Being Single

Islam encourages Muslims to get married young because it encourages the birth of offspring and to increase the lineage of the Prophet (PBUH) called ‘ummah’. So Allah has asked us to get married after we reach puberty and not delay it for worldly reasons. Many of these worldly reasons include having a stable job, getting education, becoming more ‘mature’ and a few others. While it is good that one must have all the above before getting married, it is not absolutely essential. Therefore, we must change our attitudes and get married to gain the pleasure of Allah if we can afford it.

Staying in love in marriage

Staying in love in marriage

In Islam we all know that true and real love begins at marriage. Emotions in our heart which we name as love before a marriage contract are not really love, but are lust and we must stay away from them under all circumstances. We must remember that real love begins at marriage. Once a couple is married it is quite simple to fall in love. What is difficult is to stay in love and that is what Allah really tests when He asks us to enter this beautiful institution of marriage.
