Married Students

Posted: June 21, 2010 in Student Life

The Islamic University of Madinah is truly a fantastic place for young, practicing Muslims to really focus on their studies. However, it is not uncommon for such young, practicing Muslims to lose their focus because of the human need for marriage.

To fulfill that need and get back on track, a large number of students do marry whilst they are studying. However, it generally comes with a great deal of hardship not just for the student, but for their families as well.

Unfortunately, the university at present does not look after the needs of married students who are enrolled in the initial Arabic program or the subsequent undergraduate degree program. It is only if students begin higher studies that they may receive some sort of limited assistance from the university.

Despite the difficulties – financial, legal, and otherwise – students have been doing all sorts of things so as to be able to bring their wives with them to live in Madinah. It can be quite costly, and it could be quite risky, but there are still ways in which marriage is possible.

See below for more information and for helpful pointers provided by students who had to live through some seriously rough scenarios – may Allah help us all.
