Modern Muslim Marriage : Finding the Right Match and Making Your Marriage Succeed
“Every community of faith today is being forced to deal with the divorce culture and its baleful effects. The question is whether resources can be found inside our religious traditions to help people establish and sustain lasting and fulfilling marriages. In Modern Muslim Marriage, Suzy Ismail, a devout Muslim and a brilliant thinker and writer, shows that such vital resources are present in Islam. Hers is a book to be read by young Muslims contemplating marriage, and by parents and grandparents who wish to help them build marriages that are loving and solid enough to weather the storms.” Dr. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University & Chairman Emeritus of the National Organization for Marriage
