Abstract

The family is a social institution that is able to protect its members by adopting certain measures in creating a harmonious (sakinah) family according to Islam in order to attain happiness. However, due to the weakness in understanding the concept of a harmonious family, and in practicing the measures of its creation, has caused the family institution to face problems in its everyday life. This study aims to present the measures in creating a harmonious family according to Islam. The design of this study involves qualitative and field study. Data collection is made using the questionnaire instrument distributed to 177 respondents who participated in Bicara Sakinah (Talk on Harmony/Harmonious Family), organized by the Malaysian Consultative Council of Muslim Women (MPWIM), Malaysian Islamic Da'wah Foundation (YADIM) in Perak. The data are analyzed descriptively using the SPSS computer software. The findings show that the respondents practise or adopt measures in creating a harmonious family, such as by obeying the commands of Allah SWT (174), by supplicating to Allah, by guiding the family members in performing their roles well (172), by demonstrating good behaviour to be emulated by others (170), and by looking for halal (lawful) sustenance (175). The above findings show that the creation of a harmonious family according to Islam can be carried out by the respondents. However, some of the measures have received too little attention, and therefore needs to be acted upon. Family members are urged to join talks or functions related to Islamic family matters more frequently so that the objective of a harmonious family according to Islam is achieved and the measures towards the creation of a harmonious family can be further strengthened.
