Importance of Marriage in Islam

on Thursday, September 12, 2013

Marriage is an important aspect in every person’s life. In whatever religion you hope to look, you will find that marriage is seen to be sacred and Islam is not different. Marriage is one of the most vital parts of anyone’s life, it is so important that in Islam; it is considered to be a part of Faith in the Religion itself.

The great prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM) has said: “A person who possesses the means to marry (i.e. he is able to work to support his wife and children) and does not marry, then he is not from amongst us (i.e. the believers).”

Marriage helps to take a person of the hectic lifestyle that he or she may have led up until now.  It helps you to settle down with the love of your life and start a proper life. Marriage also guides you towards inner peace and restrains you from sins like Fortification, Homosexuality and Masturbation. By restraining oneself from these sins, a person is able to keep his Faith and stay a proper Muslim. Any Child you make without marriage ends up being illegitimate and frowned upon. Marriage gives you the answer to these problems.

Not only has the great prophet Muhammad (SM) said that the importance and sacrileges of Marriage, but in the Holy Quran Allah Himself have said ““And marry those among you who are single (i.e. a man who has no wife and the woman who has no husband) and (also marry) the Saalihoon (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves). In case they are poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty.”, He also said: “And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He puts between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for people who reflect.” This shows that Allah Himself has created us in two pairs and given us the chance to find true love, protection and peace from our spouses.

One of the biggest misconceptions in Islam is that Sex is seen as a sin by Muslims, but that is not true. Sexual desire is Human Nature, Allah has made us this way, and He has also provided us the path to fulfill this carnal lust. It is actually highly encouraged that a husband and wife engage in sexual intercourse to get rid of this desire and find happiness within oneself.

Marriage is very important in Islam, it is not only a part of faith, but also your way out of many sins. It renews your faith in Allah and helps you to stay away from the clutches. It helps you practice self-discipline and make you responsible, but more importantly it lets you have a child of your own and the Love of Allah and his Messenger is sought in seeking to have Children.
