What Does Islam Say about Marriage?

On TheWayToDestiny.Com

Marriage and the family are central in the Islamic system of life. Islam recognizes the religious virtue, the social necessity, and the moral advantages of marriage. There are many sayings by Prophet Muhammad (Peace andBlessings be upon him) which go as far as to state that when a Muslim marries, he has thereby perfected half his faith. As marriage is a religious duty, moral safeguard, and social commitment, it must be fulfilled. But like all other duties in Islam, it is enjoined only upon those who are capable of meeting the responsibilities involved. Islam views marriage as a strong bond and a challenging commitment. It is a commitment to life itself, to society, and to the dignified and meaningful survival of the human race. It is a commitment that married partners make to one another as well as to Allâh. It is the kind of commitment in which they find mutual fulfillment and self-realization, love and peace, compassion and serenity, as well as comfort and hope. Even at the most trying times of married life, and in the midst of legal disputes and litigation, the Qurân reminds of God’s law to the partners; it commands them to be kind to one another, truly charitable toward one another, and above all to be dutiful to God. Islam regards marriage to be the normal, natural course for women just as it is for men.

"And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell intranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. " [The Qurân Ch: 30 Al-Rum, V: 21]

Eric woke with the sound of a siren in his head. He could almost hear the blue-red splashes of light, his eyes still bleary. The sirens were from the streets and Eric walked slowly to his window. People were screaming and running east, trampling one another, running over cars, pushing children down. A dog was thrown up in the air and it landed in front of a speeding two-wheeler. The rider swerved and crashed into the bakery below Eric’s apartment. That’s when the electricity went. Eric kept his eye on the sun, as it turned an ugly shade of purple.
