A must read for all who are or have all ready been married
I've had other copies of the hikam but this is by far the best in English for sure, currently reading it with the family and everyone is truly enjoying it .
It is essential in today's climate for any laymen follower of Hanafi fiqh to understand that the school he/she follows is grounded in proof and evidence.
Al fiqh al akbar explained
Masha Allah a great service by white thread press in publishing this beneficial work by Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali. I really appreciate the task of clarifying the Hanafi position on fiqhi matters as that really helps when we are reading this work at home. It is also pleasing to see the Arabic text has been included in the print, however I have observed that the translation (at times) includes those passages which I could not find in the actual text of the Dar al-Minhaj print, rather it has been taken from the footnotes.
Lastly, the print is good quality as always and easy to use.
May Allah accept this task and enable white thread press to continue publishing such gems. Aameen
This book is highly informative since it covers all the topics regarding Marriage from searching for a spouse to how to deal with divorce and everything in between. It covers controversial topics as well and debunks "cultural" practices that are very relevant in many families. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who plans on getting married as well as anyone who is already married. Amazing book with lifelong principles to live by with your spouse
Bought as gift for sister & friend... Such a beautiful book and makes for a lovely gift. Highly recommend
It’s a gift for my cousin, she was so happy!
This book is filled with all the du'as we're familiar with but scattered within are real gems that bring life, joy and happiness to the reader hoping to gain the reward of the du'a one is reading. It's part of my daily routine to read certain parts of this book now! Alhamdulilah.
The only thing that bothered me was the 2 different sections of arabic and English. I'd much prefer the Arabic with the English to help a bit more with reading the dua with a bit more feeling.
I used to be big on conspiracy theories which can cause one to have a negative outlook on life. Alhamdulilah this book gives a lot of hope. Coupled with Mufti Mangera's talk on Agenda for Change Conference a few years ago, this book gave a fresh look on life. No matter how dark the world seems Allah has a plan and He's the best of planners!
I pray the other volumes of this work can also be translated for the Umma. It's a must-read for every Muslim to connect to their heritage aswell as to be inspired!
Easy to follow and understand.
Motivates action 🙂
Both I and my wife highly recommend this book to all married couples and also to those who are looking to get married. The most unique feature of this wonderful work is that Mufti Mangera has managed to address many relevant twenty-first century marital issues and challenges in light of Islamic principles.
The book arrived in perfect condition, and was not delayed in receiving it. I look forward to reading it. Thank you
This is a thoroughly inspirational work which gives fascinating account of some of the greatest figures in our tradition over the past 1400 years. Reading about these towering giants of our deen makes you realise the immense sincerity, humbleness and steadfastness with which they all served our religion. We truly owe these great men our gratitude for their great sacrifice. This book brilliantly summarises their key contribution in the way they all left their mark in our history. The book has a relaxed style of language making it easy to digest, is well researched and referenced.
The book contains 70 prayers with forgiveness, its also useful for muslims who cant yet read Arabic. I am very happy with the purchase. May Allah reward Dr. Mufti and his family for the work and help they do. Ameen
Excellent book. Must have for all households. Very practical advice. Good for all stages of marriage journey.
Excellent book to read, together with commentery by Dr. Mufti Abdur-Rahman on YouTube zamzam academy channel they are perfect combination. Very pleased Allhumdulla.
This is my 2nd purchase of this gem of a book. I recently gave my 1st copy to a dear friend who alos enjoyed it! It's too good of a book not to have it in your personal library! Must have and a bargain price! My only bother was that Prince Ghazi needs to finish the book! May Allah accept him and his books! Ameen.
Very well bounded and printed. Will buy again.
Often use as a manual to refer to for clarity on aspects of dīn. Would highly recommend to anyone within the hanafi school of thought.
I purchased the book "The Path to perfection
I bought the compact edition for my late father who saw my daughter reading from it and asked where she had got it from. He read from it everyday until he passed away this March (May Allah forgive him and grant the highest abode in jannah, Ameen). Although I have a A4 size copy that I used to read from. I now read from my late fathers compact version and I find it easier to hold and take with me if I go anywhere. I love the front cover, makes the book look extra special. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It doesn’t take long to read each day when it’s read regularly. May Allah reward the author and editor, Ameen.
I have read through a number of fiqh books looking for those small questions which pop up when reading works such as Quduri and Hidayah. I would have to previously look through multiple books for one answer as to how small actions invalidate salah but this book is amazing. The footnotes contain alot of research and answers and I highly recommend all students with even the slightest interest in fiqh to read this book
I am so happy with the purchase. Its easy to read, i found answers to my questions. Its good for a gift as well. May Allah grant Dr. Mufti and his family the highest place in Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen
This book is a must have for any student of knowledge! The print and typesetting is very accurate and professionally done unlike the many islamic publishers in our times who produce embarrassingly poor prints. The addition of harakat on all the words means that this is great reading practice for students of Arabic. My only complaint would be perhaps that they should of proofchecked the placement of the harakat thus making a perfect book.
This is an amazing book of wisdoms. Dealing every day with nafs, shaytan and people can be hard and difficult. This book of wisdoms gave me an understanding of how to get closer to Allah Subhana wa Taala. I recommend.
Ghazali’s The Beginning of Guidance (Bidayat al-Hidaya)
Elhamdulliah, great book
I've been married 25 years but allhumdullilah so much to take and learn from this book. A must have on all Muslim household bookshelves I ordered more copies to give to newlyweds overall a excellent book to have and read over and over.
Al-Hizb al-A’zam wa ‘l-Wird al-Afkham (Compact Edition)
I’ve read some of this book only and absolutely love it already, Alhamdulilah so happy with my purchase and it is a perfect gift for a muslim ..... would definitely recommend everyone buy and support....
JazakALLAHu khair Mufti for your amazing work...
May ALLAH bless you and your family ........
This book is an excellent read. It has proved to be very beneficial especially for the times we are living in and comprehensively covers all aspects of marriage, whether that be during marriage, in the lead up to marriage or post marriage.
The mufti (hafidhahullah) in his eloquent style puts things in perspective and brings forward a very practical approach. He touches on important issues and shares his wisdom and advice. The book benefits unmarried as well as married people due to the topics it adrresses.
Thank you for taking time to produce such a piece. May it be accepted and serve its purpose amongst people. Ameen
Whether you are single, newly wed or an older married couple. This book will benefit you and give you a deep understanding of how a marriage can be long lasting and where marriages go wrong.
Read it with an open heart, without any biases and leave your baggage behind you, so you can improve your character and work with your beloved partner to grow together and also provide sound advice to your dear ones.
It's a very easy to read book and set out quite well. Some chapters may not apply to you so take from what benefits you and put it into practice over time.
Jazakallah khairan Mufti Sab
Provides good advice to a healthy relationship. Really recommend it to anyone looking to marry or even those already married as it covers a lot on marriage and the islamic ruling that come with it. It is simple to follow and easy to read. JazakAllah to the author and team behind this book.
Still reading the book enjoying it so far learning a lot
Alhamdulillah it’s such an amazing insight on marriage. Definitely recommend this to everyone- even those who aren’t married.
The author gives a balanced approach from both spouses’ perspectives. The pre-marital section is shorter than expected, but its also the shortest period of the entire institution of marriage. Overall, a v helpful book with advice from the Quran, Sunnah, Ulemah and anecdotal accounts!
An amazing read and a must have for every married couple and those looking to get married
Me and my husband really enjoyed and benefited from reading this book. I have also purchased copies for my friends (both married and unmarried). The book has been written very well, it’s easy to understand and the author has provided great examples. Highly recommend!
This book is filled with practical, much needed advice and information. I would recommend everyone read it whether they are married or not. Muftisaab has a fresh, direct approach and he covers every topic that needs to be addressed in a no-nonsense fashion. It’s just like listening to him speak. Every household must have a copy for reference.
Alhamdulillah an insightful book of the realities of the process and marriage itself. A topic that has not been thoroughly explained or made available. Jazka’allahu Khair to the author for combining the realities of marriage with the Islamic principles.
I have read many books on marriage by both Muslim and non-Muslim authors, and this is by far the best book I have read on how to have a healthy marriage by a Muslim author. The advice contained within the book is based on Islamic principles, but looks at marriage as a wholesome experience, in the context of modern western challenges, culture, context and the wider factors affecting a marriage. And that is what makes this book unique. In addition, the author draws on his own experiences of helping and advising married couples and shares stories and practical tips. The author is open and honest about his own limitations and that his advice may not always be the perfect one, which is refreshing to read.
This is a very detailed guide on how to practically have a good relationship with your spouse (it is 264 pages of small text), and the author being a prominent Mufti means readers don't have to worry about verifying any Islamic advice given. However, just so readers are aware, it does not cover intimacy advice, for which I would recommend Mufti Muhammad Ibn Adam's book: Islamic Guide to Sexual Relations.
The book covers many practical topics, from questions to ask pre-marriage to how to develop good communication skills within a marriage and also a section on divorce too. I think it would have been beneficial to have had a section on neurodivergent conditions and how they can affect a marriage. Sometimes a couple may be aware that one partner has a condition, but many a times people are not aware that a spouse for example has a neurodivergent condition like Aspergers. This means that whilst the spouse may be intelligent and able (and may look totally neurotypical to the outside world and even to the couple themselves), he can't for example emotionally connect with his spouse or read body language, which causes a lot of problems, hurt and trauma within a marriage. If couples are not aware that this is what the problem/root cause is, they may think the spouse is doing this on purpose or blame themselves.
Given how much wisdom there is in this book mashAllah, I think it would be helpful to create more accessible versions too. For example, for those that have dyslexia or ADHD (or people who may not be used to reading long texts), it may be helpful to have a summary with the key points either at the end of each chapter or perhaps a separate book summarizing the key points in bullet proof format. This could also then be made into audio book for those who are blind or struggle with reading.
In summary, I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering getting married and those who are married too, and it's a perfect gift to give to those getting married.
I've bought this handbook for two of my friends, myself and recommended it to many others. Brilliant read for readers like myself who are engaged and for others who are already married.
It takes you on a full chronological journey of marriage, it is detailed and gives you an insight of what marriage should look like.
I felt that once I had read the entire book, it answered a lot questions and queries any engaged individual may have.
The accompanied lectures are also immensely beneficial on youtube too.
Highly recommend, very useful handbook not just before marriage but a book which you will definitely refer to throughout your married life.
I haven’t finished the book yet but so far it was really beneficial and an overall good book for marriage. We learn little about this subject and learn less about it at school or even home.
An absolute essential text for those looking for a spouse or already married! An easy to understand guide taken from the Quran, Sunnah and life experiences of others! Jazkallah khayrun for providing it for me!
this is an amazing resource that has transformed my relationships and in my experience every Muslim community should be trained in this tarbiyah for the survival of Muslim families. MashaAllah.
