A family is an important unit in our life. In building this institution, marriage becomes a susceptible foundation that holds the family together. This comes with rights and responsibilities that we often neglect and take for granted.
In Our Family Our Legacy, Dr. Yasir Qadhi analyses the topic of a family institution by dissecting it into two dichotomous parts, which are spouses and children. In today’s world where family and marriage institutions are becoming less and less favourable, the author highlights the significance of keeping them steady, by suggesting tips and ways in understanding your spouses and children, as a way to make them understand you as well. He also reiterates the rights and responsibilities that we all should take note of and adhere to for a sakinah, mawaddah and raḥmah marriage in which children will bloom.
