Cultural practices, family traditions, a lack of education and a poor Islamic ethos are all blamed for the problems that many couples go through in the Muslim community, leading to high divorce rates and broken families. However, cultural practices such as mistreating women are cited as the most common reason for family breakdown.
But all that is set to change, as religious teacher Sheikh Musleh Khan who lives in Toronto, Canada aims to address this issue. Sheikh Musleh is a marriage guidance counsellor and religious teacher, but is best known as the resident marriage expert at Pure Matrimony dot com.
Pure Matrimony is officially the world’s largest matrimonial site for practising Muslims searching for a like-minded spouse. The company has a success rate of at least 3 successful matches per week, and takes the role of educating Muslims on the matters of marriage very seriously.
Sheikh Musleh Khan has experienced first-hand the problems that a misunderstanding of rights and responsibilities can result in. Each and every day, Sheikh Musleh’s inbox is flooded with requests for help and guidance from men and women whose marriages are on the rocks and whose children are being affected badly.
Sheikh Musleh has been working closely with Pure Matrimony since its inception in 2009. ‘The problem with many marriages is that neither husband nor wife understands what their roles or responsibilities are according to Islam. Instead, they take their guidance from backward cultural practices which are un-Islamic and cause more harm than good. As a result, marriages are failing quickly and more frequently than ever.’
Shiekh Musleh Khan and Pure Matrimony will be holding a webinar event over two days to finally challenge cultural practices and teach Muslims exactly what is expected of them from a religious perspective.
The two day webinar event will be held as follows:
The Rights and Responsibilities of the Wife will take place on Tuesday 26th February 2013 at 7pm GMT.
The Rights and Responsibilities of The Husband will take place on Wednesday 27th February 2013 at 7pm GMT.
