Companionships: Single Mingle
Saturday, April 28, 2012

COMPANIONSHIPS will host an opportunity for serious Muslim Singles to mingle with other serious minded single Muslims within a chaperoned and discreet setting.

Our married advisors will be on hand to introduce, initiate conversations, and support you throughout the day.

We encourage all Muslim singles to explore outside of their comfort zone and have open and honest conversations. 

There was a time when...... a woman would see one attribute of a man and be ready to marry him......... and a man would see one attribute of a woman and be willing to marry her.

Now......a woman questions one attribute of a man and walks away and a man questions one attribute of a woman and walks away.

How did we get here?  Where do go from here?

 Hear what Imam Mohammad Magid has to say about this.......
and challenge yourself to see beyond today.

John Gottman's Marriage Tips

Since 1973, Dr. John Gottman has studied marriage and learned what makes marriages fail, what makes them succeed, and what can make marriages a source of great meaning. By examining partners’ heart rates, facial expressions, and how they talk about their relationship to each other and to other people, Dr. Gottman is able to predict with more than 90% accuracy which couples will make it, and which will not. What advice does Dr. Gottman have to offer? Below are some of his top suggestions for how to keep your marriage strong.

Seek help early. The average couple waits six years before seeking help for marital problems (and keep in mind, half of all marriages that end do so in the first seven years). This means the average couple lives with unhappiness for far too long.

Edit yourself. Couples who avoid saying every critical thought when discussing touchy topics are consistently the happiest.

Soften your "start up." Arguments first "start up" because a spouse sometimes escalates the conflict from the get-go by making a critical or contemptuous remark in a confrontational tone. Bring up problems gently and without blame.

Accept influence.
A marriage succeeds to the extent that the husband can accept influence from his wife. If a woman says, "Do you have to work Thursday night? My mother is coming that weekend, and I need your help getting ready," and her husband replies, "My plans are set, and I'm not changing them". This guy is in a shaky marriage. A husband's ability to be influenced by his wife (rather than vice-versa) is crucial because research shows women are already well practiced at accepting influence from men, and a true partnership only occurs when a husband can do so as well.

Have high standards.
Happy couples have high standards for each other even as newlyweds. The most successful couples are those who, even as newlyweds, refused to accept hurtful behavior from one another. The lower the level of tolerance for bad behavior in the beginning of a relationship, the happier the couple is down the road.

Learn to repair and exit the argument.
Successful couples know how to exit an argument. Happy couples know how to repair the situation before an argument gets completely out of control. Successful repair attempts include: changing the topic to something completely unrelated; using humor; stroking your partner with a caring remark ("I understand that this is hard for you"); making it clear you're on common ground ("This is our problem"); backing down (in marriage, as in the martial art Aikido, you have to yield to win); and, in general, offering signs of appreciation for your partner and his or her feelings along the way ("I really appreciate and want to thank you for.…"). If an argument gets too heated, take a 20-minute break, and agree to approach the topic again when you are both calm.

Focus on the bright side.
In a happy marriage, while discussing problems, couples make at least five times as many positive statements to and about each other and their relationship as negative ones. For example, "We laugh a lot;" not, "We never have any fun". A good marriage must have a rich climate of positivity. Make deposits to your emotional bank account.

To be honest  me & my family are searching in UK/India & Middle East!!!!...and still it is very very difficult to find a spouse.It just goes to show that only Allah can grant a spouse even through you can search extensively. Just remember me once in my dua.My criteria is just those three...and yeah I am not looking for divorced/widowed sisters as I have never married myself..

What about if the guy has everything one is looking for but is 15-20 years older and old school in the thought process. Will such a relationship work?...

The above is noting his below average looks(which is perfectly fine), earning less than the female counterpart (which is also not a problem at all).

I think every person is different. If you are fine with someone that much older and with his thought process it's up to you. But it should be something carefully thought about, and do istikharah too of course!!

I can't believe that in the city of London, with it's sizable Muslim population, especially of unmarried sisters, you have not been able to find anyone. Your criteria must be a little stricter than that? It's just so odd.

Assalamalikum Amna, I know you feeling very down but just look at people below you. I was also feeling a bit down since I am searching for quite some time and nothing seems to happen..but I just stumbled upon a two profile within the last 24 hrs in an popular matrimonial website.Reading both these sisters profile made me realize how merciful Allah has been to me. One of the sisters has kidney failure and another is blind in one eye & has other complications....I was disappointed but after reading both these profiles ..I started thanking Allah for all the blessing allah has given me. You are being tested by Allah but pray & thanks allah for all the things he has given you...and inshallah will turn the tide and grant you a good spouse.

“Verily, with hardship there is relief” (Qur’an 94:6)...If you examine your life, you will realize that you must have faced difficulties for some time and then immediately after that Allah has replaced with ease.
