The book takes a detailed look at the cornerstone of society - the relationship between a man and a woman - throughout all the potential phases: the early years of marriage, marriage after children, and marriage after an empty nest.

Within these, the book covers important areas such as the sexual relationship; the true meaning of love; the impact of gender differences and personality differences on a relationship; how to deal with conflicts that will normally arise; how to grow together as a spiritual unit; living with the wider families and what to do when there are more serious problems at hand. The book ends with a look at the house of Ali and Fatima, and the relationship between these role models of all time.

The book is written in a manner and language that is easy to understand and will appeal to all. Throughout the book the Qur'an and hadith are referenced; these inspirational words are used to then offer practical advice. In addition, there are case studies in each chapter from the experiences of real people in real-life situations that will add an extra dimension to the issues covered.

Reviews

Sheikh Muhammad Hilli

I'm delighted to see the publication of Abbas and Shaheen's new book: 'Building a Successful relationship: The heavenly Path'. Having worked with both authors for many years on marriage and parenting workshops for the community, I am confident that they are well-placed in providing sound and practical advice for healthy and prosperous marital relationships. The book immediately engages the reader whilst incorporating key Islamic concepts for strengthening the family set-up. I am honoured to have contributed to this publication by writing a chapter on the blessed relationship between Imam Ali (a) and Sayida Fatima (a).
This book is a must for all Muslim couples who want to improve their understanding of this divinely-blessed institution, and as the Qur'an states in (25:74), make their families the source of tremendous pride and happiness in both worlds.
