Divorce rates in the country continue to rise among Muslim couples who have been married for 10 to 14 years.

The Brunei Darussalam Statistical Yearbook (BDSYB) for 2011, which was released last week, revealed that marriages lasting 10 to 14 years have consistently topped the divorce rates over the past five years.

These couples account for 20.6 per cent or 95 cases out of the 459 divorces registered in 2011. However, overall divorce rates have dropped 4.9 per cent last year compared to 2010.

A trifle is a very delicious dessert. Sweet, creamy, with the added fruit and sponge-cake, it is an ideal dessert after a heavy meal. And if you like fruits, jelly and custard in your dessert, trifles will accommodate it.

The best thing about trifle is that it’s easy to make. It doesn’t need you to be professional chef, in all cases this dessert can be made successfully without any previous experience.

All the cells in our body and especially the brain need a constant supply of glucose, oxygen and specific micronutrients in order to function normally. A lack of glucose can make us feel tired, irritable, hungry, angry, dizzy, short of breath, nauseous, feverish and very confused. These are warning signals that are relayed from various parts of the body to the brain to report glucose depletion at a cellular level. Despite the fact that you may already have plenty of sugar in your bloodstream, insulin is required to transport that glucose into the cells so it can be used as fuel.

All religions and all societies have given parents an honorable status. From a purely material viewpoint, we find ourselves indebted to our parents, particularly our mother. She not only nourished us in her womb, but went through pain and suffering. She loved us even before we were born. She toiled when we were totally helpless infants. She spent sleepless nights caring for us. Our parents as a team provided for all our needs: physical, educational, psychological, and in many instances, religious, moral, and spiritual.

Are you close to your teenager? When was the last time the two of you had a heart-to-heart talk?

Maintaining strong family ties is a cornerstone of Islam. However, many of us seem to need proof that strong family ties are necessary or even possible in North America. Consequently, even Muslim teenagers are finding it difficult to approach their parents to talk about stresses they are facing in their academic, personal and social lives.

Raising children with deen and dunya

By Hina Khan-Mukhtar | SeekersGuidance | 21 Jun 2012

I still vividly remember the first night I spent by myself in the hospital after delivering my eldest son Shaan. The guests were gone for the day, the hallway lights were dimmed, the nurses were speaking outside my room in muted tones.

“Knock, knock!” came a cheerful voice from the doorway. “Someone’s hungry and wants his mommy!”


Teaching your Child about Islam

By Freda Shamma | ISNA | Chicago | 2000

Children are born in a state of fitra (purity) and then their parents teach them to be believers or unbelievers. According to the Musnad Ibn Hanbal, "The children of the unbelievers are better than you grown-ups. Every living creature is born with a righteous nature." It is our obligation and duty as parents to teach our children so that they grow up to be believing, practicing Muslims. Sending the child to an Islamic weekend school or to a full-time Islamic school is an important but minor part of their Islamic education. The major 'institution of learning' for each child is his family, and the major 'professors' of this institution are the parents.
