Sunday talk: Islamic rights & obligations within the family

Posted May 1st, 2010 by admin and filed in Monthly talks

Coming this May: This country suffers from a major crisis in the breakdown of family life hence the country is sometimes referred to as ‘broken Britain’.

When family life breaks down, this not only affects the Individuals involved but also affects the society as a whole. Islam places great importance on the family life, due to the impact it has on society.

There are clear roles and responsibilities placed on Individual within the family in Islam – The ‘husband’ & ‘wife’ have their rights and responsibilities towards each other, the children and parents also have their rights and responsibilities towards each others. Only by maintaining this can we have a strong and balanced family life. The alternative is chaos and the eventual breakdown of family life in the society.

This Sunday’s talk is especially organised as a reminder to everyone (according to Quran and Sunnah) of their rights and responsibilities towards each other so that we can continue to function as a strong family unit unlike the wider community. Only when we follow the guidance of Allah and His Messenger we can truly succeed.

Please try to attend.
