“O ye people! Fear you Lord, Who created you from a single being and created therefrom its’ mate, and from the two spread many men and women, and fear Allah, in whose name you appeal to one another, and fear Him particularly in respecting of ties of kinship, Verily Allah watches over you”.
(Holy Quran 4:2)
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said: “Some people marry for beauty, others for rank, and others for wealth; but you should marry a good and pious woman”.
“The relationship between a husband and wife should be as between two true and sincere friends”.
(-Malfuzat, Volume IV)
