‘Muslims Don’t Fall in Love before Marriage’

“Muslims don’t fall in love before marriage,” the woman said proudly. “That’s something only non-Muslims do.” When I first heard this statement, I was confused. But maybe I was misunderstanding what the woman meant. Perhaps the woman was just saying that Muslims don’t have sex before marriage (or at least that they’re not supposed to). …


No Chance Without My Friend

As salamu ‘alaykum, Dear brother, I think your situation is a good example of what happens when we engage in intimate relationships with the opposite sex and how things can develop beyond our control. Naturally, after being in a ‘working’ relationship with this young woman for 2 years, you developed feelings for one another. This …

I Fell in Love with an Atheist

I Fell in Love with an Atheist

Answer: As-Salamu ‘Alaikom, Dear sister, have no worries as they will interfere with your ability to literally feel and experience what living on the spiritual plane of existence really is.

Love Marriage: Only a Man's Right?

Sometimes, I catch myself smiling impulsively whenever I recall the drama around a few of the marriage proposals that I received during my early twenties.

My Would-be Wife 5 Years Older And Buddhist?

As-Salaamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Bararkatuhum, Thank you for your question. You mother’s concerns about her age are not valid in Islam; Khadijah, may Allah be Please with her, was 15 years older than the Prophet (saw) and he loved her and she loved him as much as any two people can love each …


Righteous People Don’t Have Desires?

I remember when I first read the story of the marriage of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, to Zaynab bint Jahsh, the divorced wife of his adopted son Zaid ibn Haritha, may Allah be pleased with them. Although I was relatively young when I happened upon this story, I was deeply moved. I remember …

Before It's Too Late - A Real Story

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, “I’ve got something to tell you.” She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I …


My Daughter Says " I Hate You", How to Respond?

As salamu alaykum dear sister, Shokran for writing to our lives session with your concerns.  A lot of parents become alarmed when their children learn and use the “hate” word.  It’s like hearing a swear word come out of your child’s mouth for the first time.  Only in the case of “I hate you” it …

Nothing is more important for a wife than winning the heart of her husband.  Because when the husband loves his wife, marital life would be a blessing like no other. Although people always talk about love as a fate that people don’t have control upon, like love at first sight for example, life continues to …
