OVERVIEW

Getting married or even maintaining a relationship within husband and wife is becoming more pressured due to various circumstances. In-laws, kids, financial situations or even cultural barriers can get in the way. Getting the right people involved in arbitration can also be tricky at times, and we forget the essence of why we got into this relationship to start with. Islam emphasizes the beauty of this relationship as completing half of your deen.

THE ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE

In the Qur’an, the marriage relationship is described as one with “tranquility,” “love” and “mercy.” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) kept reminding us in his traditions on how gentle and kind we need to treat our wives and how obedient we need to be with our husbands. It is a highly recommended sunnah to please each other sexually and to be the garments of each other. When things don’t work out, there are many alternatives to find the means to make things work, however, divorce is permissible and should be taken seriously and be the last alternative if no other solution prevails.

MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE WHATS THE ISSUE:

Young Muslim couples nowadays face many obstacles in their way, and try to find ways in trying to get an answer that everyone can understand. The truth is that parents often get in the way, cultural traditions are seen with more precedence than Islamic Sunnahs, and as a result, the blessing is taken away. Sometimes, between husband and wife, there are too many people who influence the mindset of the spouse which leads them to believe in an untruthful perspective. Divorce amongst Muslims are at an all-time high, and couples are now finding themselves in large debt that they cannot get out of. Islam preaches simplicity and open conversation and allow proper mediation that serve the two people who matter the most.  Most importantly, to serve and protect any children they may have had with each other.

MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE WHATS THE ISSUE:

Many of our callers are concerned with the lack of effort their spouses are willing to put into their marriage. They’ve passed the patience mark and wonder if there is a way they will change or will they forever be in this relationship where its unbalanced. The Prophet (PBUH) taught us many things in regards to marriage and the roles of each spouse. There are certain narrations that even mention that he used to do many house chores including stitch his garments and mend his own shoes.
