Courses for the Married

happy-malaysian-couple

Although, I have my reservations on some of JAKIM notions, but this one comes in the right place and time.. Change starts by the admission of wrongdoing.. During the last 50 years, and due to many complex reasons, people; particularly Muslims, had failed in the proper upbringing of their children.. While Baby-Boomers had lowest divorce rates, generations X & Y have the highest.. Anyways, as Authorities, worldwide could not invent reliable and realistic approach, the problem escalated further, with abuse, drugs, depression and hooliganism spread among young generations, across all cultures, religions and economies.. The Malaysian initiative is very much appealing, subject to how tit will be carried forward and controlled.. The controversial notions of JAKIM would double the skeptics on the outcomes, yet it is a good grounds for reform.. Hope some NGOs and Authorities would imitate.. and improve..

 

Malaysia Jakim proposes compulsory course for married Muslim couples

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 — The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) has proposed for married Muslim couples to attend a post-marriage course aimed at strengthening the family institution and reducing the divorce rate in the country.

Jakim Family, Social and Community Development director Zakuan Sawai said his division had prepared a working paper on the proposal for the concurrence of the state Islamic Religious departments.

“The proposal seeks among others, to compel Muslim married couples to attend the three-day, two-night course which focuses on domestic issues, marital relationship and children upbringing,” he told Bernama here today.

Zakuan said the course, in four phases, targeted couples who had been married for one to five years, six to 10 years, and 11 to 20 years and above.

According to him, Jakim emphasised mainly on couples who had been married for only one to five years, as the group was found, in a study done by the department, to experience the most instances of marital discord.

“This is because they are still in the process of familiarising themselves with one another,” he noted.

He said efforts to develop the course were initiated in 2012 and a pilot project was currently being held here to obtain public feedback on the present module.

“The course is introduced to civil servants before being expanded to the public,” he said.

He said the course vastly differed from the pre-marriage course as it dwelled more liberally on marital issues including husband-wife health and relationship. — Bernama
