Divorced People: Why Love is Blind

By Abdur-Rehman
A single-page article cannot address the issue of divorced people or those who have lost their loved ones after they got married. A single page paper cannot truly analyze the reason of why love is really blind in some cases which end up in marriage. But what I would like to do is just give my reflections of why things such as divorces happen and also why certain people who are not meant for each other do end up getting married. In some cases, you find them staying together …

Marriage: Why We Are Failing

By Abdur-Rehman
We always hear stories in our communities of the Muslims and their marriage problem. In fact, these stories have gotten worse and more drama like as the years pass. We hear stories of our sisters who had such high expectations of marriage and they end up with really whack husbands. We hear about our brothers and their wives who cheat on them and destroy their lives. We hear even a third category: people who marry depressing people who have had bad pasts. And after years and years of one …

Fiqh of L♥ve – A P☻em

By Anonymous
From the words of the Lord above, watching us,
Shaikh Waleed came to NY to teach us the Fiqh of Love,
He had some goals for us, to appreciate the work of the scholars,
To get results in our lives, become better spouses and followers.
The Prophet as a husband, the fact that he is our best example,
In every aspect of his life, he had extremely high credentials,
He married all his wives for elevated reasoning, not similar to the cats today,
Even in expressing love for our wives, we barely follow his way.
He told …

How to Transform Yourself Into ‘Mrs. Right’

As a sister raised in the western world, it is not uncommon to see how many of us are not married by a certain age, as it is required of most of us. In addition there are reverts whom after conversion are immediately counseled to marry, and regardless have trouble finding a spouse. The statistics of the amount of single Muslimah’s is steadily rising, surprisingly not only in the Western countries, but in the Arab countries as well. This is an issue which the Ummah I personally believe should address …

The D☻wer (M♥hr)

By Sister Areefa
“And give the women [upon marriage] their [bridal] gifts graciously. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease.” (4:4) Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) orders man to give woman upon marriage, their gifts, or dower. The dower, or mah’r, is what is given to the bride by the groom for the purpose of marriage. It is a right to which every bride is entitled to and it is agreed between the two families or the groom and the guardian …

Top 10 Things You Need to Know About M♥rriage

1. If your job gets all your energy, the marriage withers.
If your job gets all of your energy, then it becomes your spouse’s competition and no one wants that. Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) created marriage for us so that we can enjoy each other permissibly. Not only can this bring us pleasure but it can also lead us to being rewarded by Our Creator! Take advantage of this. It’s a source of reward and happiness so don’t turn it into a source of sin and despair.
2. One of the greatest gifts you …

One Car, Two Drivers

Love.
Marriage.
Intimacy.
We Muslims know that we are unique in our perspectives when it comes to the topic of romance. Living in a world where western ideals are abundant and Muslims are already constituted as the minority, the superficial aspects of romance take precedence over the spiritual ones. This leaves Islam in its own category as Muslims are told to focus on the latter and not so much the former. Reserving the celebration of my love for my significant other for only one 12-hour day out of 365 days in the …
