For Muslim individuals in the United States, marriage is one of the most popular and discussed topics in mainstream circles. It is an important milestone in many people’s lives, and beyond that, it’s a unique experience that must be well prepared for – just as one would prepare for anything else. Salma Abugideiri and Imam Mohamed Magid co-authored a book titled “Before you Tie the Knot”, to help Muslim couples prepare for the process of getting married and achieving a successful, long-lasting marriage. The authors present a unique approach, and combined have 40 years of experience counseling couples. Even more, it provides an Islamic framework to the marriage process and envisioning the dynamic as a healthy partnership. Mohamed Magid is the Executive Imam of All Dules Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center and the Chairman of International Interfaith Peace Corps (IIPC), as well as the former President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He is renowned in the Muslim community for his sermons.
