I have chosen someone to marry. I am still studying. We have known eachother and each others families and I’m happy to go forward and be married but before doing so I want to make sure I know everything I should know about marriage such as my rights. Where is the best place I can get this information from as I want to make sure I really know everything and am well equipped for this life commitment. I also wanted to ask you about doing a marriage long distance? Also my mum is happy with the family and with who I’ve chosen but she is hesitant just because of the fact I am young and he is not financially stable yet which I know are not islamically noteworthy factors but I have a difficult time explaining that to her. I’d rather be married sooner than later, but often I don’t know how confident I am that I am ready in the sense that I know if I know enough yet.

This lecture states the rights of the husband and the wife in a marriage.


Marriage is a sacred relationship according to Islam, my advice is for you to always put God first when making any decision. If you do that you will find happiness in this life and in the next.

Long distance marriages have many challenges. It’s best to be together because that is the purpose of marriage. If financial stability is an issue now, that will go away as long as you both work hard and remain patient.
