A scholarly approach to marriage

You’ll use both your head and your heart when it comes to choosing your partner. Each event will blend humour from stand-up comedian and comedy actor Abdullah Afzal with scholarly talks by well-known television presenter Imam Ajmal Masroor, an influential magazine editor Sarah Joseph OBE. Ajmal will introduce an interactive scholarly talk about the significance of marriage in the Islamic faith as a formal reminder of the virtues and expectations of marriage. He will also lead discussions on the problems single young Muslims face when looking for a partner and what characteristics and personal attributes help make a good husband or wife. Sarah will lead discussions on the problems single young Muslims face when looking for a partner and what to look for when searching for your perfect mate. After these talks, participants will be able to prepare a ‘wish list’ of characteristics that are important to them so they can apply them to their profile search for their ideal partner.
