The sanctity and status of marriage is great in Islam, and it is especially encouraged among the youth. he couple starts their journey together, each finding comfort in the other in straitened times, and each enjoying the other’s company in prosperous and easy times.

In the Quran, Allah The Almighty calls upon us to ponder on the beautiful and sacred relationship of marriage: {And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your [hearts]} [Quran, 30:21]

Marriage creates a powerful bond which, with mutual affection and sacrifice, establishes a strong Muslim family where offspring are provided with a suitably adherent and practising environment. Thus, the couple’s children will not only be born Muslims, but will live Islam in its true spirit and develop the character and behavior of true Muslims. A Muslim society rests upon the Muslim family, and when the family’s members are trained from childhood to acquire Islamic morals, compete with one another in doing good deeds and engage in productive activities, the Muslim society is strong indeed. Furthermore, it is not unreasonable to say that the Muslim family rests upon the righteous wife and mother, who are the pillar, cornerstone and foundation of the family. One of the greatest blessings Allah The Almighty can bestow upon a man is to give him a wife who is righteous and well grounded in Islamic teachings. Such a wife is a source of solace, good companionship and comfort to her husband, and Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, rightly said: “This world is just temporary conveniences, and the best comfort in this world is a righteous woman.” [Muslim]
