Rules of Divorce in Islam

Source : / 8 May 2013

Divorce is a game of seconds. Divorce in Islam is the most disliked permissible act.

In the earlier times, no rules of divorce were set, men used to divorce their women out of anger or any other reason and after some time they used to take them back. Women were not given any rights and they were forced to go back in the marriage with their ex-husbands. This inequality and injustice was addressed by Islam and there were rules set to divorce so that no injustice could take place.


Tips for a Muslim home

By Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajjid / 28 Mar 2013

All praise be to Allah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah Alone, with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is His slave and messenger.


Youthful marriage: Impractical ideal, or a viable option?

By Zainab Bint Younus / 20 Feb 2013

Surrounded by a global culture of hypersexuality, Muslim parents and youth share one similar concern: marriage. When to prepare for marriage, after post-secondary education or before? How to find suitable marriage partners?

Many Muslim parents still prefer the more recent tradition when it comes to marriage: waiting for young men to finish their university educations and begin successful, financially rewarding careers; and then searching for partners within a select pool and with an even more select criteria.


How to Enjoy a Productive Weekend

By Tushar Imdad-ul-Haque Bhuiya / 16 Feb 2013

Here are my top 5 suggestions for weekend activities, which are all in line with Islamic virtues.

#1 Increase Your Worship

Free time at the weekend is a blessing. We all would love more free time. A secret of the pious is that whenever they want to increase a blessing they give shukr for it, due to Allah’s (glorified and exalted be He) promise in the Qur’an:

‘If you are grateful to Me, I shall certainly increase you (in favour).’[Quran: Chapter 14, Verse 7]

Guiding our Children to Commemorate Muhammed (pbuh) - the Prophet of Allah.

By Adil Mohd / 24 Jan 2013

1. A Deed a Day

The "A Deed a Day" initiative is a good way to start emulating the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), as he (peace and blessings be upon him) encouraged believers to engage in good deeds even if it was as small as smiling to another brother or sister.

Consciously thinking of a good deed every day raises awareness and love of Prophet Muhammad's life, as it stated repeatedly in the Qur'an that we are to follow the way of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).


Parent-Child Relationship in Islam

Source : Islam101 / 27 Dec 2012

1) Rights of Parents (and Duties of children)

Islam recognises family as a basic social unit. Along with the husband-wife relationship the Parent-child relationship is the most important one. To maintain any social relationship both parties must have some clear-cut Rights as well as obligations. The relationships are reciprocal. Duties of one side are the Rights of the other side. So in Parent-child relationship the Rights of parents are the obligations (duties) of the children and vice versa, the Rights of children are obligations (duties) of parents. Islam clearly defines the Rights of Parents (which mean duties of children) and obligations of parents (which means Rights of children).
