By Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman al-Huthaifi - 03 Jumaadal Ula 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman al-Huthaifi, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled, “Matrimonial Rights and the Causes of Divorce,” in which he talked about marriage, stating that it is a solemn covenant and one of the strongest bonds in this life. He highlighted its multiple benefits for the husband, the wife, and the children, as well as for society as a whole. He referred to the most useful means for maintaining marriage and the main causes of divorce, shedding light on some of the rights of the husband and the wife with regard to each other. Finally, he urged Muslims, particularly the young married couples, not to take divorce too lightly and to consider its dire consequences. read more

Sitting in the park George asked his 40-year-old friend John, "How come you aren't married?"

John: "I haven't found the right woman yet."

George: "So what are you looking for?"

John: "Oh she's got to be real pretty, a good cook and house keeper. She's got to know how to handle money, have a nice and pleasant personality and money. She's got to have money.
And a nice big house wouldn't hurt either."

George: "A woman like that would be crazy to marry YOU!"

John: "Oh, it's okay, if she is crazy."
