Allah (SWT) says,

Your spouses are a garment for you as you are for them.” (Quran, 2:187)

Marriage is an essential part of a Muslim’s life. Islam encourages us to be better individuals to fulfill our responsibilities either in society or in our families.

In this post, let’s see some of the important marriage lessons highlighted in the Quran. If you truly want to have a successful marriage life, then you need to know what Allah (SWT) said about the blessings of Nikkah.

1. Tranquility

“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]

This verse affirms that spouses are created for each other, and they should find peace within their marriage. One of the aims of getting married is tranquillity. This verse describes how Allah puts mercy and affection in the hearts of spouses so they can live peacefully together.

The affection is divine and makes the love timeless. When you’re forgiving and empathetic towards your spouse, you’ll be building a stronger and more stable relationship that can endure many life challenges.

2. Security 

“It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her…” [7:189]

This verse emphasizes the origin of man and how his spouse was created. Creating your spouse from you means you’re meant to provide a sense of security. Security should be the spiritual bond in your marriage. Your marriage is meant to be nurtured and driven to success. 

3. Duties of Spouses

“They are clothing for you, and you are clothing for them…”  [2:187]

    The verse describes your spouse as your clothing.  Both the husband and wife have this role. Their functions are to protect and be each other’s comfort space. Both individuals must fill the gaps in and out of the marriage. 

    Being like a garment means having each other’s back. You must be your spouse’s support system and vice versa. Also, it implies spending quality time with each other. Your marriage must be the warmth that you can confide in and shield you from other life challenges.

    4. Honor the Bond

    O humanity! Be mindful of your Lord, Who created you from a single soul, and He created its mate, and through both, He spread countless men and women. And be mindful of Allah — in Whose Name you appeal to one another — and honor family ties. Surely Allah is ever Watchful over you.” (Quran, 4:1)

      Another marriage lesson from the Quran is seen in this verse where Allah reminds us that we come from Adam and Hauwa. The Quran helps you to understand that you must honor the spiritual bond between you and your spouse.  You must treat your marriage with utmost respect and treat the relationship as an act of worship.

      5. Shared bond

      “O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women…” [4:1]

        Surah An-Nisa, which means Women, addresses the rights of a woman in Islam. This verse depicts the shared bond between a man and a woman. It also signifies how important you are to your spouse, and you’re being specially made for each other.
