The Compassionate Family
This book is an inspiring collection of advice and guidance on family life, marriage and gender roles by Imam Sayyid Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution.
Family is the foundation of society, and from it stems new life and a thriving purpose to develop and achieve great things. It is the cornerstone of life and is humanity’s greatest social institution.
In Islam, marriage and the formation of a family is regarded as one of the most important objectives for a person to achieve. This importance is demonstrated through the judicial and moral teachings of Islam, which guide us through an array of family issues in order to cater for our spiritual and physical needs.
Today, we live in a world where secularism, individualism and materialism have been aggressively pushed at the human consciousness such that family values are being undermined and eroded. This has resulted in moral decay and other harmful outcomes that prevent the attainment of long-term happiness and stability.
This book is a humble contribution to address this important subject.
