At one point or another, you’ll get the Time To Get Married card and either you’re one of those lucky few who instantaneously finds someone and lives, as happily-ever-after as possible or you’ll be in position countless people are in today – struggling to find someone.

So how does a person go about finding someone? Is it the, more traditional, family members or friends ask around approach or do we take things into our own hands and find somebody ourselves. Let’s say we do, do the latter. What are our options? Dating – hmm, now that’s a no no. Going to places to mingle? Again, a no no. Ah how about online?

Shia Muslim wife is the best wife

Some women are good and some are bad. Similarly some men are bad and some are good.

We all want a good partner when we get married. But who are the best men and women to marry?
I say Shia Muslim wife is best of all women to get married to. Shia Muslim women are pious, loyal, and very Islamic. They love their husband and they bring up children in the best way. Husbands love their Shia Muslim wives. Husband can rely on her, can trust her and he does not doubt her in any way. She is his precious gift from God.  Shia women are most loved women on Earth. The heart of husband and wife is happy because they love God and His Prophet and the Holy Family. God loves them. They love each other. Shia Muslims females are best females to marry. Shia Men are best husbands to marry.

Saint Valentine and today's Muslims


Valentine's day. A day on which a couple show their outward affection for each other through gifts and other acts of devtion. It may involve flowers and even chocolate. Isn't this the height of western decadence mixed with fairytale Hollywood romance?

Surely this is something that all Muslims should stay away from Or should they?

If you look at the underlying message of Saint Valentine, who was Christian, the message is not one of romance, decadence or fairytales. It is a simple tale of marriage.

Saint Valentine conducted marriage ceremonies for individuals who wanted to get married but for whatever reason wanted to get married, religion allowed but but for whatever reason they couldn't (including reasons of societal taboo).

The Revival Matrimonial Service


As Editor of The Revival Magazine over the last decade or so one issue that pops up more than any other is that of marriage. When a young Muslim in his mid 20's or early 30's wants to get married here he/she comes across many problems and obstcales. They don't wanna get married 'back home' or to their cousin and don't want to enter the dating scene- so what do they do?

Muslim matrimonial events or better known as 'halal' speed dating or even finding 'the one' online doesn't work for most and creates more problems.

So to avoid being forced in to marriage and marrying someone against their wishes what options do they have?

My revived thoughts on Marriage

Recently I’ve had quite a few friends talking to me about marriage and how they feel sadness that while so many people that they know, are getting married, their situation regarding marriage is never changing. They want that companion that Allah swt has placed in us, to want (and it’s not being desperate or the new ‘in’ word “thirsty” – personally I think that, thinking this is both childish and naive). These friends are by no doubt conscious, of the ever present requirements of culture to get married before they get too old. Now, I don’t look down on both of these things because I can empathise, they are both, particularly the latter, sad realities of the society that we live in.

Idiots Guide To Marriage in Islam

Shaykh Salim Ghisa

What is the purpose of marriage in Islam? What are the benefits?

Marriage is a bond that makes it permissible for a man and a woman to have an intimate relationship. This would then allow a child to be born from that relationship and to have its name linked to both the mother and the father.

Can a boy/girl choose her own marriage partner?

Yes a boy or girl can chose their own marriage partners so long as it meets the criteria of Shariah (Islamic law). This means that they should be Muslim and their beliefs should not be of those that take them out of the fold of Islam. (1)

1. Role Expectation

Women, know your place! Only kidding. Truth is, you DO need to know what’s expected from you and vice versa. Even before you embark upon married life, both partners need to reach an agreement with regards to how the household responsibilities are divided and how they will behave towards each other.
