The Holy Qur’an says:
“And among His Signs is this that He created your mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your ; verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.” [30: 21] Marriage as a Spiritual Bond Marriage is essentially a spiritual bond of union in Islamic point of view, rather than a mere physical relationship. Both husband and wife should love each other and try their best to maintain a healthy relationship.
Marriage is the strongest of bonds, in which Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) unites the two Muslim partners, who come together on the basis of love, understanding, co-operation and mutual advice, and establish a Muslim family in which children will live and grow up, and they will develop the good character and behavior taught by Islam. The Muslim family is the strongest component of a Muslim society when its members are productive and constructive, helping and encouraging one another to be good and righteous, and competing with one another in good works.
Intention of Life-time Maintenance of Relationship For a Muslim husband and wife, marriage should be contracted with the firm resolve of maintaining the relation for life-time. This is the ideal condition in which mutual cooperation; the common man can practice harmony and love normally and smoothly.
