Lesson 1-Introduction To The Course

Marriage is always a complex topic. Unfortunately, much of the current discourse in the Muslim community on the subject of marriage has a severe lack of reference to our sacred traditional Islamic texts. The Lamppost Education Initiative is pleased to present “The Married Life in Light of Imam Malik’s Muwatta’. This course will showcase and discuss multiple hadiths from the chapter on marriage in this classic work. Learn about courtship and finding the suitable mate, the dower,  rulings regarding the consummation of the marriage, and so much more.
The Married Life in Light of Imam Malik’s Muwatta is a seven-week, FREE online course with Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali, an assistant Professor of Islamic Law at Zaytuna College. Dr. Ali is an expert in Islamic law and the author and translator of numerous published works in Islamic law and belief.
