Marriage as Allah’s Favors

Qur’anic verses:

The legal basis for marriage, prior to scholarly consensus and the Sunnah is such Qur’anic verses as,

({[And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.)}

[Al-Rum: 21]

{It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell[2] with her (in love).}

[AI-A`raf: 189]”When a man gets married, he gets one half of the religion. Thus, he should tear Allah in the other half.”[4]

(Reported by Al-Baihaqi)

Abdullah Ibn ‘Amr Ibn al-‘As reports the Prophet (pbuh) to have said, “The worldly life is an enjoyment, the best enjoyment of which is a righteous woman.”

[Narrated by Muslim and An-Nisa’i]

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reports the Prophet (pbuh) to have said, “There are three people whom Allah will surely help: a warrior in the cause of Allah, a slave who wants to free himself by a payable contract and whoever seeks chastity by marriage.”[5]

[Narrated by At- Tirmidhi] Chastity

Qur’anic verses:

{Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace.}

[Al-Nur: 33]

Prophetic Hadiths:

‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) reports the Prophet (pbuh) to have said, “O you young people! Whoever can afford marriage should marry,[6] for that will help him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse, etc.). Whoever is not able to marry is recommended to fast, as fasting diminishes (his) sexual power”.

[Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Women Are on the Top of Worldly Enjoyment

Qur’anic verses:

{And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love[7] and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.)}

[Al-Rum: 21]
Prophetic Hadiths

“What I like (most) of your world is three things: women, perfume and prayer, which is the dearest thing to my eye.”

[Reported by Al-Nasa’i and Ahmad]

Through marriage a Muslim can find his soul mate. Spouses complete each other. Therefore, it is recommended for those who want to marry to choose their partners very well. Then, they would rather perform two rak’ats and say the following supplication:

“O Allah, I ask You, of Your knowledge, for guidance and of Your power, for strength; and I ask You Your great generosity. Certainly You are Powerful and I am not, and You are the Knower of the unknown. O Allah, if You know this matter to be good for my religion, my worldly life, my life in the next world then decree it for me and make it easy, and bless me in it. And if You know this matter to be detrimental to my religion, my worldly life, my life in the next world, then divert it from me, and turn me away from it, and decree for me that which is good, wherever it may be. And then make me pleased with it.
