“And Allah has made for you Mates (and Companions of your own nature).” (Surah Al Nahl 16:72)
Islam and Marriage:
Islam is a religion that has not only told us to worship Allah but given a whole code of life. We Muslims not only been told how to live a life but also we have been exemplified through the life of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Holy Prophet ﷺ lived a very simple life and when He ﷺ was 25 years old He ﷺ married Hazrat Khadeeja (R.A) and showed us that marriage is a very important part of Muslim life.
Process of Marriage:
Marriage in Islam is a contract between two persons in the presence of witnesses. When someone gets married he gets not only a wife but also a partner who will be with him in his good and bad times. The relation between husband and wife prohibits both of them from going on any wrong side.
“And those who guard their chastity, Except with their wives and whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed. But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors.” (70:29-31)
“Allah created male and female from a single soul in order that man might live with her in serenity.” (Quran, 7:189)
Positive Signs of Marriage:
Through marriage, an incomplete single human being is completed. He will have a person to share his sorrows, sufferings and who will have taken his responsibilities to her. Wedding in Islam is important because Islam has guarded us towards the right path, towards the path of success, and towards the path which will make our judgment day easier for us.
Marriage overcomes many problems which cause unbalance in society. These are homosexuality, rape, and many others like these. So, marriage is always encouraged in Islam because it safeguards one’s faith. It provides the basics of family life and it is necessary for the upbringing of children in society. Allah encourages His slaves for marriage.
