    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College- Part1

    Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the […]

2nd Anniversary Celebration

| December 31, 2014 | 12 Comments

2nd Anniversary

Dear Readers, Hello and As Salamualaykum!

The Muslim Wedding Flight was launched on 31st December 2012 with a vision to bring awareness on some of the decadent social evils in the society. Today, it marks the 2nd Anniversary of a beautiful journey with your support and kind appreciation.

In these two years, attempts have been made to highlight some of the burning issues concerning the social evils in our society. The awareness is spreading slowly but steadily. Many youngsters are now able to understand and acknowledge the fact that these social evils particularly the dowry system that has plagued our society needs to be addressed.

This evil practice is so widespread that it has become part of our subconscious mind. Even today, a majority of parents believe that without the involvement of dowry, marriage is not possible and hence are stockpiling dowry items. Some parents do understand and know that dowry is an evil practice but show helplessness as they are afraid that their daughters will not get a suitable proposal without a fat dowry.

Parents who voluntarily offer huge dowries are not aware that they are part of this criminal group where brides are killed almost every day for the sake of dowry, where brides unable to bear the torture and humiliation meted out by in-laws for want of dowry are forced to commit suicides, where in-laws force the brides to abort female fetuses for want of a boy believing that girls are a burden to the family.

We all have habits that make or mar our lives. Habit has been defined as an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary. On a personal level, the majority of our day is governed by a series of habits whether good or bad. These habits reside largely in our subconscious mind, so we are unaware of them and don’t understand them. So unless we deliberately fight a habit the pattern will unfold automatically. It’s now time for parents to break out of this habit and help the society in eradicating the dowry system over a period of time. It may not happen suddenly as it is difficult to change habits that have been ingrained in the minds for several decades. However, individually avoiding dowry (giving or receiving) and spreading awareness in the society would go a long way in addressing this criminal issue.

There is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and everybody was sure that somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought anybody could do it, but nobody realized that everybody couldn’t do it. It ended up that everybody blamed somebody when nobody did what anybody could have.

If everybody stops fueling this crime, the society will sooner or later get rid of this evil system and parents will not worry as much as they do now.

In addition to the dowry system, marital conflicts and divorces are on the rise. Parents on one side are planning to get their daughters married while those seeking marriage have locked their dreams and hope for a blissful marital journey. Parents and those seeking a life partner should ensure that they do take care of the following:

BIODATA
PREMARITAL EDUCATION
PREMARITAL MEDICAL CHECKUP
PREMARITAL AGREEMENT
NO DOWRY

Today as I celebrate the 2nd year anniversary of this blog, my heartiest gratitude reaches out to you and I would like to thank you for keeping touch with the blog and for your kind appreciation and support in making this blog worthy to the community.

abigthankyou
Wish You A Great, Bright, Blissful, Delightful, Energetic, Healthy, Mind Blowing, Prosperous, Terrific HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015.

    would like to add ‘Bank statement’ and ‘appointment letter from the latest company’ as I’ve came across few cases around where things said were not existing in reality.

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Very true Akshar. We submit all these documents for a bank loan or an installment purchase but would never like to disclose it if required for a marriage proposal.

      Thank you so much Ragini for your kind appreciation. I only hope and pray that brides are not burnt any more for the sake of dowry and at the same time those seeking a spouse do take all precautions before tying the knot.

      Thank you once again.
