Birth control, or family planning through contraception, has become a common practice in society. Many new methods of permanent and temporary contraception have become widespread. Consequently, Muslims have also increasingly begun adopting the various means of limiting or spacing out procreation. This no doubt has a deep influence on the very core of our society and thus raises many ethical and religious questions, particularly surrounding abortion. Birth Control & Abortion in Islam systematically and concisely presents the relevant rules and regulations of Islamic law on these issues.
The commentary includes a variety of discussions, including linguistic analysis, exegesis, historical contentions, legal rulings, and of course, spiritual lessons. At the end of the book, Shaykh Rami has included the original Arabic text with translation as well as a section with just the Arabic text for easy memorization.
Divorce is more common today then at any previous time in recorded history. Muslims being no exception, there is a manifest need for a book that provides a clear exposition and practical guidance. The author, Samir Elatar, is a trained expert on the legal aspects of marriage who has advised hundreds of Muslim couples.
Islam regards marriage as a great act of worship because it is a responsible affair and a means of preventing a person from many forms of sins i.e. fornication, casting of the gaze upon unlawful things etc. Islam has explained in great detail the concept of marriage and all what is affiliated to it. Inspite of the fact that marriage is supposed to be a peaceful and a tranquil affair, today it has become a very questionable matter irrespective of ones religion, ethnicity, gender and prosperity.
MEANS TO ATTAIN A HAPPY FAMILY LIFE Some husbands and some of the fathers, their laughter is reserved for the people outside of the home, and if you see him outside of his family, you would say, "Masha Allah! He does not stop laughing!" And he makes those around him laugh. But when he enters the home, he transforms into a lion! He does not smile in his wife's face, and he does not smile in his children's face! This is not living with them in kindness.
