Nikah and Benefits


The Best Way to Display Love is Nikah

Hazrat Abdullah Ibne Abbas(RA) narrates that the Beloved Prophet of Mercy (PBUH) said, “You will not find anything better for people in love than Nikah.” (Ibne Majah Shareef Hadith 1920)

Ponder the fact that before Nikah two people do not even know each other. They are from different families and backgrounds. An Arab and a non-Arab, an Asian and African, when they are legally married they become so devoted and attached to each other that their love becomes such that they do not leave other until death. The relationship that is developed as a result of Nikah is not temporary or brief, rather it is long lasting and permanent.
