Importance of Nikkah

Islam has put much emphasis on Nikah. Allah stated in the Holy Quran that one of the basic need of Man is to have a spouse.


“And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves that you may dwell in tranquillity with them and He has put love and mercy between your hearts: verily in that are signs for those who reflect.” (Surah Al Rum 30:21)


Spouses complement each other as Allah stated it so beautifully:


“They are your garments and you are their garments” (Surah Al Baqarah 2:187)


Rasulullah Sallallhu Alyhe Wa Sallam clearly stated: “there is no celibacy in Islam’.


It is a practice of our Prophet  Muhammad Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam who He said that the person who ignores my practice he is not of me.




النِّكَاحُ مِنْ سُنَّتِي فَمَنْ لَمْ يَعْمَلْ بِسُنَّتِي فَلَيْسَ مِنِّي


 [Marriage is my way; he who does not follow my way does not belong to me]




Nikkah is an important part of Islamic life. It completes faith. Obscenity and shamelessness could be controlled easily by means of Nikah, that is why being occupied in Nikah is rather good than being engaged in Nafli Ibadat according to Sharia. It is also the source to increase Muslims in this world.


Its commands vary in different situations: sometimes it is Mandatory , sometimes it is Sunnat e Muakkidah ( Important)  and sometimes it is Forbidden.


Mandatory ( Wajib ): When a man believes if he does not get married he will involve himself in sin.


Important (Sunnat e Muakkida) : In normal/usual circumstances.


Forbidden ( Haram):: When he believes to treat his wife with cruelty and injustice.
