Before getting married, like many other unmarried Muslims, I used to think marriage would be all rosy and make my life much better. In reality, it is you who decides to make your life better. To expect your spouse to magically make everything okay is an unfair expectation, they’re only human after all; like you they have flaws and weaknesses. Marriage is not a band-aid fix to your problems, marriage is helping each other by, standing by one another and fixing each other’s problems together


May Allah (SWT) bless our marriages and grant us wonderful spouses, Ameen.

Follow them! They’re all amazing with pure souls. May Allah bless you all and grant you all Jannah! May He reward you for every effort you put in for His sake! Ameen.✨

“A man at the masjid was telling me that if it wasn’t for his wife, he would have been destroyed. She struggled with him for 18 years to get him to perform Salah [prayer]. She used to bring him wudu water and he used to throw it away. But with her persistence and struggle, he now prays 5 times a day in the Masjid. He was in tears talking about how much he loves his wife. Don’t take a good woman for granted.”

From my experience, the first year of marriage seems to be the hardest. You’re both getting to know each other, you’re not used to each others habits and quirks (even if you had known each other before marriage). Patient is key. There will likely be days when your spouse’s reaction or behaviour will confuse; your spouse will have similar days. Keep communication open, talk to each other; share even the smallest, seemingly insignificant things, build your relationship step by step. Do not compare your marriage to someone else’s marriage, you only see the surface of their marriage, you have no idea of the reality of their marriage or the struggles the couple has been through to reach the point they are at now. Also, everyone is different; focus on the positives.

Lastly, trust Allah; pour your heart out to Him in prayer/dua.

“Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives.”

[The Noble Qu’ran 110:3]


As Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (RA) said:

“If your spouse is angry, you should be calm. When one is fire, the other should be water.” 


May Allah (SWT) grant us blessed marriages, Ameen.

I was sitting in the cafeteria a few days ago, when suddenly one of my supervisors’ Adhan app started reciting “Allahu Akbar”. Immediately, a number of people in the cafeteria began to look at him; he looked nervous and scrambled to turn the sound off.

It pains that such a beautiful phrase “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) has been associated and stereotyped with terrorism and all else that goes completely against the beauty and enterity of the phrase.

May Allah (SWT) protect us all and our loved ones, Ameen.

As'salaamu Alaikum,

I know lately haraam relationships have become more and more common and is especially difficult to shield ourselves from them in the West or other non-Muslim countries due to the frequent daily exposure and normalization of the concept.

Many young Muslims are taunted, made felt different and excluded from their peers if they don’t partake in these relationships like all their friends.

If you’re struggling with this, hang in there!
Don’t let peer pressure get to you, remember, “Indeed Allah is with the patient.”

And if you have already been in a haraam relationship, don’t despair! Allah (SWT) is the Most Merciful. We all makes mistakes, the real test is us realizing our mistakes and seeking forgiveness from Allah (SWT) insha'Allah.

May Allah SWT bless you and your loved ones, Ameen!
