Happily Ever After ( Financial Planning for Couples )

[Event has ended]
Sat, 16 March 2019, 2.30pm to 6.30pm ( Both days ) | English
ISGN Ventures Office

Marriage is a union of souls, in the deepest sense that Allah (God) joins two souls together so that they may enjoy tranquility and stability in a marital home filled with sincere love and compassionate mercy

Allah says in Quran:
“Among His Signs Is That He Created Companion ( Mate, Spouse) For You From Among Yourself, So That You May Find Tranquility With Them, And (He) Set Love And Mercy Between You. Surely In This Are Signs For People Who Give Thought” Surah Ar-Rum, 21 (Quran 30:21).

Now there is a saying that loves cures everything however for those who are married for years knows that this phrase is not entirely true. There is hard work involved in a marriage and there is planning too. One needs to improve themselves in many areas such as communication, family planning and more.

In this upcoming course, ‘Happily Ever After' is design to guide couples to plan their family finances to achieve “Barakah” in their lifetime.

What do we mean by “Barakah”?

It is difficult to explain the meaning of Barakah in English. If you google it, you can find that it mentions about divine blessings but there is more to it. To achieve this, there is plenty to do beside your own Ibadah like solat 5 times a day, fasting and doing charity. Yes there is more to it.

Earning an income and spending money can be an ibadah if we do it correctly and in a lawful (halal) way. And if done right, the money you earn can also grow. This is barakah.
Now, let's get to reality.
All of us have desires and dreams.

We want to have:
i) the most fanciful wedding like the artists in Malaysia
ii) we want to have a big house like those you see in MTV Cribs
iii) we want a car big enough to fit your family
iv) we want many children
v) we want to go for holidays 4 times a year
vi) and many more right.

Our desires for the world sometime gets to our head. They overwhelm us and the problem with us is that we want things fast and we want it “Now!”
So the problems arises when couples

I) start to loan money from banks or use their credit cards over their limits to buy this “Now”.
ii) could not foresee the potential payments to be made such as children schools expenses, income taxes, house renovations.
iii) do not take the steps when either one of the partner is out of job, retrenched, fired and cannot find one immediately.
iv) faces health issues in the family. Hospital bills goes beyond one's means.

So do you agree that to live Happily Ever After, you need to plan your family finances well?

Now, as a couple.
You will go through different phases in marriage.

1. Among the biggest hurdle is your own wedding itself.
2. Purchasing a house or car in Singapore.
3. Expecting your first child.
4. Having Expenses when you have 3 people or more.
5. Children's education ( University fees )
6. Retirement

Family planning is not a fixed plan. Along the way there will be surprises such as expecting a child so there are plenty of adjustments to be made every year.

So what this course will help you is to strategically get you and your partner to work together to get to the best outcome as possible and at the same time aiming to achieve “Barakah” in the family.

Our Trainer
Mr Zaid Masagos.
He has been around the financial industry for over 18 years and he has switched from main stream to Islamic financial planning since 2013.

His achievements
Planning for the rich is very simple he said because they already have existing money to work with however the challenge is with those of middle and lower income. He has helped to strategise for many couples to purchase a house and helped them achieve their goals. It's not impossible he said but it requires one to make sacrifices and patience. Especially in Singapore, this will never happen overnight. It requires the couple to be discipline in their savings and spending over a period of time and when the time is right, they will put their resources in the right places where it will benefit them.
