About The Book

Islam teaches that marriage is ‘half of religion’. Because it fulfills so many basic needs of individuals and of society, it is the cornerstone upon which the whole Muslim life is built.

Marriage in the modern world is in crisis. To protect the spirit of cooperation and happiness which is the sign of the real Islamic marriage, careful thought needs to be given to the practices which help husband and wife to live together and respect each other’s needs and rights.

This very readable book takes the reader through the relevant passages in the Quran and Hadith, and goes on to discuss the main social, emotional and sexual problems that can affect relationships, suggesting many practical ways in which these can be healed.

About The Author

Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood (born 1942) is a British Muslim author, who served as Head of Religious Studies at William Gee High School, Hull, England. Her name was Rosalyn Rushbrook.

She was among the first UK Muslims to receive one of the Muslim News Awards for Excellence in 2001, the Muhammad Iqbal Award for Creativity in Islamic Thought, mainly for her work in education. She describes herself as a moderate Muslim and has a keen interest in Islamic history, especially the lives of the female companions of Muhammad, and the genealogies and intermarriages of Muhammad and his companions. Her main aims have been to promote knowledge of Islam to non-Muslims, and to counter Islamic extremism.

Her other main interests include inter-faith dialogue, and the campaign against various abuses of Muslim women – such matters as forced marriage, child marriage, female genital mutilation, and "honour" murders. Her latest book is 'Need to Know: Islam', for the HarperCollins series. Her major work on the Life of Muhammad is awaiting publication by the Islamic Research Institute of Islamabad. In 2008 she was one of four recipients of the Global Peace and Unity Lifetime Achievement Awards, in her case, for literature.

She collaborated with Ghurlam Sarwar in writing Islam: Beliefs and Teachings for the UK Islamic Mission (UKIM).
