Join us for this free lecture as Imam Shadeed discusses marriage in Islam: the rights, roles and rules of engangement.
Marriage is a divine institution replete with guidelines, rules and regulations designed to give a man and a woman the healthiest human engagement. Marriage in the Islamic tradition is governed by a set of broad [spousal] rights — for both husband and wife — that essentially provides the skeleton for their engagement, while allowing the individual capacity for love, emotional intelligence and personal sacrifice to provide the clothing [for that skeleton]. Allah says in the Qur’an, “And from among His signs is that He created for you spouses, from yourselves, that you may find tranquility in them. And He placed between your hearts love and compassion. Indeed, in this is a sign for people who reflect.” (Al Qur’an 30:21)
