Muslim Marriage - The Series (The Reminder - Season 2)

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,


One of the most popular videos from Season 1 was the one about Muslim Weddings. As I have been guest speaking at different events, I have noticed how many times the marriage issues comes up for both Muslim men and women. So I've decided to expand the original Muslim video into a four video series InshAllah.

#1 Searching for Your Other Half
status: to be announced
This video will deal with the struggles one goes through to find their other half. Back in the days, you would get hooked up because someone knew someone else and it was that easy. These days you have so many options and different avenues. The world is smaller now so you find more and more Muslims marrying into different culures or finding their spouses from across the world. This may sound like something very strange for our parents but it has become normal for most people.

#2 Marriage: The Parent Negotiations
status: completed and released
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.

#3 $25,000 Muslim Weddings
status: completed and released
This video deals with what happens once you have negotiated with your parents and its time for the wedding. Maybe I should have called it "The wife negotiation" video. Nah...we'll just keep it the $25,000 Muslim Weddings. Note the video may be outdated since it was made last summer. With inflation, it could be $30,000 to $40,000 Muslim Wedding.

#4 After the Honeymoon
status: to be announced
This is the final video in the series which will hopefully deal with what happens when the smoke clear and you find yourself married! :) Often times, funny things come up and you learn to compromise but at the same time, its a great learning experience and you begin your journey of life together.

MashaALLAH, sounds like a good serious. Best oke I seen is head to but joke. Waswasa's also true. Do you want to come over to England and do the University Circuit? No its not a gig, its more of a talk. But at all the different Universities. And I have a topic regarding marriage, the one were all the uncles and aunts do your head in once your 23ish.... in my case!!!!

Salam alikum,

Great idea! Marriage is such a big issue and I'm glad your going to take the time to go over it. Mind you, the $25 000 was quite funny yet so true.

Thanks for taking the time to do the reminders. It's truly appreciated.

Massalama

Hey, check out the "fiqh of love" and "love notes" taught by almaghrib, lots of good material there about weddings, marriage, the in-love syndrome, after the honeymoon and rekindling the romance.
