Marriage Guidance Course (Kursus Bimbingan Rumahtangga) was first initiated in Singapore in the year 1968 by the late Ustaz Haji Abu Bakar Hashim, the founder of APKIM Resources, who was then working in the Registry of Muslim Marriages. Since then, Muslim couples who are about to get married would attend the course before they solemnize their wedding. The syllabus of the course had been reviewed over time to ensure it remains relevant and current to the needs of the couples.
