All praise be to Allah.

One of the most important things in life is Nikha yet Nikha Nama(Marriage contract) is one of those things that we never pay much attention to. It is something that all couples must read before entering this sacred relation.

In today's modern world where much hype is given to women's rights and gender equality in society, many people fail to give a little thought to the marriage contract, especially our sisters. It is not considered important enough. My dear beloved sisters why don’t you struggle to find your rights in your Nikkah Nama?

The reason is we never try to read all rights of woman in Nikkah Nama (Marriage Contract) and other’s take advantage of it and cancel all the rights in Nikkah Nama without her permission. Islam gave huge respect and rights to a woman for her protection in all era. Then we should research on the rights of woman. So here are some rights that are written in the Nikkah Nama:

1. Your husband has no right over your earned money. It is up to the wife, if she wishes, she can spend it on house or other things. But if she doesn't then the husband cannot force her.

2. A husband not only has to provide for the household but also meet the expenses of wife's personal use. And this is mentioned in Nikha Nama.

3. A wife can demand money for breastfeeding a child and Islam gives her this permission.

4. After marriage, consent of both the partners is necessary for intimacy. If the wife is not ready, the husband cannot force it. Forced intimacy is considered as marital rape and a wife can sue her husband for that in an Islamic court.

5. A husband has no right over his wife's heritage. It is not obligatory for the wife to give anything of her heritage to her husband. If she wishes, she may.

6. It is the husband who has to spend on the marriage ceremony according to his capacity. Neither the man's family nor the woman but the Man himself.

7. There is no dowry in Islam but a husband has to pay Mahr to his wife which js agreed by both the parties.

Islam teaches us about simple marriage.

It’s very sensitive matter to resolve. We should be aware of each and every content of Nikkah Nama. It’s not about to just sign Nikkah documents. There are also many other rights in Marriage Contract that every woman and man should know before marriage.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
