Mufti Menk Quotes in this clip “If you have married your daughter off to an honourable person who’s responsible he has character and conduct and he has a relationship with his Maker even if he doesn’t have all the glamorous things on earth; he’s going to look after her like a queen”.
In this lecture #MuftiMenk explains the fiqh of courtship and #marriage.We know that character conduct and deen, the deen meaning the level of religion; the level of character; the level of conduct etc; the level of responsibility is also included in that person is responsible with great character and conduct and they know their duty unto Allah because of that responsibility mashallah they are fit to be married but you need to look at them.
Mufti Menk Quotes in this lecture “You don’t have to have a huge engagement whereby you know people are getting bank loans and borrowing because they want to compete with the who’s who in order to show the world that we’ve had a very big engagement; no, those that waste wealth; they are void of Baraka; they’re void of blessings. What is an engagement in Islam- at the point where both the boy and the girl are happy the parents announced that inshallah we have now set a date of Nika. Don’t let that date be two years from now because in those two years Shaitaan will come and spoil the sowing be sown of the seed in a halal way by making it be sown in a Haram way”.
In this lecture #MuftiMenk give importance on key points like communication, way of saying and know how to let it go through adjusting with situation in order to build in #relationship along with mentioning the virtues of selecting #spouse for a happy #marriage.
Mufti Menk Quotes in this lecture “we end up complaining about people and we promise that we don’t want to be like them and we end up becoming worse than them without realizing it because we’re pointing fingers not knowing that the way to change is actually to begin with yourself”.
In this short reminders from #Mufti Menk quotes that everyone lives together, you have to have a big heart, you have to be very very accommodating and you have to understand your view is only but an opinion that’s all it’s not to be dictated upon; you make others who live with you happy and you shall be very happy. Learn to respect people give them their freedom don’t burden them with something extra over and above and let the women at home have a day off.
