Marriage: What makes it work?

Alpha-Him Jobe


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.

    Al-Humdulillah hi Rabbil Alameen.

    I knew the late Imam Alpha-Him, and he was a sea of knowledge-not only in words but in action. In the short time Allah ta’ala had him amongst the Muslims in New York and elsewhere he brought the true spirit of this Deen. Everyone- regardless of ethnicity, loved him as though he was their family member. We miss you Sheikh Alpha-Him and will never forget the contribution you have made to the Ummaat. I hope you can get more of his speeches, Inshallah.

    Inna lillahi wa ilaihi raji’oon. May Allah bless Imam Alpha-Him ruh and grant him Jannahtul Firdausi.
    Masha Allah he spoke the truth about marriage.
    This lecture is very valuable for all the Muslims brothers, sisters and family. The Imam explained the word “ability” from the sunnah of our beloved Prophet SWA very well and clear. I was blessed with a great marriage full with of love, compassion and mercy for 19yrs. My husband has returned to Allah swt. Even with a great experience that I had, it is a struggle to find a life partner. That is a reality many of us facing these days the fact many Muslims are in a state of confusion.
    To all my Muslim brothers and sisters who is listening to this lecture, listen carefully and learn it well and practice it , Insha Allah you will be bless with a good Islamic marriage.

    “Live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If you take a dislike to them, it may be that you dislike a thing while Allah brings about through it a great deal of good.” Qur’an 4:19
    The Prophet (saws) said:
    “The most hateful of all lawful things, in the sight of Allah, is divorce.”
    Always talk to avoid misunderstandings

    Beautiful lecture, ما شاء الله – as ALLĀH willed. I have never heard of him before, but from what I assume from the above comments and this video, he was on-point. رحمه الله رحمة واسعة وأسكنه فسيح جناته – May ALLĀH have Mercy upon him and place him in HIS expansive Jannahs.
