Effective Marital Communication

The Art of Fruitful Marital Communication (Video)

The problem in communication is one of the most common issues that couples go to marriage counseling to solve. Why?

  • Because we have not grown up with the person intimately.
  • Because genders communicate differently. The other person is like someone who is coming from another culture – of course, communication can, thus, be challenging.

In this video, sister Hana is giving you two tips that if you practice, inshallah you will have a more fruitful marital communication.

Tip 1

„Body speaks louder” – Body language is an important aspect of any communication, oftentimes even more important than words! This is why one of the practices of Prophet Muhammad was turning to the person whom he spoke to with his full body. Do the same when you talk to your spouse. Indicate that you pay attention.

Tip 2

We are not mind-readers. So, to avoid any miscommunication, ask questions before you let yourself feel hurt by your spouse’s actions or words. Ask, for example, ”What do you mean exactly by this?”

Stay tuned for sister Hana’s upcoming videos!
