The book "Encouraging Marriage & Discouraging Divorce" by W estern trained medical scientist Dr. Gohar Mushtaq is an excellent source of inspiration and information for Muslim youth and Muslim elderly alike. This book accentuates the benefits of marriage and explains that marriage is not just simply “living together” but it has profound medical and social benefits. Quite uniquely, this book also provides, in a scientific way, an in-depth evidence for the terrorizing harms of divorce on individuals, children and society at large. Practical suggestions have also been provided to young Muslim couples to avoid conflicts in their marital life and lead a blissful, nuptial life. The author has provided evidence from Qur’an and Sunnah, a wealth of statistics, a sound reasoning to explain them, and evidences from 100s of published scientific studies to make a scientific case to encourage marriages and discourage divorce.

Today, we are living in the age of Dajjal. The present day culture of Dajjal is inherently against the family system. In the modern age, legal changes have made divorce easier and the stigma of divorce has largely disappeared from almost all the modern societies. Marital breakdown and divorce harms individuals as well as the whole society. In the words of Patrick Fagan, a cultural expert and former family counselor: “The effects of marital breakdown on national prosperity and the well-being of individual children are like the action of termites on the beams in a home's foundations. They are weakening, quietly but seriously, the structural underpinnings of society.” Social scientific studies have demonstrated that children of divorced parents suffer physically, mentally and emotionally. Such children encounter deprivations, addictions and failures in their lives. Divorce increases poverty level of families. Divorce of parents leaves a deep psychological scar on the personalities of children for the rest of their lives. Children from divorced parent families commit more crimes than children from intact families. In the United States alone, for instance, over half of prison inmates are from broken homes. Parental divorce also results in more child abuse, child neglect, early deaths and increased suicide rates of kids. Children of divorced parents perform poorly in schools and colleges and have lower graduation rates as compared to children from intact, always-married parents as it is shown in this book. Islam does not totally ban divorce. Of course, in cases of severe need, Islam has kept this exit door open. In Islam, divorce is the last resort for married couple to end their problems. Divorce is definitely lesser of the two evils when it is compared to the physical violence or adultery of the marital partner. However, the evil consequences of divorce are horrifying, terrifying and petrifying and Muslims need to be educated about those harms of divorce so that they can make an intelligent decision in cases of marital conflict.
