Marriage: The Parent Negotiations
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,
Please comment so I know you're watching InshAllah. Also, if you get a chance, rate the video on YouTube too :)
Once you find the person to marry, then you notify your parents. Sometimes, there is drama involved, sometimes there isn't. This video is about all the back and forth negotiations one goes through when dealing with their parents about marriage. Its usually an issue when the parents and their kids have completely different views of marriage. I think many young people who are going through the process can totally relate to this video.
Please feel free to LINK to this video or to post this video onto your website or blog. I have been asked many times to cover this issue so I finally got the chance to do so. Now its in your hands to help spread the video by emailing those you know to check it out InshAllah. There are MANY parents watching this video blog series so InshAllah so I hope by the number of comments below will show them how many Muslims want to do things Islamically. If hope at the bare minimum, it opens the door to discussing this issue with the kids who are going through the process. If the burden is reduced on young couples who want to get married, then that result would be priceless.
I hope the parents out there are watching and reading the comments :) and since the web is anonymous you're more likely to get an honest answer on how people feel about this issue because nobody knows who is who.
I think the parents will be surprised by the number of people (via the comments) who share the similar views of this video. Allah Alim.
