What does Islam say about Marriage?

Updated on January 26, 2011

Islam and Marriage

Getting married is essential for a Muslim man or woman. Marriage is so important in the Islamic religion that it is declared to be one half of a Muslims faith as per the Hadith below:

"When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half." (Bayhaqi)

As a Muslim one should live in accordance with the Islamic Jurisprudence in the way shown by the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The Prophet himself married and also encouraged others to do so. It has been reported that The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon) him said,

“Nikah (marriage) is my Sunnah. He who shuns my Sunnah is not of me.” (Muslim)

In another narration the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has said,

`O young people! Whoever among you can support a wife should marry, for that is more modest for the gaze and safer for your private parts.' (Bukhari & Muslim)

From this we can see that Muslims have to get married if they have the means to do so, it shouldn't be delayed as it will protect you from sinful and shameful deeds.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has stated, "After today, under no circumstances, should a man go to see a woman whose husband is absent, unless there is another man with him, or another two men." (Ahmad and Muslim)

In the Quran Allah has stated:

And wed the single among you’.(C24 : V32)

One can see from the above verse that the Creator himself has ordered us to marry.

In this day an age we can see so many problems being caused in our societies from single mothers or children without both parents it has been reported by the telegraph in the UK that "Young people whose mother and father split up are also three times as likely to become aggressive or badly behaved, according to the comprehensive survey carried out by the Office for National Statistics.". From this we can see straight away one of the reasons why marriage is so important for everyone. There are so many other benefits of marriage that I will research and write about afterwards.
