Title: Islamic Marriage: 2 books in 1: Initiating and Upholding an Islamic Marriage & Your Islamic Marriage Contract
Author: Ustadha Hedaya Hartford
Publishing House: Al-Hedayah Institute For Islamic Sciences

This Little book of Divine recipes, Islamic Marriage, draws from the works of several highly respected Muslim scholars. The book clarifies the Sacred Law on marriage, presents Prophetic teachings on the subject, and gives plain guidance for entering into a marriage, and sustaining it with happiness once inside it. At a time when successful marriages are definitely on the decline, this book offers healing and encouragement, and hope for the attainment of felicity and success in this life and the next.
"Drawing on a wealth of knowledge and experience, joined from years of study and counseling, Ustadha Hedaya Hartford not only identifies the causes of many contemporary marital problems, but she also addresses them with penetrating and practical solutions..." Imam Zaid Shakir

This book is an explanation of various types of valid contracts made convenient. The contracts have been certified by Shaykh Hassan Al-Hindi of Damascus. They should be torn out and used as they are, since a change in the wording of the Type 2, Type 3, or Type 4 contract may cause the stipulations to be nullified.
A vast amount of useful information regarding the legal measures of the marriage contract. Along with sincere advice on taking protective measures on having a written contract, and registering it legally according to the country of state is explained. Finally, each contract, after its explanation is presented in one Arabic and 3 English fonts, providing a variety of originals for the bride and groom.
Perfect for anyone planning to be married, already married, or for mosques and Islamic Centers. Nothing of its kind has ever been written in English.

“In their valuable and long overdue volume, Your Islamic Marriage Contract, Hedaya Hartford and Ashraf Muneeb address one of the greatest problems plaguing Muslims in the West; the lack of adequate, standardized wedding contracts. This problem leads to grave consequences including invalid divorces and marriages. By presenting the reader with a number of variously formatted forms, all written in consultation with one of the Muslim World’s leading jurist consults, Hartford and Muneeb go a long way in addressing such problems. This book will prove an indispensable aid to Imams and Community leaders in America and elsewhere in the West.” - Zaid Shakir
