Marriage is the source of happiness and stability for man. God Almighty created women to be the sisters of men. A man cannot live without a woman, and a woman cannot live without a man. The Almighty said: (And God has made for you in your homes a residence) [Surat An-Nahl: 80]. ], and the meaning of the noble verse is that true stability and tranquility can only be achieved by a married life based on love and affection.

The goals for which God has legislated marriage

To immunize the Muslim person

Marriage in Islam is based on fulfilling the desire of man in a way that pleases God Almighty, far from indecency, immorality, adultery and incest. This is why the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, explained to the youth community its importance, by saying: (O young people who can of you, let him marry, for it lowers the sight and protects the farj (private part)) [Sahih].

Achieving human succession on earth

God Almighty created Adam and then made Adam’s rib from his rib so that he would have offspring, so he would establish the succession of the land and its construction, and this can only be achieved through marriage, as how can the reproduction and the Muslim offspring that will achieve worship to God Almighty without the existence of an Islamic link based on marriage between man and woman.

Obedience to God Almighty and His Messenger

God Almighty has legislated marriage so that obedience to Him and His Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, is fulfilled, for He, Glorified and Exalted be He, said: (Then marry whatever women please you, two, three and four , for the Messenger of God is three.) He, peace and blessings of God be upon him, has commanded the girl to be satisfied with the owner of character and religion, otherwise she is a sinner, because he, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: (If someone whose religion and morals you are pleased with comes to you, then marry him, unless you do, there will be trials and corruption on earth) [Hassan].

Marriage is a recommended command

The meaning of that is that it is a command recommended for the actions of the honorable messengers and prophets, and until there are preachers from the descendants of the messengers and the righteous prophets who carry the call and the message. And get married, for I will multiply nations by you) [Sahih].

Satisfying instincts

In marriage only, a believer is rewarded when satisfying his instincts. If marriage had not been for immorality, adultery and immorality would have spread, and immorality would prevail, and vice would prevail over society. May God’s peace and blessings be upon him said to his companions: “And in having intercourse [with your spouses], there is a reward.”, and one of them said: “O Messenger of God, does one of us have his desire and be rewarded for it?” He said, “Yes. If one puts his lust in a forbidden place, will he have committed a sin? [Similarly, if he puts it in a permissible place, he’ll have made a good action.]”
