  • 1. Based on the book by Gary Chapman, “The Five Languages of Love”
  • 2. “The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.” ― Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi Photo by nono Farah on Flickr available under a Creative Commons Attribution License
  • 3.  There is no one definition. It is organic, a process, where just like a garden if nurtured and looked after it grows into a beautiful relationship full of intimacy and love.
  • 4.  Just like a bank account, you have to make deposits before you make withdrawls. Every day, multiple times a day, you have to make a deposit. A kind word, a look, a touch, a gesture, a call,…

  • 9.  Say good things to your spouse and about your spouse, eg “ I love you, appreciate you,…”: Who did the Prophet (SAW) love the most? “O Messenger of Allah, who do you love most?” Prophet Muhammad replied “Aisha….” (Bukhari) Photo by Chris Kamal Zarif on Flickr available under a Creative Commons Attribution License
  • 10. “When I am with you, we stay up all night. When you're not here, I can't go to sleep. Praise God for those two insomnias! And the difference between them.” Rumi
  • 11. “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” - Mark Twain
  • 12.  This is amongst other things about being in the present. When the Prophet (SAW) was at home he focused on the family. Whoever he met he gave his full and undivided attention. 110%. Togetherness has to do with focused attention not just physical proximity. Photo by am & Faiz available under a Creative Commons Attribution License
  • 13. “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi
  • 14.  Gift giving is universal. It is an expression of appreciation, love, and more. The Prophet (SAW) was the most generous and there are many examples of him both giving and receiving gifts. Gifts may or may not have monetary value. Make it personal, thoughtful, based on on an occasion or non-occasion. Photo by Salim Fadley available under a Creative Commons Attribution License
  • 15. “In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ― Rumi
  • 16.  Show Your Love Through Actions. Find out the likes and dislikes of your spouse. Read his or her body language, not everything is explicitly said. What can you do around the house to help? How can you take care of your self, hygiene, beautify yourself, fitness, and other ways to show your spouse, you care? The Prophet was described by his wife that ‘he was in the service of his family’ (Bukhari)
  • 17. “I want to see you. Know your voice. Recognize you when you first come 'round the corner. Sense your scent when I come into a room you've just left. Know the lift of your heel, the glide of your foot. Become familiar with the way you purse your lips then let them part, just the slightest bit, when I lean in to your space and kiss you. I want to know the joy of how you whisper "more” ― Rumi
  • 18.  Intimacy is built on all the senses. Kissing, flirting, embracing, holding hands, cuddling as well as making love are all parts of physical intimacy. The Prophet (SAW) would passionately kiss his wife, and then leave for prayer without performing wudu accord to Aisha (RA) Photo by dMap Travel Guide on Flickr available
  • 19.  What do you appreciate most about your spouse?  What makes you feel most loved?  What do they say or do that hurts most?  What do you wish your spouse knew about what you desire above all else?  How do you express your love to your spouse?
