About the Book:
As Muslims stopped actively educating themselves about Islam directly from the Qur’an and Sunnah, accepting influences from different cultures became easy. Attitudes towards marriage have shifted drastically. Wedding celebrations speak volumes about our lack of understanding about Islam being a way of life.
We bring to you a valuable piece of writing on this issue. It is the need of the hour. A must for every Muslim household. A great gift for all around you.

This booklet is the result of a number of requests from English-speaking Muslims for information on how one should go about marriage and the correctness or desirability of certain common practices in their societies. Young people who were considering marriage, parents, teachers and other interested parties emphasized the need for education about this important matter. The prevalence of many foreign and un-Islamic cultural practices among Muslims today has thoroughly confused ordinary people and therefore prompted a response within the framework of the obligation to the community.
We have tried to outline the basic Islamic rulings in a brief and uncomplicated manner without diversion into aspects of little relevance to present-day concerns. If Allah should give benefit to some of His servants through this modest work, it is out of His favour and generosity. Any error is our own and from Shaytan, while all that is correct and good is from Allah, the Exalted.
