Marriage: What makes it work?
The Islamic perspective on this popular topic reveals pertinent information that can help Muslims lead a life of peace and tranquility in the home. What are some practical ways to establish a marriage that is successful and pleasing to Allah? At a Florida retreat Alpha-Him Jobe, the late imam from New York, answers this question and addresses many of the related issues such as taqwa, justice, respect, wealth, beauty, prestige, compatibility, character, honourable intention, assessment, preparation, maturity, reasonable dowry, good will, love, compassion and leadership. The speaker’s knowledge, wit and engaging style result in a talk that can be of benefit to both married couples and those seeking marriage. Other topics discussed: pregnancy, marriage by choice not by force, marriage completing half of faith, seeing each other before marriage, and the wife helping in the support of the household.
