Divorce has been strongly discouraged among the people as it is the most hated Halal thing by Allah. This has been one of the root causes for a negligible number of divorce cases in Muslim Countries.
South East Asian Family system has been one of the strongest. This region had witnessed extremely low divorce rate in the past but with the changing times, today the story is not so. We see an ascending graph of ill fated marriages.
Marriage in Islam is a very important as our Prophet (PBUH) said “Marriage is my Sunna. He who shuns my Sunna is not of me.”
Whether it is Islamic or not, marriage brings drastic changes to life. Sharing life is not easy. With the intervention of children, the load of responsibilities increases. As life progresses, a couple is faced with numerous challenges and problem which could be successfully be resolved by careful measures.
Islam is not just about religious practices; it is about a way of life that is closest to nature. Marriage is the most important building block of any society and Islam tells us all the details that we need to know to make this institution as strong as rock! The importance of having a marriage is depicted in this Quranic verse, “It is He who created you from a single soul, and made its mate of like nature in order that you might dwell with her in love….”
Ramadan, a month of forgiveness, compassion, purity and prayers, is sadly not free from all evil. At least that’s what I can say about here in Pakistan. Each and every devil is locked up till Ramadan ends, but the devils that live inside a human are left free to reign.
Shaadi is a joyous occasion in one’s life for it entwines two souls together for the rest of their lives. This phenomenon, that we have come to call as ‘shadi’, is celebrated worldwide in various different forms. Men and women belonging to different countries, religions, ethnicity, social class etc. celebrate this event as per their respective culture. But even within a respective religion, the events of the shaadi ceremony have been altered as per the cultural upbringing.
It would be fair to assert that every religious tradition in human history has highly valued and continues to highly value knowledge, good deeds and spirituality (i.e. in sense of performance of some kind of religious rituals). However, differently they were/are defined or put into practice.
What is interesting to explore, and this is the aim of this short article, is the idea of the relative importance placed on these three pillars of religious tradition one vis-a-vis the other. This could be accomplished both comparatively (i.e. across different religions) and well as within the various strands of a particular religious tradition. It could also be examined chronologically tracing any possible patterns or shifts in patterns. An examination of this ‘prioritizing’ is useful as it would give us an insight into the ‘ideal’ types of theologies prevalent among the adherents of religious traditions and perhaps be used as a method for developing typologies of theologies.

I have been married before but my husband cheated on me and left me for another woman. Now after 3 years of divorce, I have met a decent guy who is interested in getting married to me but I cannot seem to be able to trust him. I trusted my ex-husband completely but he betrayed me and now I cannot trust anyone at all. I really like this man and he is everything I could ask for but something inside me is afraid of trusting him and facing betrayal. I am totally confused and have no idea what should be done. Will I never be able to trust another man? I even went to a psychiatrist after my first husband left me as I was completely devastated and needed help.
Last year I met someone who shares the same interests as me and is highly compatible with me. Lately I have been thinking of proposing to her and calling my previous engagement off but I am not sure if she would say yes.
On the other hand, I'm pretty sure my parents will never speak to me again if I break it off with my cousin. I am confused as to what should be done since my marriage is scheduled for this June, for which we have to go to Pakistan.
I have serious doubts that my cousin will be able to adjust here.
I didn't want to be too emotionally involved with him so I told him we had to part ways.
He would still check up on me every now and then. It's been a few months since we've been seeing each other again. We are not in a relationship because of our faiths. He asked me to convert, I'm liberal in my ways but I carry Islam close to my heart.
So I explained it to him. He feels strong about his faith as well. Neither of us is willing to give up our faiths. Every time we call it quits and no more seeing each other, it doesn't work.
He says that not only dyeing hair is prohibited in Islam but the reddish tone is highly in appropriate as it is associated with devil in so many cultures.
I researched on the internet and have found contradictory views as some say it is haram while others say it is permissible to dye your hair in nay color but black.
