Preparing for Marriage

Deciding to get married is probably one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life. It really is a decision you need to get right. Bad choices, lead to miserable marriages and pain that can often be avoided. The pain of divorce, especially when there are children involved, spans for generations- equip yourself to make your marriage work. As you embark on this important journey of your life, we would like to be by your side sharing our years of experience and wisdom to help you make the right choices and answer questions you may have, however personal.

We believe most people do not have marriage problems, but personal issues and we aim to highlight areas that you need to work on yourself before you get married. We will also be discussing what to look for, what to avoid, how to build love in your marriage and introduce you to parenting. As the Hadith says: “prevention is better than cure” and view this marriage course as an invaluable tool for preventing marriage problems, insha Allah.

This is a 5-week course which will have one live class per week as well as course resources.

There is a discussion forum where you are able to ask questions to the instructors and follow discussions.

This course is suitable for those seeking to get married and parents with children of marriageable age.
