Islamic Councelling

“Also among His Ayaat is that He has created spouses for you from yourselves so that you may find solace with her and He has placed love and mercy between you. There are certainly Ayaat in this for people who contemplate.” [Al-Rum, v. 21]

It has been narrated from Ibn Abbas رضى الله عنه that: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “There is nothing like marriage, for two who love one another.” [Sunan Ibn Majah, hadith 1847]

Marriage (nikah) is a religious institution of love and mercy that has been simplified by Allah ﷻ and His Beloved Messenger ﷺ, yet today many single Muslim brothers and sisters are apprehensive about marriage.

Islamic Premarital Counselling (Premarital Counselling based on Qur’an, Sunnah and Fiqh) can play a positive role in simplifying the process, transforming it into something desirable and, more importantly, finding answers and solutions to a wide range of issues. Islamic premarital counselling is about laying the foundation of a strong, healthy marriage combined with Islamic spirituality.

The topics of discussions throughout these sessions may include any of the following but not limited to: (listed in random order)

  • Level of parental/family elders involvement in searching for a potential spouse
  • Compatibility – what to look for in a potential spouse and what to avoid
  • Mashwarah (consultation) & Istikharah (seeking guidance from Allah)
  • Comprehensive understanding of the Islamic concept of marriage
  • Getting to know your potential spouse – asking the right questions.
  • Balancing relationships between spouse, parents, in-laws and extended family 
  • Rights & Obligations of the spouses
  • Communication & Connection
  • Identify differences to either resolve them or learn to manage them.
  • Conflict resolution & Anger management
  • The Islamic Spirituality behind marriage
  • Basic Fiqh of divorce – What words and statements to avoid so talaq does not unintentionally come into effect.

“If you fear that the couple may separate, then appoint a mediator from his family and a mediator from her family. If they both desire reconciliation, Allah will create unity between the couple. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, Informed.” [An-Nisaa, v. 35]

“If a women fears that her husband may ill-treat her or leave her, there shall be no sin on the couple should they make peace between themselves. Making peace is best. Selfishness has been made present in the souls. If you deal cordially and adopt Taqwa, then indeed Allah is informed of what you do.” [An-Nisaa, v. 128]

“If you make peace and adopt Taqwa, then surely Allah is Most Forgiving Most Merciful.” [Al-Nisaa, v. 129]

Our Imam also provides Islamic couples therapy for couples who seek to reconcile and manage their differences, according to Qur’an, Sunnah and Fiqh. He has also completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Multiple sessions over a period of time may be required; therefore, commitment from the couple is necessary.

“When you divorce wives and they reach their term, then keep them with kindness or release them with kindness. Do not keep them to hurt them, overstepping the limits set by Allah, for whoever does so has verily done wrong to himself.” [Al-Baqarah, v. 231]

In case of an inevitable situation where all efforts to reconcile were exhausted, and there is Islamic justification for divorce, our Imam will facilitate a smooth process of an amicable divorce according to Qur’an, Sunnah and Fiqh. This is strictly a religious service. For all legal matters, please contact a lawyer.

Note: The primary goal is reconciliation.
