Marriage Counselling (Case Studies)

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud (RA):

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said to us,

O young men, those of you who can support a wife should marry, for it (marriage) controls the gaze and preserves one from immorality. And whoever cannot (marry) should fast, for it is a means of reducing sexual desire.”

[Bukhari]

Course Overview

As part of their role, imams, health, and social care workers are getting more involved in marital counselling. However, few of these workers have professional training in counselling and psychotherapy. Marriage counselling is considered part of the short-term care that Imams, health, and social care workers need to provide. Although the course is designed for the above professionals, it will also be beneficial for Muslims that are considering getting married.

From an Islamic perspective, the focus of marriage counselling or relationship counselling is to improve communication between spouses and address specific issues that are causing relationship problems.
