For a Successful and Happy Marriage:

Enjoying Married Life the Halal Way

Thankfully, the beauty of undertaking Islamic activities with one’s spouse as a form of leisure, is that there is great benefit and blessings in “mixing business with pleasure”!

Remembering God in the Natural Outdoors

Whether it is attending late-night cocktail parties at clubs, bars or elitist hotels with other couples, watching adult-themed films at home in bed, or hitting the theaters to catch the trending blockbusters, newlyweds sometime end up committing sins together in the name of romance, enjoyment and leisurely entertainment. They allow themselves to become heedless of God and the limits of Islam whilst blissfully riding the wave of youthful euphoria and gushy romance following their marriage.

The fact is that there are many alternative options for having fun with your spouse the halal way. Even better are those modes of enjoyment that combine the worship and remembrance of God with leisure and relaxation.

It would not just be more enjoyable to go picnicking, hiking, bicycling, kayaking, snorkeling, camping, or sailing - taking in the lovely, sprawling natural outdoors - but such outings will also rejuvenate the couple’s faith in God by allowing them to gaze at and admire the natural beauty that He has spread out through the earth...

Marriage ... What Does That Mean to You?

After coming to Islam, it is very important to focus on your iman (faith), dive head first into Islam and work on a relationship between you and God before even contemplating a relationship with another person. You must learn that God is the only One who will never let you down, who will guide you and give you direction in this life leading you to a pious righteous husband or wife.

Having such a strong developed relationship with God will teach you not to depend on those around you and that God is the only one who can and has the power to help you.

Work on your religion before working on your marriage this is the most sound and cherished advice I ever had as a new Muslim and I hope it serves you as well as it did me, Alhamdulilah...

Ten Ways to Avoid Marrying the Wrong Person

There is a right way and a wrong way to get to know someone for marriage. 

The wrong way is to get caught up in the excitement and nuance of a budding relationship and in the process completely forget to ask the critical questions that help determine compatibility. 

One of the biggest mistakes that many young Muslims make is rushing into marriage without properly and thoroughly getting to know someone...

If you or someone you know is in the “getting to know someone” phase,  the following guide offers advice on exactly what to look for and avoid:

1) Do Not Marry Potential


Oftentimes men consider marrying a woman hoping she never changes while a woman considers marrying a man she hopes she can change.  This is the wrong approach on both accounts.  Don’t assume that you can change a person after you’re married to them or that they will reach their potential.  There is no guarantee, after all, that those changes will be for the better...

2) Choose Character over Chemistry

While chemistry and attraction are no doubt important, character precedes them both...

3) Do Not Neglect The  Emotional Needs of Your Partner

Both men and women have emotional needs and in order for a partnership to be successful those needs must be mutually met. The fundamental emotional need of a woman is to be loved.  The fundamental emotional need of a man is to be respected and appreciated...

4) Avoid Opposing Life Plans

In marriage you can either grow together or grow apart. Sharing a common purpose in life will increase the chance that you will grow together...

5) Avoid Pre-Marital Sexual/Physical Activity...

6) Avoid Lack of Emotional Connection...

7) Pay Attention to Your Own Emotional Anxiety: Choosing someone you don’t feel safe with emotionally is not a good recipe for a long-lasting and loving marriage...

Improving Communication Between Muslim Spouses

Every marriage goes through a unique set of challenges, because every married couple in this world is one-of-a-kind.

As the years pass after tying the nuptial knot, if the communication problems between a husband and his wife are not resolved in time, they can cause permanent damage and irreversibly affect their relationship.

This in turn will have an impact on the character-building and moral upbringing of their children.

There are many steps that spouses can undertake to improve their communication with each other. By trial and error, i.e. by applying different methods at different times and in different situations, they can come up with a workable solution for eliminating their emotional distance and indifference at any phase in life.

Deep Conversations

Most of the time, the most effective form of communication is talking to each other frankly and openly via a deep, uninterrupted conversation, in order to resolve a problem. However, this method might not be applicable at all times, especially if one spouse is totally unwilling to listen or talk to the other...
