Alhamdulillāh, this book which is in your hands ‘A Gift for Nikāh’ by our dear and respected Shaykh Abdul Raheem Limbada (Hāfizahullāh) is an invaluable addition to the Muslim bookshelf on the topic of marriage. It is equally beneficial for those seeking to get married, those already married, and those who have children of marriageable age. The book comprehensively and systematically covers the various issues surrounding marriage; from the virtues of marriage, advice on selecting a suitable spouse, to marriage itself and maintaining a healthy marriage once married. May Allāh SWT reward his efforts and the efforts of all those who have assisted him in any way, and may He make this book a means of helping Muslims to uphold healthy Islamic marriages, Ameen.
