How Marriage Can Enhance Your Productivity

Marriage is a two-way street; it’s not that each person puts in 50-50, but rather both husband and wife need to put in 100% of their effort to make it work.

You will be half of that marriage and so you should learn about how you can be the best spouse for a successful marriage. If you focus on learning and fulfilling your own duties, then your rights will be fulfilled too.

Ultimately, this is not just a matter of ensuring a happy marriage – this is a matter of the Ummah. A happy couple leads to a happy and strong family and therefore emphasis is placed on a successful and strong Ummah which is better for our world insha Allah. 

The family is indeed the core of our community and so the decision of choosing the most suitable spouse and the efforts made to ensure a lasting marriage is highly important.

Now that we’ve discussed the importance of marriage as enhancing one’s productivity, here are a few steps in the formula towards a productive married life...

Marrying a New Muslimah

Undermine Differences by Focusing on the Positives

Will marrying a new Muslim wife turn out to be a boon, or bane, for a Muslim man?

That greatly depends upon the way he perceives, reacts to, and capitalizes on the supposed “differences” between them both...

By loving and respecting his new Muslim wife, and helping her grow in faith the way a farmer nurtures a weak young seedling till it becomes a tall, strong, deeply-rooted and sturdily planted tree, the wise Muslim husband will be planting permanent fruits of righteousness superseding geographical and ethnic boundaries of color, caste and culture.

What could be more in accordance with Islam than becoming that basic link that joins together two families of different origins and cultures, which becomes the ‘doorway’ of demonstrating to them the all-inclusive teachings of this beautiful Deen?

The Goodbye Hug - Part 1

 In this mini-series, we hope to shed light on the beauty that exists in many Muslim marriages.

Here is just one glimpse of a Muslim couple who truly appreciate the small gestures of love between them. I’ll let the wife tell her story:

“Every morning, my husband gets up, goes and prays fajr (morning prayer) in the masjid, comes home, gets ready for work, and then we have a special goodbye hug before he leaves for the day. That hug energizes both of us for the day and we know it is a very special moment...

The Love Letter - Part 2

8 Things to Enhance Marital Relationship

According to the Quran, the purpose of marriage is to attain sukun (tranquility and peace), which can never be achieved through impulsive sexual fulfillment unless it is accompanied by mutual love, affection, caring, and sharing, which are all part and parcel of a fulfilling and productive marriage relationship.

Islam, as we know it holistically from the sources, is a balanced way of looking at things.

Following are the 8 important factors that can in sha’ Allah strengthen a marriage relationship in Islam:

1.    Good Attitude

A Muslim must always have a positive attitude toward life. We say, “Alhamdulillah” (Praise be to Allah) for whatever He gives us (or doesn’t give us).

2.    Help

Our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) stressed the importance of men helping their wives and Allah tells us the importance of women being mates and helpers to their husbands. This is a real “win-win” situation, if we just follow it.

3.    Trust

Muslims, men and women are ordered to be trustworthy and follow the example of our prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as the “Trustworthy”.

4.    Respect

You get respect, when you give respect. This is mandatory for all Muslims toward all people, how much more toward the spouse?

5.    Joy

Our prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to entertain his wife Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) and she used to play and race with him. She said, “I used to out-run him, but then when I got heavy he used to outrun me”. He told us to play with our wives and have some fun...
