"In her brief comprehensive work, Initiating and Upholding an Islamic Marriage, Ustadha Hedaya Hartford presents valuable advice to Muslim couples—young and old. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge and experience, joined from years of study and counseling, Ustadha Hartford not only identifies the causes of many contemporary marital problems, but she also addresses them with penetrating and practical solutions. Her book is a valuable addition to every Islamic library."
"In our time of increasing fitna—especially in sex and gender-related issues—Islamic Marriage is a breath of fresh air. It contains what should be experienced as newly-rediscovered Prophetic teaching, healing, encouragement, and hope for later-day Muslims. It contains the essential Divine recipes for familial and social success and happiness. It should be required reading for any English-speaking Muslim of marriageable age."
Dr. Gibril Fouad Haddad
