[E-book] Guidelines For A Successful Marriage


The sanctity and status of marriage are great in Islam, and it is especially encouraged among the youth. Marriage is an institution that unites a man and woman in a permissible and, indeed, much-encouraged relationship. The couple starts their journey together, each finding comfort in the other in straitened times, and each enjoying the other’s company in prosperous and easy times. In the Quran, Allaah The Almighty calls upon us to ponder on the beautiful and sacred relationship of marriage: {And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your [hearts]} [Quran, 30:21]

Marriage creates a powerful bond which, with mutual affection and sacrifice, establishes a strong Muslim family where offspring are provided with a suitable adherent and practicing environment. Thus, the couple’s children will not only be born Muslims but will live Islam in its true spirit and develop the character and behavior of true Muslims. A Muslim society rests upon the Muslim family, and when the family’s members are trained from childhood to acquire Islamic morals, compete with one another in doing good deeds and engage in productive activities, the Muslim society is strong indeed.

[E-book] The right way- Ibn Taymiyyah (summarised translation)


Our present society – teeming with polytheistic and innovated practices such as invoking the dead, festivals at shrines, seeking help of soothsayers and exorcists, celebration of the birth or death anniversaries of Prophets and saints, unlawful vow and sanctification of persons, places and times, belief in omens and countless other superstitions and so on – stands in need of Shaykh-ul-Islaam’s works that have educated and guided both the commoners and scholars for the last several centuries.

The Right Way is a summarised translation of Ibn Taymiyyah’s great work, Iqtida-us-Siratil Mustaqueem. It is hoped that the living topics discussed herein in a highly erudite but lucid style, which has been more or less transferred into English, would enlighten the readers and guide the seekers of truth.

This book outlines the basic Islamic concepts in child education. The  author has tried to coordiante the main ideas, as well as the basics  precepts for raising Muslim children in all the different spheres of  life. First of all, the importance of correct belief and faith cannot be inculcated in young children except through the teaching and example of their parents; and obviously, the role of the mature and religious  mother is foremost. This state of harmony can only be achieved when  matrimonial relations are relatively stable. Care is to be taken in  providing young children with all the necessary elements in the fields of ethical, physical and psychological education. This cannot be overemphasized. It is established that the common ailments of human societies, personal as well as social, find their remedy in monotheism and justice. Therefore, emphasis on these two moral principles is essential. Muslim children must develop a clear understanding of the concept of the oneness of Allah, mainly through the performance of devotional acts of worship, to Him, and through developing a sense of justice in all personnel and social dealings. The author has briefly outlined these glorious concepts in this book. Through his deep understanding of Islam, and his eminent conviction and personal adherence to its glorious principles, he introduces this book to the readers, with all practical instructions, with the intention of helping to build up a Muslim nation, worthily to uphold the honorable tenets of the Glorious Qur’an and Sunnah.
