The object of Marriage

PDFPrintE-mail

One of the primary objects of nikah (marriage) as explained by Allah Ta’ala in the Quraan Majeed is that we may find sukoon (peace of mind and contentment of the heart) in our partner. The object is not that we get a very wealthy or a highly qualified husband. In the present times unfortunately we choose a husband on the basis of our worldly pleasures and desires.

No doubt after such a marriage we do enjoy temporary fun and pleasure, but we are definitely deprived of a pious deeni life, peace, contentment and eternal happiness. If the foundation of a marriage is Islam and piety, then only will the couple be a means of tranquility to each other. If there is no deen in a marriage, then that marriage will be full of stress, restlessness and sadness. Tea without sugar has no sweetness; marriage without Islam has no real happiness.
