Marriage in Islam

Marriage is the most beautiful act in Islam. Marriage is mentioned many times in the Quran, the last holy book of Allah which was revealed by the Holy Prophet Mohammad (ﷺ).

It's sunnah to marriage.


Don't involve yourself in Haraam Relationships, as it is forbidden in Islam. The sexual relationship and other ( unlawful) relationships between a girl and boy before marriage are Haraam. Islam does not allow us to be in a Haraam relationship.

Marriage In Islam

Allah says, "Do not marry idol worshipers."

Do not marry idolatresses unless they believe, believing women, and believing men is better than an idolatress, even if you like him/her.

  • Our religion Islam allows us to marry the one whom he/she loves, there is nothing bad in it.

  • There are so many things that are Haraam before marriage but they are not Haraam after marriage, so try to marry the one whom you love as early as you can

  • The two who love and marry each other, have completed half of their deen.

Hadith On Marriage

Our beloved Holy Prophet (ﷺ) had said,

" There is nothing like marriage, for two who love one another."

" Marriage is my precept and my practice, those who do not follow my practice are not of me."

" When a man has married, he has completed one-half of his religion."

Is It Haraam To Love Before Marriage?

No, of course not.

When a Muslim loves someone, he must love him/her for the sake of Allah Almighty. Love before marriage is not Haraam, but if you do sexual and bad acts then it is Haraam. Our religion Islam forbids it to do sexual acts with someone before marriage.

For Marriage,

Recite "Surah Yasin". As it is the heart of the Holy Quran because of its limitless blessings.

"Whoever recites Surah Yasin in the early part of the day, his needs will be fulfilled." (surah Yasin)

Things Haraam In Marriage

  • The first thing which is Haraam is intimacy through annul. ( sex from the back )

  • Secondly, intimacy in the menstrual cycle of women is also Haraam and strictly forbidden in Islam for Muslim husbands.

  • After the birth of a child when women suffer the same cycle for the month then intimacy is also Haraam.

( Please avoid these things, keep yourself away from these things. As it is strictly prohibited in Islam )

The wife has financial rights over her husband, which are the mahr (dowry), spending, and accommodation.

And she has non-financial rights, such as the fair division between co-wives, being treated in a decent and reasonable manner, and not being treated in a harmful way by her husband.

1. Financial rights

(a) The mahr (dowry). This is the money to which the wife is entitled from her husband when the marriage contract is completed or when the marriage is consummated. It is a right that the man is obliged to pay the woman. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (obligatory bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) with a good heart” (al-Nisaa’ 4:4)

The prescription of the mahr demonstrates the seriousness and importance of the marriage contract and is a token of respect and honor to the woman.

The mahr is not a condition or essential part of the marriage contract, according to the majority of fuqahaa’; rather it is one of the consequences of the contract. If the marriage contract is done without any mention of the mahr, it is still valid, according to the consensus of the majority, because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“There is no sin on you, if you divorce women while yet you have not touched (had sexual relation with) them, nor appointed unto them their Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage)” (al-Baqarah 2:236)

The fact that divorce is permitted before consummation of the marriage or before stipulating the mahr indicates that it is permissible not to stipulate the mahr in the marriage contract.

If the mahr is stipulated, it becomes obligatory upon the husband; if it is not stipulated, then he must give the mahr that is given to women of similar status to his wife.

(b) Spending. The scholars of Islam are agreed that it is obligatory for husbands to spend on their wives, on the condition that the wife makes herself available to her husband. If she refuses him or rebels, then she is not entitled to that spending.

The reason why it is obligatory to spend on her is that the woman is available only to her husband, because of the marriage contract, and she is not allowed to leave the marital home except with his permission. So he has to spend on her and provide for her, and this is in return for her making herself available to him for his pleasure.

What is meant by spending is providing what the wife needs of food and accommodation. She has the right to these things even if she is rich because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“but the father of the child shall bear the cost of the mother’s food and clothing on a reasonable basis” (al-Baqarah 2:233)

“Let the rich man spend according to his means; and the man whose resources are restricted, let him spend according to what Allaah has given him” (al-Talaaq 65:7)

The wife should treat her husband in a good manner because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) to what is reasonable” (al-Baqarah 2:228)

Ibn Katheer said, Qutaadah said:

You should command them to obey Allah, and forbid them to disobey Allah; you should be in charge of them in accordance with the command of Allah and instruct them to follow the commands of Allah, and help them to do so. If you see any act of disobedience towards Allah, then stop them from doing it and rebuke them for that.

Submitting herself to him. Once the conditions of the marriage contract have been fulfilled and it is valid, then the woman is obliged to submit herself to her husband and allow him to enjoy her (physically), because once the contract is completed, he is allowed in return to enjoy her, and the wife is entitled to the compensation which is the mahr.

Enjoy your life with your Spouses, as our beloved Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had advised them to treat your wife good, them with them in good manners. Love them, play with them, eat with them, sleep on her lap, do good things to express your love. It's Sunnah

Follow the sunnah and commands of Allah, the Most merciful. InshaAllah your life will become much more beautiful.
