Who the heck in their right mind wants to get married today? That's what I said to every married person I knew and everyone stricken with single-itis (an incurable disease). The pure Muslim version of Marrriage just didn't fit right with the people I saw around, including family. They said one thing, Islam promoted another. Islam said be kind, the married habitually used their slippers "lightly".

In my youth I took to studying just like a sponge absorbs water. One iconic Muslim: Hamza Yusuf, the 'call him what you will' Shaykh of Islam, was inspirational for me and reinforced my faith in God and people as a teenager. A few years ago I was given his CD collection 'Rights and Responsibilities of Marriage', which gives the whole Shariah perspective (Islamic laws) of the legal rights (haquq) and perhaps more importantly, the responsibilities of each married person. This is seriously a brilliant gold mine based on the Qur'an and Sunnah which every single person, Muslim or not, Married or with single-itis, really needs to know.

Productive marriage in Islam is the centre to a functioning society. So marriage is full of transformation, intimacy, but it is primarily a contractual agreement. That means it's a deal, a business partnership. Two people read their legal rights and responsibilities towards the other party, and willingly sign a document to live by those laws in tranquility and harmony. The thing is, the stupid problems that happen in marriage over trivial, tiny issues, originate mostly because one party (*cough*-the-husband-*cough*) doesn't understand their responsibility towards the other. And then the other party (the wifey) doesn't read up on all her rights so she's left feeling guilty for every argument and fight.

There are a number of set legal rights for both husband and wife in Islam and here on Muslimness, I would like to present you with these lessons I learned in life and from this CD collection.

I suppose this is a foundation 'course' to studying the etiquete and guidelines to marriage therefore do not depend solely on this mini-series, and forgive me for any mistakes I make.
