do for them, towards them, and with them.

4. Lower Your Expectations

When we expect so much from others in life, they are bound to fall short of such.

Many of us are taught and lead to believe that getting married will solve everything in life, that it will fill every void present in our hearts, and that it will suffice for everything we need in life.

Many studies have shown that such high expectations increase the likelihood of an unfulfilled marriage. Instead lower your expectations and increase your happiness.

Tip: Start your marriage with a small cup, as it’ll be a lot easier to fill...

4 Tips for Stronger Family Ties

For busy families that are often apart for long hours of the day, making an extra effort to spend quality time together is important.

Ideally, this should be done daily, especially if children are still young and live with and depend on their parents for recognition, praise and a sense of belonging.

Enjoying dinner together is a simple way to spend quality family time, bearing in mind that parents should get rid of their stress and worries and other negative emotions before the dining session while communicating to their children. This also shows that they appreciate the presence of their children after a hectic day at work.

Sharing positive stories is a good way to strengthen family relations. If a member of the family is facing a problem, whether at school or at work, then it can also be shared.

A golden rule is that everyone positively pitches in with constructive solutions to help resolve the challenge. This makes family time a “safe” time, providing a secure venue for family members to voice their concerns, knowing that they are within a circle of support...

Is Happiness in Marriage a Matter of Luck?

How can a couple ensure happiness in their marriage?

Rida Beshir and Ekram Beshir, the renowned marriage counselors and best-selling authors of “Blissful Marriage: A Practical Islamic Guide” wrote:

“There are tried and proven recipes for a successful marriage.” Very appropriately, they call them the “Seven Essential C’s” and the “Seven Magical S’s”.

The Seven Essential C’s are:

Commitment, courtesy, communication, care, contentment, contribution, and compromise.

And the Seven Magical S’s are:

Sensitivity, sincerity, security, support, satisfaction, sharing, and sexual gratification.

According to the Beshirs, this list is not exhaustive, for there are “Five Wonderful A’s” which, if applied, can make a marriage more fulfilling...

Cherish Your Wife the Prophet’s Way (Video & 10+ Hadiths)

In Islam, the relationship between husband and wife is a strong bond to be nurtured with kindness, love and mercy.

6 Secrets to a Happy Marriage

Stay Positive

Trust me there will be times when you feel like giving up.

During times of anger you might even threaten divorce.

Firstly, try to control your anger. Anger comes from Shaytan.

Secondly, when you make mistakes – just like you repent to Allah – try to make it up to your partner.

Mercy, mercy, mercy.

Mercy is so much more important than love. Love is a feeling, mercy is a choice. Mercy others if you expect Allah to mercy you.

How grateful I am for our paths to cross. How blessed I am to have you in my life. How honored I am, to be yours and spend this journey with you...
