Marriage means different things for different people. A common question our clients ask us matchmakers is how do we make our marriage for God, but still enjoy it. This beautiful, and very short, comment by Shaykh Aslam is a great insight into doing just that. When your daily acts and reminders within your marriage are a means of becoming a better person and helping your partner become better – through love, mercy and concern; then you’re really completing half your deen.
This excerpt was originally extracted from a 2016 lecture by the lovely folk over at Sout Ilaahi.
Q: Shaykh, how do we make our marriage a means of having a relationship with Allah, meaning husband and wife and the intimacy with Allah (swt), can you give us the secrets?
A: (Shaykh Aslam) The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If the husband wakes up and then he wakes up his wife for the Morning Prayer, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, Allah have mercy upon that husband. And if the wife wakes up and she awakens the husband for the Morning Prayer, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, Allah have mercy upon that woman who wakes up her husband.”
So this relationship of marriage should also be companionship of treading the path to Allah (swt) by encouraging each other upon worship, reminding each other of Allah’s blessings and Allah’s favours, reminding each other of righteous and pious acts so that both stay strong in worship to Allah (swt).
This question was answered by Shaykh Mohammed Aslam at a public lecture in 2016.
