FOREWORD

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, MOST GRACIOUS, MOST MERCIFUL

The Family Unit is The Axis of our society. A Healthy Family equals a Healthy Society. But, as Jasmine Khan so aptly portrays in this book, what’s happening behind closed doors to the families of today is leading to a moral breakdown in society.

Taken from a series of articles published by the author in the Muslim views, this book endeavours to unveil the ailments that plague the Muslim family of today and how to remedy them. The list of ailments is comprehensive and not exaggerated in the least.The solutions are taken from the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah [lifestyle] of our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw) and have been brilliantly contextualised for our contemporary society.

Jasmine Khan has written a refreshing book that has something for everyone in the family to reflect on. She has given us day to day life experiences that we can all relate to and clear advice on how to plot the way forward.

This book is a must read for every Muslim who seeks to improve their family ties, become a better parent, a more obedient child, a tolerant and respectful spouse, a compassionate sibling and just to be a good person that contributes to the moral upliftment  of the family unit.

It has been my honour and my pleasure to write this foreword and to recommend this book to our beloved community.
