That is one of the big problems in our society today
all of which are huge problems in our society today
Commercialisation and over-sexualisation of modern life (which has been in the news recently) are at the heart of many problems in our society today. When lust for more money, fame and power dictates people’s lives they lose the meaning of love. They become so busy that they cannot spend quality time with their spouses, children, family members and friends. Physical interaction, and innocent quality time with nearer and dearer people become impossible. With increasingly sophisticated features on mobile phones, internet and television, we remain ever hooked, busy; machine-like. We do not have ‘time’, which according to Islam is ‘life’.

The balance of the Decalogue deals with man’s relationships with his fellowman. There is the promulgation of law governing family relationships, parent and child; the law that specifies periods of work and rest, the relationship of capital and labor; the principles that govern civic relationships and declare social order—the “thou shalt nots.” The relationship of these commandments to the domestic problems in our society today may well be in order.
Without question, the number one problem in our society today is thebreakdown of marriage and the family. God's Holy Institution of Marriagebetween a man and a woman for life is His perfect plan for a man and womanto become one and share this journey through life. A husband and wife havingchildren and raising them in the admonition of the Lord is God's plan forthe family. This plan was instituted in the Garden of Eden and has NEVERCHANGED throughout the generations. Regardless of how man has tried toredefine marriage, redefine what a family is, GOD'S DEFINITION HAS NEVER OREVER WILL CHANGE!!!The underlying drivers of crime represent the most difficult problems in our society today - stemming from risk factors within family, community and educational environments.
