MWM invite you to a unique marriage event …

Today the world is seeing a new era where marriage is no longer considered necessary or even significant for a lasting relationship. Islam has laid down rules and regulations for marriage and has considered marriage an important and essential part of a Muslim’s life. A lack of understanding of the weight placed on selecting the right partner and nurturing the relationship has in itself caused behaviours prohibited in Islam such as deception, sexual relationships/encounters outside of marriage,domestic violence, etc which are increasing.

Hadith 1

“Marriage is part of my sunnah, and whoever does not follow my sunnah has nothing to do with me. Get married, for I will boast of your great numbers before the nations. Whoever has the means, let him get married, and whoever does not, then he should fast for it will diminish his desire.”

[Source: Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol. 3, Book 9, Hadith 1846]

Hadith 2

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever Allah provides with a righteous wife, then Allah has assisted him in half of his religion. Let him fear Allah regarding the second half.”

[Source: al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ 992, Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to As-Suyuti]

Hadith 3

Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings upon him) said:

“Iblis places his throne upon water; he then sends detachments (for creating dissension); the nearer to him in rank are those who are most notorious in creating dissension between husband and wife.. One of them comes and says: “I did so and so.” And he says: “You have done nothing.” Then one amongst them comes and says: “I did not spare so and so until I sowed the seed of discord between a husband and a wife.” Then Satan goes near him and says: “You have done well.” He then embraces him.”
