Marriage is an important institution of human life regulating relations between the sexes and Islam makes it incumbent on every Muslim man to lead a married life as that can lead to a virtuous life free from immorality and emotional inhibition. The Holy Qur’an says: ‘They(your wives) are as a garment to you, and you as a garment to them’. The husband and wife are for mutual support, mutual comfort and mutual protection, fitting into each other as garments fit into each other. The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “O ye young people, whoever can afford marriage should marry, for that will help him lover his gaze and guard his modesty. Whoever is not able to marry is recommended to fast, as fasting diminish es (his) sexual power”. 2 In another version by Al-Bayhaqi, it reads: “W hen a man gets married, he gets one half of the religion. Thus, he should fear Allah in the ot her half”. Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet ( s.a.w. ) said: “There are three people whom Allah (s.w.a) will surely help: a warrior in the cause of Allah, a slave who wants to free himself by a payable contract and whoever seeks chastity by marriage”.
