Marriage 4

Tonight I was lucky enough to attend the Nikah of someone at the local Masjid. I had no idea who they were, but I just sat for the Nikah(not for the sinni afterwards, stop looking at me like that!).


I witnessed this marriage, and I wanted to share with you something. I just happened to look at the boy during the Nikah, and he was beaming from ear to ear. It was, without a doubt, the happiest day of his life.


There is no greater institute, than the institute of Nikah. You could just see the pure happiness on his face, the jubilation. But why? Why do we not experience this as we walk the aisles with our beloveds in Gateway? As we tip-toe across the silent street to secretly meet in an old rusty car? Though we might find a bit of pleasure, in those few minutes, without a doubt we will feel guilty thereafter. Even the weakest amongst us, at the end of the day will feel a bit bad about it, as we are inevitably sinning.


This is the power of doing something according to Shariah. Suddenly everything that never made sense, makes complete sense when you follow the Shariah. It was such a blessing to see this happy boy, walking away to go and whisk his new bride up.


This is what we need to do, if we are in some sort of relationship then we should approach the other person. Be sincere, tell them that listen I really need to end this relationship because first is my Allah. If you like, we can make Nikah, but if not then let us just take a break and if Allah wills we will come together.


The other party will respond in the positive or the negative. If they turn around and make excuses, then think about- your so called 'love' is the greatest force on earth, then why is he or she putting other things in front? Let's face the facts, there is no justification to continue such a relationship, be it that he is studying or he needs to be stable on his feet. The first and foremost relationship that we need to consider is that between ourselves and Allah.


The other scenario might be that you never actually dated anybody(Alhamdulillah) and you really do not have anybody. Now if I told you you had a perfect body, with no illness or bad physique, would you suddenly go and chop your arm off? This is what we are doing when we try and find a nice partner for ourselves.


Forget what people say, that the 'days of finding someone the Islamic way are over'. Astaghfirullah, the days of Islam are never over. I can give you countless examples of marriages working out fine when done the Halaal way, and continuing in that manner thereafter.


Yes, I fully agree it is an awkward conversation to have with your parents. But do it, go to them and ask them to find you a suitable match. Because without this, we are letting Shaitaan play our matchmaker.


Whatever person above you may be, you can follow the route our Islam ordains. You can also be that boy or girl with the huge smile on your face. You can know full well that you have pleased your parents, our Nabi Sallalahualayiwasalam and our Allah. You can enter into that Nikah with that blessing. One thing is when Shah Rukh Khan sends you a tweet congratulating you, and we all get excited, but now Allah will congratulate you! What greater blessing?


Following is from Radio Islam:


The Harms of Zina [Adultery/Fornication] are Manifold:


Allah Ta’aala becomes very angry.

The reckoning in the hereafter will be very severe.

The person will enter Jahannum.

The Barakah (blessing) of his Rizq (sustenance) is lost.

He is deprived from doing good.

He becomes hated and cursed in the eyes of the common people.

The nation involved in Zina will be afflicted with droughts.

The spreading of diseases and plagues.

The destruction of the locality.

The cause of earthquakes.

The birth of illegitimate children.


Anas (RA) reports that Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: "Imaan is a garb with which Allah clothes whomsoever he wishes. If a person commits adultery this garb is snatched away and if he repents it is again returned" (Kitâb-ul-Kabair).




It is reported that once Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, "O Muslims, fear adultery as it has six consequences. Three in this world and three in the hereafter. As for the worldly consequences; spiritual light from the face vanishes, life is shortened and a person becomes poverty-stricken. As for the hereafter; it causes Allah’s displeasure, difficult reckoning and it obligates the punishment of Jahannum." (Kitâb-ul- Kabair)

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by Abu Hurairah (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Allah, the Exalted, says: `I will contend on the Day of Resurrection against three (types of) people: One who makes a covenant in My Name and then breaks it; one who sells a free man as a slave and devours his price; and one who hires a workman and having taken full work from him, does not pay him his wages.'''
