Book foreword

Being a complete and final religion from God, Islām guides all aspects of our lives. This guidance is contained in the Holy Qur’ān; the life-time examples (that is, the Sunnah) and the sayings (Ḥadīth) of the Holy Prophet Muḥammad (peace and blessings of Allāh be on him).

In the USA, our members grow up in a non-Islāmic culture, and there are also converts to Islām who need to learn the Islāmic guidelines on marriage (just as in other matters). In light of this, Jamā‘at Aḥmadiyya in USA has colleted the relevant teachings on marriage.

These contain the Qur’ānic injunctions, extracts from the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muḥammad, peace and blessings of Allāh be on him, his example and written material obtained from the writings of Ḥaḍrat Mirzā Ghulām Aḥmad, the Promised Messiah, peace be on him.

This task was performed by the Tarbiyat Committee including members of the auxiliary organizations. Although the brunt of this work was borne by Maulānā Mukhtār Aḥmad Cheema, Maulānā Dāūd Ḥanīf made final adjustments.

The compilation of the material is divided as follows:

  • Part One is on Islāmic teachings when viewed as a premarital advice (counseling before Nikāḥ).
  • Part Two is advice on conduct during married life.
  • Part Three is on solutions to problems if and when they arise in the course of married life, so as to restore domestic peace and harmony. This will be printed separately.

This treatise is presented in the hope that many of the questions will be answered and that it will form the basis for mutual discussion among the parties.

 In particular it may help in defining expectations for married life as an Aḥmadī Muslim. In Shā’ Allāh. Wassalām, Ahsānullāh Ẓafar Amīr, Aḥmadiyya Movement in Islām, U S A
