  • How important are honeymoons?

    Are honeymoons really that important? Would you recommend a honeymoon to a newlywed couple? why and why not. I'd love to here your answers.

    As long as its halal I don't see a problem with it. For instance, don't spend a honeymoon in a casino resort.

      Traveling with your spouse is one of the best ways to get to know them.

        Show us evidence from the Qur'an and Sunnah to say "Honeymoons" are important

        If you can't then they are clearly unimportant imitations of the kuffar, otherwise the Rasul صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم and the Sahaba radiallahu anhum would have practiced it.

                A honeymoon doesn't necessarily mean spending a little fortune by going abroad to exotic locations. It could just be 3-4 days together with your spouse in privacy - away from home, family and friends - in a romantic , dreamy place. It could be a local resort /hill-station /the countryside.

                It is a sort of stress-reliever after a hectic and tiring wedding.

                It helps the couple to bond and get familiar with one another.

                You also get to explore your partner while exploring new places together.

                A relaxed environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the routine life enables the love between you and your partner to blossom.

                If you've had an arranged marriage and are expected to move in with the in-laws, the honeymoon acts as an icebreaker of sorts for couples and gives them the golden chance to spend some well-needed quality time together before responsibilities set in. You cannot really get to know your spouse on a personal level if you're sharing a house with 10 other people.

                Going on a honeymoon is a way to create memories that you would cherish for a lifetime.

                You'll usually be dining out, so, it will help you to know about your partner’s taste in food and drinks.

                You'll get to know your partner's level of piety and imaan as to how much importance they give to Salah, Qur'an and azkaar while travelling.

                A honeymoon gives a couple quiet time to imagine and plan their future together

                    Some of the things you mention you need to find out before you get married.

                    Honeymoons are overrated. Get down to business first before you think of play.

                      8 powerful habits to succeed


                      1. Wake up early!
                      2. Do it as soon as possible, you could die tonight so make the best of today
                      3. Remember your life is unique, don't compare yourself to others. Use that jealousy as an energy to make your life a success"
                      4. Have healthy habits. Set a time each day to exercise. Try with the mindset you're only going to do some jumping jacks for 5 seconds and the next thing you know, you're doing a workout!
                      5. Read, read, read. Ponder over the Qur'an, learn more. Put the idiot box (TV) away
                      6. Take note. Desires make slaves out of kings and patience makes kings out of slaves.
                      7. Results aren't just worldly. Results are also about perseverance, retaining dignity, being honest, being honourable, doing good unto others.
                      8. Always encourage others especially our brothers and sisters, let them know making mistakes is okay, we all make mistakes, do not ever undermine them and make them feel incompetent. This is also true for the dunya, so what if they don't get the maths sum right the first time, that is what LEARNING is.

                          There should be a thread about where everyone went for their honeymoons. Or maybe I'll just hijack this thread. Feel free to reply

                            It's kind of surprising how some seemingly "religious" Muslims behave when they're travelling.

                            In the Shariah, the prayer is shortened and made easier during travelling, yet, some Muslims (who're 5-timers at home) don't feel a tang of guilt or remorse leaving them completely while travelling.

                            Secondly, many sisters who wear abaya, hijab and niqaab completely remove them while travelling. I'm kind of surprised when I see sisters who generally wear abaya and niqaab outdoors post pics of their holidays as Whatsapp statuses without any sort of hijaab.

                            Some dayyooth men even gift their newly-wed wives sexy and revealing outfits especially to wear during travelling. Dude, if you want your wife to wear those clothes for you, you can ask her to wear them when you're both alone, why make her a showpiece for the entire world??

                            And then, there are people who only drink, smoke, gamble, go clubbing etc with their partner when they're on a holiday "to unwind and relax".

                            You may not know all these details before you travel with them, cos some people have one face in society (where people know them), and another face where they behave differently because no one knows them in that place.

                            So, you do get a glimpse of your spouse's taqwa and imaan during the honeymoon.

                            Only a glimpse...mind you. You'll get a real image when you find what they're upto when they travel to places like Bangkok, Phuket and so on with their friends.

                              They are behaving like non Muslims, why be surprised by this. Google the term honeymoon and what you describe is what you see. So much for the "if the western ideals go against Islam obviously Islam is followed".

                              This true face will come out after a month of two of living with each other anyway, you don't need a honeymoon to find this out. In any case most of these couples are a match for each other. They have not been duped. They are 90% westernised.
