Marriage is perhaps the most life-changing event in one’s journey– it comes equally with duties and privileges, responsibilities and benefits. As much as it is love and solace, it is also effort and compromise. It’s for this reason that Allah the Almighty has given specific commands for marital bliss.
Allah says in Ayat 21 of Surah Al Room: “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.”
Allah helps the couple by placing between them love and compassion. Therefore, now it’s the duty of both to use this blessing, and show each other affection and mercy. Because otherwise, it would be tough to find peace within one another, an important purpose of marriage as is clear from the verse.
In Ayat 187 of Surah Al Baqarah, Allah says, “They (your wives) are a garment for you and you are a garment for them.” Garment is a suitable description for a spouse. Like the physical proximity between the body and the garment, the husband and the wife should be close to each other, and just physically. They should trust one another to be able to talk about their fears, concerns, worries, anxieties and secrets. Like how a garment shields our physical self from dirt, grime and vagaries of weather, so should a husband and wife protect one another from the mischief that’s ripe in the world. Like the way a garment covers our bodies, including our bodily injuries/marks, similarly, a husband and wife should cover up each other’s drawbacks. Like a garment adds beauty to us, so should a husband and wife enhance the grace of each other’s persona. That both husband and wife are described as garments indicates equal responsibility of each towards the other.
Without doubt, Allah has elucidated the essence of marriage in the Holy Quran. Sharing a marriage-specific verse from the Quran, written in calligraphy, and framed, with your spouse– this would make for a precious, wonderful Islamic wedding anniversary gift. If you search for Muslim wedding anniversary gifts on Google, and you should be able to find one which you would like to order to give as a gift to your spouse on your wedding anniversary.
