My mom is a very special lady to me.
The thing with our parents is that they have wisdom that only experience can afford.
Today, I asked her about her thoughts on marriage in Islam. As usual, she told me something very wise. She said:
“Nowadays, people place far more importance on their careers than their marriages. Muslims need to view marriage as a start up company. If your boss asks you to work harder, you not only do it, but do it gladly! But if your husband asks for a simple kindness like a glass of water, it’s a BIG deal. Spouses are ready to walk away when things get tough. If people placed as much importance on their marriages like they did on their careers, the marriage would be a lot easier and happier.”
I couldn’t agree more.
