Marriage is very important in Islam. The idea of moderation and balance that Islam has presented in relation to marriage is very comprehensive and unique. In the eyes of Islam, marriage is not just the fulfillment of human desires and the satisfaction of natural emotions. Just as man has many natural needs, so to marriage is an important natural need of man. Therefore, in Islam, man is allowed to fulfill his natural need in a just and civilized manner, and Islam has said that marriage is necessary for the survival and protection of human beings. The importance of marriage can be understood by the Ahadith. Hazrat Abdullah Bin Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W) stated that Hazrat Masood (R.A) narrated that among you who can fulfill the responsibilities of a spouse (marriage) must marry because it (marriage) protects the private parts (ie, protects the eyes from being distracted and the emotions from getting out of control) and those who do not have the strength to carry the responsibilities of marriage should fast from time to time to break the lust.
Similarly, once when some of the companions, in view of their monotony and interest in worship and piety, asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) to put an end to their lust, the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade them to do so and called it an escape from life. Because Islam does not like the way to escape from life in such a manner.
Man is in a state of restlessness and naturally needs rest and tranquility and in the same way, he has the temperament to fulfill his natural emotions and human desires. Comfort and happiness are in their nature. Marriage is a very effective and effective way for man to succeed in his purpose of creation, to create uniformity and interest in worship, to fulfill the rights of the slaves well, and to bring his contradictory innate attributes in the right direction. Allah has kept many religious and worldly benefits for man in marriage. For example, social benefits, family benefits, moral benefits, social benefits, psychological benefits, another name for benefits and virtues is marriage. Man gets not only sexual peace through marriage but also peace of heart and mental satisfaction for the sake of all kinds of peace. The woman is an invaluable gift for man and a source of peace and contentment for man, so the man who values woman lives successful and peaceful life If a person tries to turn away from marriage which is a natural human need, then man faces dangerous consequences. Without marriage, the whole system becomes chaotic. With the exception of a few exceptions in history and the views of a few religious people, all human beings in the world have always recognized marriage as an important necessity in the light of history.
In every religion and nation, without the prescribed rituals and customs, the relationship between men and women is considered to be bad and degraded.
Here is a brief overview of religions that have viewed marriage as unimportant and have rejected marriage. He said that it is important to take sannyas (ie not to get married) as well as to suppress human desires and suppress natural emotions for spiritual and moral development. The ideas and thoughts of these people are not only against human nature but also against the system of nature.
Dr. Israr Ahmed explores his version in these words: “You will see the concept of monasticism in Christians as well as in Hindus. There are other religions in the world, such as Buddhism and Jainism, which share the same notion that marriage and family life are inferior in terms of spirituality. In this sense, the higher life in these religions is a life of abstraction. Some people of these religions consider marriage as an obstacle to spiritual development. For both men and women, the life of celibacy is given a high place of spirituality in the eyes of those who marry. They are considered as second rate citizens in the society as they have lost their status by getting married”.
People pay a huge dowry for the sake of family honor and dignity and they are not able to pay it, so Hazrat Omar forbade them to do so. There is no bound for a wealthy person, who has the power to pay which sounds pretty crap. Today, in the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent and in Bangladesh, Muslim couples are troubled by dowry and many rituals in relation to Muslim girls. The more dowries I have, the sooner I can get married. Sometimes marriage depends on a higher dowry, which is why many men are deprived of marriage.
