Islam, which is different from other religions is a high supporter of marriage. Singleness has no place in Islam like in Christianity the concept of nuns. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said
“Marriage is my tradition who so ever keeps away there from is not from among me”. [Ibn-e-Majah]
Islamic Marriage is the one and only way from which one can fulfill his/her sexual desires. So one does not become a victim to his/her needs. Family is an important part of our society which is established through Islamic Marriage. Moreover, Islamic marriage is simply an authentic or halal way to treat the closeness between a male and a female. Islam requests us to control our desires so that we cannot become like animals.
The association between boy and girl brings love, harmony, trust, and compassion is the Islamic Marriage. The Quran explained this:
“Among His signs is [the fact] that He has created spouses for you among yourselves so that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has planted love and mercy between you; in that are signs for people who reflect.”[Quran 20:30]
Purpose of Islamic Marriage:
“zawj” word is in the Quran which means pair. In general, it usually refers to marriage. Because the common determination of Islamic marriage is that the couple can provide such company to each other so that they produce love, live in harmony and peace to the instructions of Allah.

State of affairs for marrying:
For a valid marriage, certain conditions must be met.
Consent of both parties:
One of the conditions of a valid marriage is the agreement of the couple. The ceremony of the Islamic marriage (nikah) is performed by a lawful Islamic authority. The procedure of the religious ceremony itself is simple. Once the marriage (nikah) forms are filled out, and the nikah is publicly announced and witnessed, the contract is legal.

Mehr is the gift that is given by the husband to his wife at marriage. It can be anything in any amount, as agreed by the bride and groom. Allah says about Mehr in the Quran:
And give the women (on marriage) their Mehr as a free gift. [Quran 4:4]
Get married to whom?
We can see that Allah also gives us choice for choosing our partner. The Quran says:
“Marry the women of your choice.” [Quran 4:3]
As Allah said in the Quran:
“Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure, and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity.” (Qur’an 24:26)
It does not mean that one should ignore physical appearance and accept the one that does not attract his/her. It is the one’s right to select that person to marry which attracts his/her and which is selected by their heart. Appearance should be considered in any manner. One should select that person who is good-looking to his/her in all characteristics.
