Product Description

We are always seeking. Seeking love. Seeking commitment. Seeking connections. Seeking someone who will fulfill moments of emptiness in our lives. Yet, in the chaos of today s fractured world, how do we find that spouse who will help ease the pain of this life while walking hand-in-hand with us on the path towards the next? Modern Muslim Marriage is an essential guide for navigating the way towards finding and maintaining a successful marriage through faith and commitment. From spouse selection and understanding the marriage process to enduring loss in love, this book provides the necessary tools for making the most of Muslim matrimony. The book also includes:

  • Spiritual Commentary by Yasmin Mogahed
  • Religious Commentary by Imam Sohaib Sultan
  • Theoretical Commentary by Anan Cosuew
  • Practical Commentary by Munira Lecovik Ezzeldine


"Every community of faith today is being forced to deal with the divorce culture and its baleful effects. The question is whether resources can be found inside our religious traditions to help people establish and sustain lasting and fulfilling marriages. In Modern Muslim Marriage, Suzy Ismail, a devout Muslim and a brilliant thinker and writer, shows that such vital resources are present in Islam. Hers is a book to be read by young Muslims contemplating marriage, and by parents and grandparents who wish to help them build marriages that are loving and solid enough to weather the storms."
Dr. Robert P. George
McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University,
Chairman Emeritus of the National Organization for Marriage

"How can a person whose life has been shaped by all of the materialistic forces underlying the modern, and now post-modern condition, successfully engage an institution that is predicated in large part on the spirituality that buttressed the pre-modern world? This is a question that Suzy Ismail endeavors to answer in, Modern Muslim Marriage. In so doing, Ismail does not look for easy, simple or simplistic answers. Instead, she offers the reader a riveting combination of advice and insights culled from the traditional sources of Islam, contemporary research, and hard-won personal insight and experience. Ismail's work is greatly enriched by the engaging contributions of leading Muslim experts on marriage, relationships and other relevant fields of endeavor. If you are serious about understanding what is needed to make a traditional institution like marriage work in today's world, regardless of your religion, you should seriously engage, Modern Muslim Marriage"
Imam Zaid Shakir, Zaytuna College

"In her book, Suzy Ismail has chosen a challenge far greater than writing a how-to manual for finding and maintaining the perfect Muslim marriage... This book is a valuable resource both for those considering marriage, and those who are working at it since, as Suzy says, (I)n order to build lasting unions, a conscious movement must occur."
