Kisa Family


From engagement to ever after Islam-based secrets to building a solid, loving, tranquil relationship

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And among His signs is that He has created mates for you from among your own selves (the human family), that you may take comfort in them, and He ordained affection and mercy between you. There are indeed signs in that for a people who reflect.” (30:21)

Kisa Family Adulthood

Sometimes, our marriage reveals a gap we need to address in ourselves. Sometimes, we need just a bit of inspiration to nudge us towards our better selves, so we can shine with our better halves. Maybe our marriage is smooth and comfortable, but would nonetheless benefit from a boost. Maybe our marriage feels lopsided, and we need to recenter our niyyah, our intention, around Allah (swt).

A calendar is one of the best ways to organize, keep up our priorities and have a good reminder. Alḥamdulillāh with the effort of the Kisa Family Marriage team we are looking into different ways of helping couples strengthen their bond and communication. This monthly Marriage Connection Calendar is a new resource to help enhance your connection to Allah (swt) through your connection with your spouse. This monthly series aims to give our marriages a little push, every day, by focusing on twelve different aspects of wholesome, healthy marriages, from taqwā, or God-consciousness, in April, to ṣabr, or patience, in August. Within each month are small daily activities to connect our goal to Allah (swt), take account of ourselves, and leverage our actions within our marriage for the best results.

The monthly activities will be released every month
