There are ayats in the Koran where there is Allah's Command about person’s need of creation the family.  It is told in the 21th ayat of Sura "Rhum":

"And from Allah's signs - that He created from you wives for you that you found calm in them, I established between you mutual love and compassion. Truly, in they are clear signs for people who reflect".

According to this ayat, Allah Supreme created the man and the woman for each other, having shown the favor to them.  Their connection is possible only by a marriage – the nikah which resolves proximity between the man and the woman.  Islam attaches great value to a family.  Nikah is the base for its creation.  Marriage allows to keep moral in society, to bring up healthy generation.  Those men and women who avoid marriage, are inclined to illegal communications that can lead them to punishment both in this life, and in the future.

Muslim marriages: how to be protected from gigolos and bandits?

User Rating:  / 0

The specialist of the coordination center of Fund of support of Islamic culture, science and education, the Islamic blogger Magomedbashir Albogachiyev thinks: the Moslems, wishing to marry, need to be able to protect themself from gigolos and bandits.

There are women who marry strange men, strange people register their wedding, thus the man often hides about himself a lot of information (it can become clear later that this person already has a family somewhere in Tajikistan or Kazakhstan). Being in Russia, he receives everything that is necessary from the woman, then leaves her to the mercy of fate and comes back home.

Appeal to moderation in religion questions.

How great and wonderful position of Muslims is! How pleasant to look at their brotherhood, sincere mutual respect for the sake of Allah! They sincerely rejoice for progress and achievements of the brother. Their love to the brother is so surprising as they put brother’s needs above all needs, or at least can share with him the favourite thing!

And how pleasant to look at their condescension even when the brother doesn't share opinion of the brother on any question of divinity (fiqh).
