Islamic Premarital Coaching and Training
“Make a good choice of who will bear your children.
Marry those who are compatible with you.”
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
(reported by Ibn Majah, Al-Bayhaqi)
The decision to get married is one of the most important decisions a person makes in life. In fact, personal relationships, especially the marital one are essential to our well-being. Therefore, investment of time and energy in the selection process and in the understanding of our future spouse and of ourselves is of utmost importance.
It is much easier to make the effort initially by laying a sound foundation for marriage than to struggle with rectifying the damage after the fact. Receiving training and coaching before marriage prevents much marital conflict and suffering.

Premarital Coaching for Singles: It’s Never Early Enough to Prepare
Singles may also take this coaching series to learn about the stages of the selection process: how to recognize and handle any red flags in a potential partner, reasons for wanting to marry and whether it is their personal desire at that time or just pressure from family and whether they are really prepared emotionally, physically, psychologically, financially, and spiritually for marriage. With singles, we focus on identifying strengths and weaknesses and we provide an assessment of any psychological issues such as depression, anger, chronic sadness in order to have them addressed before marriage.
