RESOURCE CENTRE –Islamic Marriage Bureau
Islamic Marriage Bureau at Family Resource Centre
(FRC) was set up with the aim of facilitating sustainable marriages
and blissful family life within the context of Islam. The Chief
Kadhi, the Chairman of SUPKEM, several Imams& Sheikhs from Nairobi
as well as concerned brothers and sisters came together, to look
into family issues affecting the Muslim Community in Kenya. Some
interesting observations came up;
That there were many educated, respectable and suitable young
Muslim Women eligible for marriage, waiting for suitable spouses
who are not forthcoming
That about 50% of marriages in Nairobi is between Muslims and
non-Muslims or Reverts who may convert to Islam for the sake
or marriage only

for various reasons
