ISGH Pre-Marital Training
Islamic Pre-Marital Training and Marital Enrichment
In collaboration with Suhbah Institute (Suhbah Marriage Prep)
Suhbah means "companionship", "fellowship" or "to accompany". It comes from the same root letters as the word "Sahaabah" - the companions of Prophet Muhammad (S). At Suhbah Institute, our mission is to accompany and inspire individuals along their journey of growth by providing quality, nurturing and easily accessible Islamic learning that is applicable to our ever changing lives and circumstances - whether that be in our relationships with others, with ourselves, or with our Lord.
About ISGH Pre-Marital Training
ISGH Pre-Marital Training is a service provided by ISGH in Collaboration with Suhbah Institute's MARRIAGE PREP - a certified Islamic Pre-Marital Training and Marital Enrichment curriculum that brings together the best of two of the top premarital education curricula (Prepare/Enrich & SYMBIS) and is infused with Islamic principles and Fiqh of Marriage to prepare couples with skills and education to create sustainable, healthy, strong marriages. These sessions are geared towards both engaged couples and those in their first few years of marriage. The sessions utilize fun and engaging activities where couples not only learn tips from the leading marriage researchers and sunan of Rasulullah (S), but they also actively solve real conflicts with their partners, in class, in real time, during the break out sessions.
Certification & Benefits
This pre-marital and marital enrichment curriculum has been certified and verified by the state of Texas’s Healthy Marriage program, which means that anyone in Texas who takes the course gets a certificate of $60 off their marriage license and no 72-hour waiting period as long as they complete the full 8 hours.
The Need for Pre-Marital Training and Marital Enrichment Training for Muslims
The divorce statistics in the the Muslim community are at over 33% and even though Allah tells us in the Quran to seek help from mediators when the husband and wife are facing trouble (Surah Nisa, ayah 35) we STILL don't seek help. We have to fight the stigma in our community before the statistic rises and More families are torn apart!
Instead of allowing couples to dive into the deep end hoping they don't drown - in regards to something that Rasulullah (S) called "half our faith", we should proactively educate and train couples so they are empowered and equipped with the skills to make good decisions in this beautiful - yet difficult - union of marriage.
ISGH Pre-Marital Training will take place several times a year in group sessions at the ISGH River Oaks Islamic Center (ROIC) in Houston, TX. Registration, payment, and attendance of both engaged individuals is required.
The classes take place Fridays from 6pm-9pm and Saturdays 10am-3pm. See the schedule below to find a date best for you and your fiance.
