Event description

Description

A matter we all face: love, gender relations and looking for a spouse...

An event not to be missed delivered by Sheikh Idris Watts who has extensive experience in marriage councelling and has gone through all the struggles that we go through!

A talk followed by a Q&A session to dispel all myths and answer all questions, then...
...FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: Sheikh Idris publicly discloses his own struggles in finding a spouse, how long it took and what he's learnt from his experiences!!

The aims of the Event:
1. To answer many of the questions that students have regarding gender relations as a youth, particularly in university
2. To shed some light on the reality of finding a spouse in this society, how is should be done, common mistakes and how to best go about it
3. To elaborate on what we need to work on as individuals before marriage; how to prepare for marriage, which is a big stage in an individual’s life, and what knowledge and character is needed before actively finding a spouse.

Common questions that cross our minds:
"What is love from an Islamic prespective?"
“Sheikh, how do I go about speaking to the opposite gender in Uni?”
“How do I deal with the fitnah in Uni?”
“How should I find a spouse?”
“How much say do I get in choosing a spouse?”
“How do I prepare for being a father/mother?”
“Do I need to be rich to get married?”
“Do I actually need to get married?”
"What are the essentials of a healthy marriage?"
“Can you please have a quick look at my rishta?”

**Join us after the lecture in the GR to pray Ishaa, behind Sheikh, to listen to his beautiful well-known recitation!
