Description: 

In this collection of 40 ĥadīths, the author addresses a subject that affects most people – if not all: marriage. He deals with questions on the purpose and significance of marriage, and tackles more controversial areas including forced marriage, marrying without the permission of one’s parents, and domestic violence. The ĥadīths are supplemented by a generous commentary which goes beyond a simple explanation of the wording of the ĥadīth to include discussions on how the ĥadīth is to be operationalised, or put into practice, and what implication it has on marital life.
