Need a Marriage Boost? Read"Traversing the Highs and Lows of Muslim Marriage" By: Sadaf Farooqi
Marvelous, Marvelous book, Masha’Allah. This book covers so many relevant and important aspects on how to have a successful marriage, bi’ithnillah. Sister Sadaf mentions an extremely important point in her book: She says that many singles enter marriage with pre-formed beliefs and unrealistic expectations about marriage.
