Marriage has a very high status in the religion of Islam. Allah (SWT) states in the Qur’an:
“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.” (30:21)
The benefits of marriage are many. These include protecting one’s religion, helping to keep people away from sin, guarding one’s chastity and a source of tranquillity and peace for both husband and wife.
