Elements of Nikah

posted by Taalibah on 14th August 2013 - 1 comment
Allah Ta’ala has made nikah itself such that it increases love between two individuals. Ibn Abbas RA narrates that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam has said: “We have not seen anything that creates love between two individuals such as nikah.” (Ibn Majha) There are many ways of increasing love between a couple. Consider the following ten points to maintain a happy marriage and control the instinct of dispute. 1. Fear Allah. It was the noble practice of Nabi Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam to make the spouses aware of the fear of Allah before performing a nikah by reciting the verses (al-Nisa 14, al-Ahzab 69, Aali-Imraan 101) from the Qur’an. All the verses are common in the message of taqwa (fear of Allah). The spouses will be first committed to Allah before being committed to their partner. There can be no doubt in the success of a marriage governed by the fear of Allah.
