OVERVIEW

Family relationships are the most crucial relationships that you will be in. The relationship between parents, siblings, elders, and the opposite sex all have to be dealt in respective fashion. Islam values one’s respect so much so, that it also goes in detail with your dealings with your own neighbour, and their rights over you.

On the flip side, we also know that there are relationships that exist outside of marriage. We recognize that most know that they shouldn’t be involved in one, yet they find themselves in one anyways. Questions often ponder in their head and are reasons why they start to talk to us. “How certain do we believe this will turn to marriage? Are you doing the right thing? She will marry me, right?”

THE ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE

Through the Quran, you are reminded of the relationships and advices given by wise men. Through the stories of Luqman and his son, or the relationship of Prophet Yusuf (PBUH) and his brothers, valuable lessons can be learned. We also know that advice that our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has given to those who have the ability to marry. Yet, as parents, we feel that the potential partner doesn’t have the right job or caste, yet we still object a relationship outside of marriage.  Why the double standard?  We discuss in making both views see eye to eye and what’s best in an Islamic perspective.

RELATIONSHIPS WHATS THE ISSUE:

We have 2 main issues that we find are crucial. The lack of dialogue between parents and youth and the relationship between two people outside of marriage. The fact is we live in a society that youth are more committed to their cell phones and are on it 24/7. We don’t know who they are talking to, and although parents have a right, their children feel that being asked by them is a violation of their privacy. As parents, open discussion without a strong tone leads to trust and an open door to a proper upbringing. Our parents worry more than ever, as they should be. Are they to blame?

Muslim youths are more engaged socially in colleges and university, and a non-segregated environment will be presented to them. Will they be ready? Can you trust them? Did you speak to them about issues that you feel they should hear form you and not their friends?

Issues we help with?

PREMARITAL RELATIONS

BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND

PARENT/YOUTH CONFLICT

SIBLING RIVALRY

RELATIONSHIPS WHATS THE ISSUE:

One of our main focuses are parents calling in and telling us that their children are making the wrong move and not listening to their input when choosing the right spouse. The question that needs to be asked, is how involved were they with the relationship with their child growing up? When they are growing up, and craving our attention, parents are way too busy with work, fiddling on their iPhones and watching tv. Before you know it, when they become teenagers, and are in the car with you, the roles change, and your trying harder to start the conversation. You only have yourself to blame as they learned this from the parents. A proper upbringing and involvement with your child will lead to an open and trusted relationship where they will talk and take your words in a more serious and impactful way.
