The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Make marriage easy and zina difficult”
If we look at our society today, we will find that marriage has become the most difficult task for the young men and women, whereas there are doors – wide open – for zina. We have chained ourselves in the un-Islamic customs and traditions so much that marriage has become the paradise of the super rich only. Right from high mehr to whopping amounts of dowry and from luxurious dinner to expensive clothes and jewelry, all has made marriage a dream for most of the young people and their parents.
In this timely book, Sheikh Abdullah Nasih Ulwan delves deep into the issue of marriage and the obstacles that we have created in its way, leaving an open door for zina to creep in. The book provides the Islamic answer to this menace.

This small booklet is nothing less than a reminder for every son/daughter of every age and invites us to ponder as to whether we are giving our parents their due right or circumventing them, believing that we are ideal sons/daughters. At times we start thinking that by being good to our parents we are doing them a favour, however this books dispels this notion and sets things clear that being good to them is not a favour at all, rather it is their right for which every son/daughter will be held accountable.
