Workshop: Marriage Matters

And it is Allah who has given you spouses from amongst yourselves and through them He has given you children and grandchildren and provided you with good things. How can they believe in falsehood and deny Allah’s blessings?…

[An-Nahl: 72]

🔸 Is your marriage the one you had dreamt of?
🔹 Do you want to unlock the secrets of being a good spouse?
🔸 Do you want to make your love flourish?

Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate…

Open to both singles and married couples, this workshop is not the usual “rights and responsibilities” course, rather it will help you enhance and elevate your marriage to new heights, Allah willing, through practical steps to improve marital behaviour between spouses, delivered by experts who deal with marriage cases on a daily basis.

The bedrock for a healthy and functional society lies in the integrity of the family unit, which is primarily dependent on a successful relationship between husband and wife. At the Islamic Council of Europe, the majority of work we engage in deals with marriage breakdowns.

A staggering 42% of marriages end in divorce, thus it is essential for the community to comprehend the framework of a successful marriage and learn how to apply that framework in daily life.
