The Bride’s BoonTuhfat Al-‘Arous
Mahmoud M Al-Istamblli
Translated By:Dr. AbdElhamid EliwaAl Azhar University
All praise is due to Allah, Exalted be He, the One who mademarriage lawful and superior. He made it for the continuation of mankind and the population of the earth. He the Almighty said in theclear verses of His Book:{(And among His Signs is this, that He created for
you mates fromamong yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and Hehas put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are Signsfor
those who reflect)}[Al-Rum 30:21]These verses of the Noble Qur'an clearly show that in contrast toother religions like Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism etc. which considercelibacy or monasticism as a great virtue and a means of salvation,Islam considers marriage as one of the most virtuous and approvedinstitutions. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) declared,"There is no monasticism in Islam." He further ordained,"O you young men! Whoever is able to marry should marry, for thatwill help him to lower his gaze and guard his modesty."[Al-Bukhari]"Many the affectionate and fertile (woman), for
I will compete withthe other Prophets with the number of my followers on the Day of Judgement.” [Ahmad and Tabarani]The human desire, although common to all living beings, in case of men and women there are some unique aspects. There are in Islam,certain etiquette upon anyone who marries and wishes to consummatehis marriage with his wife. Most Muslims today, even those who exertthemselves in Islamic worship have either neglected or become totallyignorant of these Islamic etiquette.It is also important that you know how to deal with your wife to getthe reward of this worldly life and the Hereafter. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) is reported to have said, “There are three things that bring happiness: a righteous womanwhom you admire when seeing her, and whom you trust as regardsyour honor and property when leaving her, a good mount that enablesyou catch your friends, and a wide house that has many utilities. Butthere are three things that bring adversity: a woman whom you dislikewhen seeing her, who hurts you with her tongue, and whom you do
not trust as regards your honor and property when leaving her, a badmount that bothers you if you heat it, and if you do not beat it, it doesnot help you catch your friends, and a narrow house that has fewutilities."[Narrated by Al-Hakim] “Whoever Allah grants him a righteous woman has got one half of his re1igion. Thus, he should fear Allah in the other half"[Narrated by At-Tabarani]
