In Islam marriage being an obligatory act is so important that it is declared to be one-half of a single Muslim’s faith. We can also say that Marriage Half Deen of Muslims. It is narrated by Anas that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half.” Our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) also married and encouraged others to get married by saying: “A person who he is able to support a wife and children and does not marry then he is not from us.” Marriage has great importance in Islam, it emphasizes on not to delay in marriage as there is another Hadith of Prophet (SAW) related to marriage is: “Do not delay in three things;
- The offering of the compulsory prayer.
- The offering of the funeral prayer when the dead body is present.
- The marriage of a woman when her match is found”
There are some reasons due to which Islam so much emphasized on Marriage which we have listed below:
Marriage makes an incomplete human being a complete one, our Prophet Muhammad (SAW)says, “No house has been built in Islam more beloved in the sight of Allah than through marriage”
It is necessary for making a family (for children). Marriage is one of the most liked Sunnah in Islam as our beloved Prophet (SAW) married and also encouraged others. It provides tranquility, peace, and security. It is a bond of love not just only between two persons but between two families. It is a source to experience love and happiness. Besides this, we have so many verses in the Quran related to the importance of Marriage in Islam and in the sight of Almighty Allah. In one place Allah says in Quran: “O Humans revere your Guardian-Lord, Who created you from a single person created of like nature its mate, and from this scattered (like seeds) countless men and women. Reverence Allah through Whom you claim your mutual rights” (Quran 4:1). In this verse by stressing the equality of all humans men or women and making it the basis of marriage, Allah in His infinite wisdom has laid the ground rules for establishing peace, as well as the assigning of different roles to husband and wife as the functional strategy rather than a question of competence as humans. Allah has made partners of all human beings on this earth for making a family. We should trust Almighty Allah and have to act according to His teachings and the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW).
Prophet Mohammad (SAW) stated that: “Men and women are twin halves of each other” (Bukhari). This Hadith also emphasizes the fact that men and women are created from a single source. Furthermore, by using the analogy of twin half the Prophet has underlined the reciprocal nature and the interdependent nature of men and women’s relationship. Since the family is the foundation of Islamic society, and marriage is the only way to bring families into existence in Islam.
Marriage is an act pleasing Allah Almighty because it is in accordance with his commandments that husband and wife love each other and help each other to make efforts to continue the human race and raise their children to become true servants of Allah. (Reference- www.quranreading.com )
