Your Love Story

We believed in marriage once, let’s believe again!

Look, marriage gets a bad rap,

Commitment issues and cultural baggage gets between couples.

But the reality is it is the sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ

And when it’s done right, it opens the doors to countless blessings and opportunities.

But that all comes with the burden of choices:

Choosing your spouse, choosing to commit to them…

And choosing to end that relationship if you need to…

How can you navigate those decisions at every stage of your personal love story?

That’s what The Fiqh of Love is all about.
