The Book Tuhfatuzzow-Jain (Gift for Muslim Couple) is indeed a presentation to the newly wedded couples as well as to all the married couples. This is a collection of writing from the pen of Maulavi Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rah), who was a very prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning. It consists of various quotations from his books and all the quotations deal with the subject of marriage and after marriage relationship, as well as the various pitfalls of marriage, causes of breakdown and their causes. The Book also has various Sunnah traditions of the Prophet (SAW), Quranic verses and fine examples of real life incidents, different aspects of family life and explained how to run the institution of marriage successfully.

The book is not long-winded like many Islamic efforts are, being only 160 pages in length, and 17 short chapters. In those chapters the authors covers a wide variety of subjects, ranging from living arrangements to rights of the husband and wife to divorce. He does not spend a whole lot of space covering any one subject, but provides clear enough insight into what Muslims believe that ought to cause one to pause.
From some of the preceding comments here it is projected that the authors only talks about wife-beating, which is clearly not the case. That is not to say that the author does not mention it, but as already noted, he addresses a wide assortment of topics. Does the author embrace beating the wife for disciplinary reasons? Yes. But, that is Islam. It is something that can be used to expose Islam for the fraudulent system that it is, for no woman should be beaten by her husband because she supposedly did not do this or that for him.
In short, this a good, short exposure book on Islamic marriage relationships and ought to be read by those interested in knowing what Muslims believe, hopefully with a plan to counter some of the inanity. Because not all that the author writes about is tawdry or misogynistic. The husband caring and providing for one's wife and children are good things and is encouraged in this book.Read more ›
"a husband may scold her, beat by hand or stick, withhold money from her or pull her by the ears, but should refrain from beating her excessively.” I LOVE IT! EPIC!
I'd get this as a gag gift for some Muslim newlywed friends or something, wrap it with a bamboo stick, priceless night of laughs!
