Islam Online Guides Spouses Towards Marital Bliss: Arabic vs. English Counselling Perspectives on Marital Communication

‘Islam Online Guides Spouses towards Marital Bliss: Arabic Vs. English Counselling Perspectives on Marital Communication’ documents and discusses the case of www.islamonline.net, which was one of the most influential Islamic, and indeed religious websites worldwide for more than a decade. More specifically, Mona Abdel-Fadil explores what types of counselling perspectives and advice Islam Online employs when addressing marital communication problems. The focus is on the characteristics, recurring themes, and underpinning gender perspectives of the counselling. Moreover, the chapter examines how ‘Islam’ fits into the Islam Online counselling mix. Last and not least, this contribution discusses how advice provided on Islam Online Arabic and Islam Online English compare to one another, an exercise that provides some perhaps surprising results, contrary to previous scholarly assumptions that Arabic webpages would entail a more religiously conservative outlook.
