The Strongest of Bonds

tree-sunlight_smallIn Islaam, marriage is a blessed contract between a man and a woman, in which each becomes permitted to the other, and they begin the long journey of life in a spirit of love, co-operation, harmony and tolerance, where each feels at ease with the other, and finds tranquillity, contentment and comfort in the company of the other.

The Qur’aan has described this relationship between men and women, which brings about love, harmony, trust and compassion, in the most moving and eloquent terms, {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].} (Qur’aan 30:21.)

This is the strongest of bonds, in which Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa) unites the two Muslim partners, who come together on the basis of love, understanding, co-operation and mutual advice. Who establish a Muslim family in which children will live and grow up, and they will develop the good character and behaviour taught by Islaam.

The Muslim family is the strongest component of a Muslim society when its members are productive and constructive, helping and encouraging one another to be good and righteous, and competing with one another in good works.

The righteous woman is the pillar, cornerstone and foundation of the Muslim family. She is seen as the greatest joy in a man’s life, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “This world is just temporary conveniences, and the best comfort in this world is a righteous woman.” (Sahih Muslim 10/56)

A righteous woman is the greatest blessing that Allah (subhaanahu wa ‘ta’aalaa) can give to a man, for with her he can find comfort and rest after the exhausting struggle of earning a living.

With his wife, he can find incomparable tranquillity and pleasure.
