Marriage – n. completion of half the Deen, the union of two souls in the sight of Allah SWT, and an amazing journey to lifelong fulfilment in Deen and Dunya.
‘And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves partners that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for those who reflect.’
(Surah Ar-Rum, Ayah 21)
In Islam, the married husband and wife complete each other – together they make a single self and this is how they must strive to make their lives together and please Allah SWT – as if they are one being, one person, one spirit.
It is often said that “marriages are celebrated on earth but settled in heaven” – but in this day and age, with so many different messages from the media, and movies or from families and friends, the topic of marriage can be confusing. When will I find my spouse? How will I find my husband/wife? For married couples who have already found each other, perhaps all is not as they first expected. Why isn’t my life that fairytale romance? Why this…why that?
To answer these questions and learn more about finding true happiness in marriage, join UCL ISoc for a two-day weekend course exploring marriage in Islam.
Renowned Al-Maghrib instructor, Sheikh Dr. Reda Bedeir will cover the Fiqh of marriage, how to find a spouse, as well as how to live and work through the challenges marriage may bring. Be enlightened in this invaluable weekend course that will educate, inspire and give you greater understanding of how to approach marriage and how to find the right person, so you can, together, please Allah SWT in this life and the hereafter.
