Marriage Preparation Course (MPC)

This is a course to support the next generation become better prepared for the challenges and responsibilities of married life, which are ever growing with the increasingly fast movement of today’s society. Unfortunately, unlike other aspects of life, no qualification or training is required to marry and become parents, although this is one of the most life changing phases in our lives.

ECYS is offering the MPC course to allow ‘brides and grooms to be’ to discuss the responsibilities and challenges they may face after marriage, and how best to nurture these responsibilities, and how best to address challenges if they do arise, so that a successful marriage is preserved. Besides the roles of a wife and husband, the course will also touch on aspects of motherhood and fatherhood.

The MPC course will be conducted by an experienced Imam, with segregation for sisters, taking into account the Islamic traditions, teachings and expectations. Reading books on marriage is very helpful and advised, of course, however, attending our course will allow attendees to discuss matters with people of experience who can bring mountains of benefit and wisdom.

Year on year, new cases are arising, where marital problems are dividing families and causing unease, and this rare opportunity of a MPC course will help individuals ‘prevent’ such problems occurring, and at best, deal with them effectively, if they arise, reducing chances of unwanted consequences resulting.

MPC Syllabus:

1. Choosing the right partner.
2. The Islamic marriage ceremony.
3. Responsibilities of the husband and wife.
4. Temperament of ‘man’ and ‘woman’.
5. In-laws and relatives.
6. Handling differences.
7. Dealing with grievances.
8. Rights and responsibilities of parents.
9. Rights and responsibilities of children.
10. Ultimate accountability to Allah.
MPC is an invaluable half day course held twice a year to cover the main points of the above topics, and will allow opportunities to ask and discuss questions. Cost: £10.
