The Beauty of Marriage

Student of Al Huda
It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them.[Al Baqarah:187]
This verse of the Quran reveals the basic purpose and concept of marriage in Islam. Islam enjoins that a wife and husband should have the most intimate and loving relationship. Each should cover, protect, and safeguard the interests of the other partner. This profound and revolutionary verse has the following 5 practical implications:
1- The fact that man and woman are considered garments to each other suggests that both have an equal status in sharing the responsibilities of marriage.
2- As the garment covers the body in such a way that there is nothing between the garment and the body, the husband and wife should be so close and intimate to each other that there should be no secrets between them. Both confide fully in each other and share their joys and sorrows without any hesitation.
3- The task of the garment is to protect the body from outside dangers. The husband and wife accordingly protect each other from all external dangers and work together to build a home and a tranquil refuge from the harshness of daily life.
4- A garment not only covers the body but also gives it beauty and grace. Similarly, husband and wife should not only cover and shield each other from external worries, temptations, abuses….etc., but should do so with grace and dignity.
5- No one likes to live without clothes, hence men and women should aspire to get married and serve as garments to each other.
From these points we can see the importance and the beauty of marriage, so let us not forget half of our deen and think about it carefully before we rush into something.
