MarriageSuccess.ca is a landmark educational film series. For the first time Islamic scholars are presented together with professional therapists and dramatic artists in 10 exceptional documentaries about getting married and staying married.
Some of the most common challenges faced by newly married couples are featured in 6 "Before Marriage" films. Each short film deals with how to understand and overcome a specific issue. For married couples, there are 4 films that offer “Winning Strategies” to help improve relationships. Every film comes with detailed Film Notes. Our films can also be shared through our YouTube Channel.
This pioneering initiative is intended as a community resource. Please help spread the word!
Funding for this site was made possible through the support of two Canadian charitable organizations committed to education and personal excellence.
