Nowadays, getting married based only on love is not enough. Every married couple certainly wants to build a harmonious family. In order for a marriage to last, always being in advance in communicating and managing family finances is key.

What to Do Before and After Marriage?

After marriage, two individuals begin to live a domestic life together. However, personal wants still exist. This is one of the things that often causes miscommunication between husband and wife.

Therefore, even before marriage, there are things that need to be done to keep the marriage lasting. In terms of financial management, every couple who is getting married can communicate and agree with each other. Which financial goals must be met first?

"It would be good if each couple can sit down together to agree on the family's financial priorities, including considering children's education plans. Therefore, it is important to instill a simple lifestyle, a lifestyle that is not excessive or within our capabilities. This can be started by planning the use of money in an orderly manner and in accordance with sharia principles," said Ustadz Abdurrahman Zahier during Jago Syariah talkshow at the Halal Fair event in Yogyakarta in 2024.

Managing family finances according to Islamic teachings

According to Islamic law, managing finances well takes into account several factors. One of the most important things is for couples to get used to a simple lifestyle and avoid wasteful or consumptive behavior. Even after having children, it is worth continuing to live a simple life.

It is also important to minimize debt and prepare emergency funds so you and your family can have peace of mind and don't have to borrow money from anyone when dealing with something unexpected.

Apart from that, in managing finances, couples can set financial goals in accordance with Islamic teachings (such as saving for Hajj first before saving for a holiday abroad or other goals that are more worldly in nature - reference: OJK). Don't forget to allocate part of your family income to help others in need in the form of zakat and sadaqah.

Always in Advance in Managing Finances According to Sharia to Enjoy a More Blissful Family Life

Managing and planning finances according to each person's ways and beliefs can make life more blissful. Muslim families, in this case, can manage their finances according to Islamic teachings by utilizing sharia financial products that are interest-free and use akad.

Tips for Family Financial Planning with Jago Syariah

Managing family finances according to sharia practically and easily can be started with Jago Syariah.

1. Budgeting according to sharia using the Jago Syariah Pockets

By using the Jago Syariah Pockets feature (you can create multiple Pockets), husband and wife can separate their financial needs into multiple accounts. Each Pocket created has a different account number.

So in a household, for example, you and your spouse want to build an emergency fund, prepare child's education savings and Umrah savings and allocate funds for monthly shopping and paying bills, For all these needs you can create a lot of Pockets to accommodate.

Next, allocate a budget for each Pocket. Budgeting can be done manually or automatically with the Auto-Budgeting feature.

The Jago Syariah Pockets use Wadiah and Mudharabah akad. You can create the type of Pocket you need directly from the Jago application, including the Sharia Deposit Pocket.

Especially for the Spending Pockets, this feature can be linked to a Jago Syariah debit card (Visa or GPN) for convenient non-cash transactions. Set your own daily transaction limits to ensure spending is within the budget and to prevent overspending.
