Title : Muslim Marriage and status of women in Islam.
In the name of Allah who is most merciful and glorious.
Marriage is a sign of Allah
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourself mates that you may find tranquility in them; and Whatever you do is according to the will of Allah(s.w.t) and follows the path what our lovingly prophet(PUBH) told us about our deen(the full practice of religion) .
We get prosperity in our marriage when we do marriage according to Sunnah. A successful marriage is one which is a marriage according to Sunnah and following placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for people who give thought.” (Surah Rum, Ayat-21)
Muslims must have to take care of having the ideology of Taqwa[purify or piousness] while marrying to someone. Muslim marriage according to sunnah are blessed by Allah(s.w.t).
Allah did not like those who stays away from marriage as Allah made a partner for each and every of its creation. See this where Allah(s.w.t) mentioned that "and we created you in pairs"[Surah AN-NABA (THE TIDINGS 78:8)]
A person who thinks that he is the only working for the survival of his livelihood is wrong. It is the Allah(s.w.t) the almighty god who is the only responsible to give your livelihood.
Allah enlarges livelihood for whom He will, and straitened (it for whom He will)[surah AR-RA'D (THE THUNDER) 13:26] So don't ignore marriage just because of that how could you survive with your partner, it’s the only Allah who will give RIZK livelihood to you and your partner.
It is also mentioned in Quran al Kareem “And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.” (Al-Rum : 21)Marriage according to sunnah is necessary in Islam because nobody likes to do what Allah doesn’t like.
Islam is a great and first supporter of widow marriage as widow also have their feelings and physical and social requirements.
Respects of women in ISLAM:
In Islam there is no discrimination between man and woman as the almighty god i.e., Allah(s.w.t) promised to give them equal reward for their good deeds and equal punishment for their sins.
"And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women." [Quran 2:228]
In some context for men and women in Quran majeed Allah(s.w.t) mentions that duties of men and women are mostly similar what they do to be on the path of truth and have their feet fixed on the path of deen-ae-Islam(the full practice of religion islam) .
So from the above ayat's of Quran majeed we are having a truth fact that men and women are equal in eyes of the almighty god. Considering the fact that before the rise(arrival) of Islam the pagan Arabs used to bury their female children alive, make women dance naked in the vicinity of the mecca during their annual fairs, and treat women as mere chattels and objects of ***ual pleasure possessing no rights or position whatsoever, these teachings of the Noble Quran were revolutionary. Unlike other religions, which regarded women as being possessed of inherent sin and wickedness and men as being possessed of inherent virtue and nobility, Islam regards men and women as being of the same essence created from a single soul. The Quran declares:
"O mankind! Reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from a single person, created, of like nature, his mate, and from this pair scattered (like seeds) countless men and women. Reverence Allah, through whom you demand your mutual (rights), and reverence the wombs (that bore you); for Allah ever watches over you." [Noble Quran 4:1]
So all we wants to do that live according to the will of Allah(S.W.T) and acquire Taqwa[purify or piousness] in our life.
