What Does Quran Say About Marriage

Marriage is half deen in every Muslim’s life. To be better spouses and better Muslims. Islam encourages us to better understand feelings, love, needs and wants, marital equality, and gender roles for a successful marriage

Let us refer to few verses from Holy Quran-the definite authoritative word of Allah – to understand the real value of marriage. Let's appreciate both the beauty of marriage and the blessings of having a spouse by understanding what Allah asks of us when it comes to our marriage.

Let's look below at few verses from Quran on marriage and Inshallah ask our scholars about the true meaning of these verses, hope this helps to build a strong foundation for a successful marriage

  • And one of His signs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves so that you may find comfort in them. And He has placed between you compassion and mercy. Surely in this are signs for people who reflect.” (Quran, 30:21)
  • It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her.” (Quran, 7:189)
  • “Your spouses are a garment for you as you are for them.” (Quran, 2:187)
  • “Men are the caretakers of women, as men have been provisioned by Allah over women and tasked with supporting them financially. And righteous women are devoutly obedient and, when alone, protective of what Allah has entrusted them with.” (Quran, 4:34)
  • “O humanity! Be mindful of your Lord Who created you from a single soul, and from it He created its mate, and through both He spread countless men and women. And be mindful of Allah — in Whose Name you appeal to one another — and honour family ties. Surely Allah is ever Watchful over you.” (Quran, 4:1)
