Marriage in the Quran: Its Significance and Purposes

According to Islamic teachings, marriage is not just a social contract but a spiritual bond. Allah (SWT) has linked the concept of human social well-being and spiritual felicity to marriage. In the Holy Quran, marriage is presented as an essential component of one’s faith and conscious living. The Holy Quran describes several benefits of marriage, most notably:

  • Development of character:
  • Spiritual and moral guidance:
  • Physical intimacy:
  • Raising children:
  • Creating relationships based on compassion and support.

The Role of Women in Marriage and Relationships as Per Quranic Verses

In the Islamic perception, women and men are equal, and their mutual roles and responsibilities are interdependent. Women are not a secondary partner but an equal partner in a marriage who have significant roles and rights granted to them in the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran provides numerous verses that underscore this reality. Some of these are:

  • The Noble Quran(30:21) famously states: “And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that ye may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Lo! Herein indeed are signs for a people that reflect.”
  • The Noble Quran (4:124) says: “Men shall take full care of women with the bounteous (wealth) that Allah may give them more (inheritance), a duty imposed by Allah upon those who ascribe (themselves) to religion; and (women’s) men also, a duty imposed by Allah upon those who ascribe (themselves) to religion; and (their) women also, a duty enjoined by Allah, that ye may stay (at home).”
  • The Noble Quran (17:31) adds: “And one of them says: ‘Dad, take me back to the days when I was still a little girl and used to sit in my parents’ lap!'”
  • The Noble Quran (2:177) declares: “And if ye fear that ye cannot act equitably (towards all wives), then marry women suitable to your purse: marry women too, of whose is the fruit (of marriage), two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye cannot’s do justice (between them), then marry only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be nearest to prevent ye from doing injustice.”

Portrayal of Marriage in Islamic Tradition: Principles and Values

Although Islam recognizes the importance of the spiritual and material facets of marital life, it regards love, respect, and compassion between spouses as the core foundations of a successful and harmonious marriage. These pillars represent integral components that build stable and thriving relationships. Furthermore, the Quranic recognizes both physical and emotional intimacy as a crucial aspect of the matrimonial relationship. Consequently, Muslim couples’ intimate moments are advanced from mere procreation but encouraged in a broader framework of companionship and affection.

Challenges and Solutions to Common Marital Problems Based on Quranic Inspirations

Although marriage is presented as a beautiful and cherished relationship in Islamic traditions, it is not an obstacle-free relationship. Marital issues can arise in any union, which deteriorates its divine essence. The Quran acknowledges a myriad of challenges in the marital life that couples face, including jealousy, communication gaps, lack of intimacy, and disillusionment. Although these problems can be exceptionally complex to resolve, the Quran provides some applicable recommendations to help couples overcome these issues.

  • The Noble Quran (4:34-35) suggests: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
  • The Noble Quran (4:128) prompts: “Be they women or children, you have a duty to feed them (and clothe them), and to act kindly to the downcast, and to the (fit) spending ones whose means have been restricted. And as to those with whom ye have made a compromise, then there is nothings wrong in making things easy between them in a just way;”
  • The Noble Quran (3:159) commands: “It is He Who brought yourselves together (for marriage) and He created, between your (wedded) wives, love and tenderness. In that, behold, there are signals for a people who reflect;”

Quranic Message about Asking Divorce: Merits and Limitations

Divorce is one of the most dreadful obstacles to the stability of marriage in both Islamic and Western cultures. Although divorce is not preferred in marriage, sometimes it becomes inevitable. The Quran acknowledges that situations where divorce may be justified or required can represent ultimatums concerning matters such as infertility in women, adultery, and violence. When a divorce is required, the Quran prescribes specific procedures that must be followed, and specific rules for males and women.
