Allah has said about the relationship between a Muslim man and a Muslim woman in the Holy Quran that “They are garments for you and you are garments for them”. The meaning of this ayah of the Quran is very deep and we as Muslims should try and understand what Allah is saying to us. The literal meaning of garments is clothes and covering, clothes that protect us and cover our bodies
For Muslims getting married is a great Sunnah and highly encouraged in Islam because it brings together two amazing individuals to live together as one and share in life’s happiness and sorrows. It allows them to build a family and raise it and it allows them to be truly garments of each other. However, in order to do that the relationship of marriage should be completely transparent with no place for secrets within the spouses.
Human relationships are all very fragile and the one of marriage is even more so no matter how beautiful it is. A little wrong move can put a strain on your marriage and you will find it difficult to recover from it. However, that stage will not come if you tread carefully in your relationship.
In Islam displaying love for your spouse within the confines of haya is acceptable and even encouraged. We as Muslims should show that we love our spouses in the confines of our own house as well as in public. Doing so increases the love between a couple as they strive to go ahead with their relationship.
In Islam a Muslim man and woman are asked by Allah to live together in love, patience and harmony. It is one of the most important principles of the relationship and one that ensures your marriage is intact. However, another one of the most loved acts for Muslim men and Muslim women is to pray for their spouses.
A Muslim man and a woman in marriage are not only required by Allah to have a peaceful and loving marriage for the sake of themselves but are also required to do so for the sake of their children. Allah has made marriage one of the most loved relationships because from this relationship stem other relationships. Infact they are the crux of all the relationships that Muslims abide by
We’re all addicted to social media and love flaunting our relationships on it, be it with parents, siblings, friends or even our spouses. Showing affection in public is not wrong and infact it is a Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) but one must show caution in publicly praising and complimenting spouses because we all know that the evil eye is real. We must pray to Allah to save all our relationships from the evil eyes and bring love and peace in our hearts for our spouses.
