In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Merciful.
I came across one of my favourite verses today… it brings back memories of my wedding day and pretty much every other wedding since. Perhaps if married couples remembered and actually reflected on this beyond their weddings, we wouldn’t have so many broken homes… #JustSaying
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. – Surah Ar-Rum, Verse 21.
It sounds romantic and looks good on wedding cards, but in order to truly benefit from it, we must remember and reflect In Sha Allah.
May Allah make our spouses the coolness of our eyes!
Aameen. Often people revive relationships of old with school friends and colleagues, and seemingly neglect to do the same with their marriage. It’s not about closing it off and starting again, it’s simply re-energising the bond with reminders of why you came together, which, in our case as Muslims, is to ultimately reach Allah “with a pure heart” (Surah Shu’araa, ayah 89).
