HAPPILY EVER AKHIRAH
Learn how to find a partner and develop a successful relationship which will benefit you in the Dunya and the Akhirah.
This is a unique marriage course based on the Seerah (biography) of Prophet Muhammad (saw).
The aim of the course is to provide guidance to Muslims who wish to get married or are already in a marriage. The seminar is divided into two distinctive parts.
The first part provides a summary of the marriage of our Prophet (saw) to Khadijah (RA) – taught in a story like manner. This marriage was unique as it remained monogamous throughout the 25 years that it lasted. It was a loving relationship, that bore the Prophet (saw) his only children that lived until adulthood. The marriage broke many cultural taboos such as, he was younger than his wife, and she was richer than him. Their example provides a holistic understanding of how an ideal marriage should be according to Islamic principles.
The second part of the seminar will take the lessons learnt from the story of Muhammad (saw) and Khadijah (RA) and apply them to our everyday life in a pragmatic/practical manner.
This section will focus on three key aspects: choosing a spouse, the marriage ceremony, and staying happily married. For each of these stages, the Sheikh will explain the Islamic etiquettes and rulings, as well as provide pragmatic advice guidance from the Quran and Sunnah.
