Garments of Love And Mercy


Marriage Is One of Allah’s Laws 

Allah created our world and the laws that govern it. Among Allaah’s laws is that that we need food to survive, air to breathe, rain for vegetation, and so on. One of Allaah’s important laws is that things are created in pairs, and from these pairs, reproduction occurs.

Allaah says: 

“We have created all things in pairs, that perhaps you may remember.” 

This applies to human beings who are made of male – female pairs as well. Humankind started with our father, Aadam, and our mother, Hawwa’ (Eve).

“O people! Revere your Lord who has created you from a single soul, created from it its mate, and dispersed from both of them many men and women.”2 

Islaam Urges The Muslims To Marry 


The word commonly used in Islaamic texts for marriage is nikaah. In the original Arabic language, it means “intercourse”. But it was then applied to the marriage agreement because it is a means to intercourse.” 


Allaah (18) commands the believers to marry and help those under their charge to marry as well. He says: 

“Marry the unmarried among you and the righteous of your male and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allaah will enrich them from His favors. 

Allaah is Bountiful and Knowing.94 

Also, Allaah’s Messenger (the commanded the young people to marry, and advised those of them who could not afford it to fast as a means of controlling 

reported, “We were with the Prophet their sexual desire. Ibn Masood ) 

while we were young and had no wealth whatsoever. So Allaah’s Messenger ( said: 

يا معشر الشباب، من استطاع منكم الباءة فليتزوج، فإنه أغض للبصر وأحصن للفرج، ومن لم يستطع فعليه بالصوم، فإنه له وجاء 

“Young men, those among you who can afford marriage should do so, for it helps lower the gaze and guard the private parts (from zina). And those who cannot afford it should fast, for fasting is a repression (of desire) for him.” 


A strange phenomenon has recently developed among Muslims, without being confined to one country or nationality – a phenomenon whose consequences can prove to be most devastating to the Muslim community.

This phenomenon is the alarming number of unmarried Muslim men and women. 

On an individual level, it may appear that bachelorship poses a very insignificant threat to the Islaamic world.

However, in Islaam, unlike other religions, matters are weighed in light of their benefits or harms to the community as a whole. So, what is the effect of single unmarried men and women on ille community?

To find the answer to this question, all one has to do is look at the non-Muslim communities.

Every day we are confronted by the perversion and sinful practices that the non-Muslims find acceptable in their societies. This occurs because of their unnatural decision to abstain from marriage. 

Marriage Is A Practice Of The Prophet 

The Prophet Muhammad () indicated that marriage is part of his Sunnah, and that whoever neglects it is not of his true followers. Even though he derived the greatest pleasure and highest satisfaction from the prayer, Allaah’s Messenger ( expressed that he still had the desire for worldly pleasures such as women and perfume.

This is only natural for a human messenger. Anas (it is reported that Allaah’s Messenger (t) said: 

«بب إلي من دنياكم النساء والطيب، وجعلت قرة عيني في الصلاة .» 

“Of your worldly life, I have been made to desire women and perfume, But the satisfaction of my eye has been made in the salaah.”0 

Saheeh Bukhaari, Volume 7, Book 67, Hadeeth Number 5,066, p. 21; Saheeh Muslim, Volume 4, Book 16, Hadeeth Number 3,398, p. 15; Jaami’at – Tirmithee, Volume 2, Book 9, Hadeeth Number 1,081, p. 452 – 453; Sunan Aboo Daawood, Volume 2, Book 12, Hadeeth Number 2,046, p. 499; Sunan an – Nasaa’i, Volume 4, Book 26, Hadeeth Number 3,211, p. 88 – 89; Sunan ibn Maajah, Volume 3, Book 9, Hadeeth Number 1,845, p. 57 – 58. 

Aa’ishah (he) reported that Allaah’s Messenger () said: 

الئکاح سنتي، فمن لم يعمل بسنتي فليس مني. وتزوجوا فإني مكاثر بكم الأمم يوم القيامة. ومن كان ذا طول فلینکح، ومن لم يجد فعليه بالصوم، فإن الصوم له وجاء 

“Marriage is a sunnah (way) of mine; and whoever does not follow my Sunnah is not of my followers. Marry because I will display your outnumbering the other nations on Resurrection Day. Whoever has wealth should marry, and whoever does not should fast, because fasting is a restraint for him.” 


Some of the followers of the earlier prophets tried monasticism as a self discipline that could possibly bring them closer to Allaah.

However, they were not able to fulfill it as well as they had hoped. The reason is simply that it contradicts human nature, and that is why it is not permitted in Islaam. 

‘Aa’ishah (enreported that Khuwaylah, daughter of Hakim Bin Umayyah Bin Harithah Bin al – Awqas as – Sulami (from the tribe of Sulam) visited her.

 Khuwaylah was married to “Uthmaan Bin Maz’oon. Allaah’s Messenger saw her and noticed her messy appearance; so he asked ‘Aa’ishah, “O’Aa’ishah! What makes Khuwaylah appear so messy?” “Aa’ishah (het ) replied, “O Allaah’s Messenger! This woman’s husband fasts during the day and prays during the night.

So it is as if she does not have a husband, and thus she neglected her appearance.” Allaah’s Messenger (t) then summoned “Uthmaan Bin Maz’oon and said to him, “O ‘Uthmaan! Are you doing that because you dislike m

ah?” He replied, “By Allaah, no, O Allaah’s Messenger! Rather, my whole interest is to follow your Sunnah.” Allaah’s Messenger (t) then said: 

فإني أنام وأصلي، وأصوم وأفطر، وأنكح النساء. فأتق الله یا عثمان، فإن لأهلك عليك حقا، وإن لضيفك عليك حقا، وإن لنفسك عليك حقا. فم وأفطر، وصل ونم. » 

“Verily, I sleep and pray, fast and break fast, and marry women. Thus fear and revere Allaah O ‘Uthmaan, because your family has a right upon you, your guests have a right upon you, and your self (body) has a right upon you. So, fast and break fast, and pray and sleep.” 

In another report by “Aa’ishah (letnis), Allaah’s Messenger (**) said to him: 

یا عثمان، إن الرهبانية لم تكتب علينا، أفما لك في أسوة؟ فوالله إني أخشاكم لله، وأحفظكم لحدوده.»| 

“O‘Uthmaan! Monasticism bas not been enjoined upon us. Do you not have an example in me? By Allaah, verily I fear Allaah and safeguard His boundaries more than any of you.”
