The family, which is the basic unit of
civilization, is now disintegrating. Islamís family system brings the
rights of the husband, wife, children, and relatives into a fine
equilibrium. It nourishes unselfish behavior, generosity, and love in the
framework of a well-organized family system. The peace and security
offered by a stable family unit is greatly valued, and it is seen as essential
for the spiritual growth of its members. A harmonious social order is
created by the existence of extended families and by treasuring children.
