Should Every Muslim Get a Prenup?


In this video, you will learn how to save 50% of your money by taking practical steps to protect your financial well-being in the event of divorce.

The video starts with a discussion on how conflict can reveal a person's true character, and how it is essential to have a clear understanding of your partner's character before entering a marriage. The video then goes on to explain how divorce can be financially devastating, with bitter and resentful divorced couples often attempting to deplete each other's finances. The video emphasizes the importance of imposing limits on oneself and not using children as pawns in disputes.

The video then explains the importance of having a prenuptial agreement, or prenup, to protect one's finances in case of divorce. A prenup is a legal document that outlines how assets will be divided in case of divorce, and it is essential regardless of how much money a person enters the marriage with. The video acknowledges that discussing the need for a prenup is not romantic, but emphasizes that it is easier to have a difficult discussion when a couple is on good terms rather than bad.

The video recommends having a lawyer review the prenup to ensure it is enforceable and complies with the law and highlights that flat fee or limited scope arrangements can save on costs. The video also warns that a prenup does not pre-settle child support and custody, as these decisions are made by a judge.

The video emphasizes the importance of marrying someone who has a healthy sense of right and wrong, knows they are being watched by Allah SWT, and understands Islam as a way of life.

The video concludes by highlighting that even if a prenup is unnecessary, just knowing it is there can be a source of comfort and reduce the pressure of any disagreement. The video prays that viewers will never need to use a prenup and serves as a reminder to take practical steps to protect their financial well-being and avoid the emotional and financial turmoil of divorce.

Overall, this video is an essential resource for anyone looking to protect their financial well-being and ensure that they enter a marriage with a clear understanding of their partner's character and values.
