Ever wish you could read your husband’s mind? Western culture encourages husbands and wives to talk to each other and discuss things.

However, in many Muslim cultures, men are raised to be stoic and tight-lipped. Muslim husbands are very often (not always) reluctant to talk about certain things with their wives. Continue reading 7 Things Your Muslim Husband Won’t Tell You

Islamic law regarding marriage

11949426_10153640174223685_2288329813717066107_nIslam recognizes value of sex and advocates marriage. Islam does not believe in celibacy. The Prophet of Islam has said, “Marriage is my Sunnah (that is recommended action of the Prophet) and whoever does not follow my Sunnah is not my true follower.” (Ibn Haiah, Babun Nikah)

Allah has commanded the Muslims to marry:

“And marry those among you who are single….” (24:33)

In Islam, marriage is essentially a contract. However, the distinction between sacred and secular was never explicit in Islam. Any action or transaction in Islam has religious implications. It is not quite accurate, therefore, to designate marriage in Islam simply as a secular contract. The appropriate designation of marriage could be a “Divine Institution”.

35 Gift Ideas for a Muslim Woman

14117808_10154491443193685_836589708687084317_nCan’t decide what to get your wife for Eid, or your anniversary,?

Why is gift-giving so hard for men? Maybe it’s a part of the mystery that women represent to us. We don’t always understand how they think, or what moves them. When it comes to gift-giving, at least, here’s a big hint for you: listen. Are you waiting for the hint? No, that was the hint. Listen.

Women will tell you what they want, if you pay attention. Next time you’re passing a shop window and she says, “Oh, look at those shoes, those are lovely,” make a note of it. Next time you’re watching a travel show and she says, “Wouldn’t it wonderful to see Niagara Falls someday?”, pay attention. Women drop hints like this all the time. And when I say make a note of it, I mean literally. Keep a small notebook in a private place, and every time she drops a little hint, write it down. That way you’ll never be short of gift ideas.
