Marriage

  1. Many erroneous wedding customs have been created which should be avoided by Ahmadis and we should not let ourselves be influenced by what is taking place around us. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih has elucidated this matter in details before. Secretaries tarbiyat and Lajna should bring this matter to the fore, time and again, so that members of the Jama’at are protected from these matters. (January 2, 2015).
  2. When young women from Pakistan and other places come to Western countries after marriage, they feel homesick and their parents are also worried about them. Their husbands and in-laws are unfair to them, and on top of that, a woman has to face societal scrutiny. People who are unfair in such matters, due to their personal egos, etc., should fear God. At times, officeholders do not fear God and get involved in the unfairness. (June 13, 2014).
  3. [According to a survey done by Amir Jama’at UK], the rate of incidents of culpability (regarding commitment of excesses) amongst men are three times that of women, whereas in 30% to 40% of the matters, it is the in-laws who create the friction. [Huzoor stated the same will be in true in USA or Canada as well.] The department of tarbiyat and all the auxiliaries need to be very proactive in this matter (November 10, 2006).
  4. Huzoor said matters relating to marriages of girls was an issue and that the ‘Rishta Nata’ (matrimonial affairs) department of the four to five neighboring countries should be actively involved in addressing it. (May 5, 2006).
  5. Huzoor cautioned against delaying a daughter’s marriage for her earnings and the practice of keeping her and the son-in-law under one’s roof. Huzoor instructed the Ansar, Khuddam and Lajna to counsel their respective members against such erroneous practices. (December 24, 2004).
