Allah has created us [ the human ] through our parents [ man and woman ]. With the unique relationship between them. Its purpose to continue our generation in this world. And the best way for it by “ Marriage “ according Islam Rules.
Unless for these cases, Adam alaihissalam, Eve, and Isa alaihissalam. Allah has said about the creation of them in quran al karim.
|The Similarities Between the Creation of Adam and the Creation of `Isa|
|Allah said,إِنَّ مَثَلَ عِيسَى عِندَ اللَّهِ
(Verily, the likeness of `Isa before Allah) regarding Allah’s ability, since He created him without a father,
(is the likeness of Adam), for Allah created Adam without a father or a mother. Rather,
خَلَقَهُ مِن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ
(He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: “Be!” and he was.)
Therefore, He Who created Adam without a father or a mother is able to create `Isa, as well, without a father. If the claim is made that `Isa is Allah’s son because he was created without a father, then the same claim befits Adam even more. However, since such a claim regarding Adam is obviously false, then making the same claim about `Isa is even more false.
Furthermore, by mentioning these facts, Allah emphasizes His ability, by creating Adam without a male or female, Hawa’ from a male without a female, and `Isa from a mother without a father, compared to His creating the rest of creation from male and female. This is why Allah said in Surah Maryam,
وَلِنَجْعَلَهُ ءَايَةً لِّلْنَّاسِ
(And We made him a sign for mankind) ﴿19: 21﴾.
Allah said in this Ayah,
الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكَ فَلاَ تَكُنْ مِّن الْمُمْتَرِينَ
((This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt.) meaning, this is the only true story about `Isa, and what is beyond truth save falsehood Allah next commands His Messenger to call those who defy the truth, regarding `Isa, to the Mubahalah (the curse).
Islam doesn’t allow this ummah [ muslim and muslimah ] to choose a single blessedness. Becouse most of our prophet married , carrying on their lineage.
We can see in surah Ar Ro’du verse 38:
And We have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants. And it was not for a messenger to come with a sign except by permission of Allah . For every term is a decree.
And in surah Ar Ruum verse 21.
And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.
The Purpose of Marriage in Islam
Ayatollah Ibrahim Amini, explained about it. Marriage is a natural necessity for every human being. It bears many good outcomes of which the most important ones are:
- The formation of a family through which one can find security and peace of mind.
- The natural sexual desire is both strong and significant.
- Reproduction: Through marriage, the procreation of mankind is continued.
A great deal of emphasis has been given in the Holy Qur’an and the traditions to both marriage and having children. The Almighty Allah states in the Holy Qur’an: “And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves.” (30:21)
The Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) stated: “There is no better structure founded in Islam other than marriage.”
“Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said, “Engage in marriage, because this is the tradition of the Prophet of Allah.”
“The Prophet of Allah further stated: “Whoever chooses to follow my tradition must get married and produce offspring through marriage (and increase the population of Muslims), so that on the Day of Resurrection, I shall confront other Ummah (nations) with the (great) numbers of my Ummah.”
Imam Ali ar-Ridha (peace be upon) stated: ‘The greatest gain for a man is a faithful woman who, when she sees him, becomes happy, and protects his property and her own honor in his absence.”
And now, about wedding. Here, I will not share about my wedding, there was nothing special about mine. But, I would love to share our sister’s wedding ( Theresa Corbin ). Theresa shares how a modest budget for her nikah and walimah resulted in a special, personal and memorable ceremony. Read more at My $5 wedding.
I also loved Papatia’s writing about her marriage. A great muslimah choose a good husband and vice versa; for pure women are for pure men. She is obedient and respectful to him. He also respects her in return. She is lovely to her husband and eager to please him. You can read more about it at Marriage: a half of my dien.
Barakallahu lakuma wabaroka ‘alaikuma, wa jama’a bainakuma fii khoir.
Ajmal Farha, it’s only a reminder for myself.
