The Engagement Period
This should be seen as an opportunity for spiritual and personal growth – a growing up time for a new beginning. It is time to get to know one’s own nafs better and the nafs of one’s intended spouse, to build the proper spiritual foundation with which to go into a marriage.
Since nikah is also a comprehensive union involving families as well, it is best to use the time to know each other’s families for ultimately it is our families who help us build and define our value systems.
