Qur’anic verses:

{Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater
than we have strength to bear.}
[Al-Baqarah: 286]

{Man was created weak (in resolution)}

{When they him, they did extol him, and in
their (amazement) cut their hands: they said,
Allah preserve us! No mortal is this! This is
none other than a noble angel}

[Yusuf: 31]


Love does not mean the lustful desire. This is a false love. No sooner does a man desire a woman than he

hates her after satisfying himself. Love, which is mainly portrayed in romantic stories, is just a kind of

fiction and dreams. Love only grows between spouses. As years pass, company and kind treatment enhance

such love. Real love gradually replaces the illusive love.


Prophetic Hadiths:

'Amr ibn Al-'As related Once the Prophet
(pbuh) sent me as a leader of an army in
which there was Abu Bakr and `Umar as
soldiers. When I came back, I asked the
Prophet (pbuh) O Allah’s Messenger! Who do
love most? Why, the Prophet (pbuh) asked.
'Amr said, I would like to know. The Prophet
(pbuh) answered, 'Aisha. 'Amr said, I mean
from among men. The Prophet (pbuh) said,
her father.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them

both) related,

husband was a slave called
Mughith as if I see him now, going behind
Barira and weeping with his tears flowing down
his beard. The Prophet (pbuh) said to 'Abbas,
O 'Abbas! Are you not astonished at the love of
f Mughith for Barira and the hatred of Barira
for Mughith!'? Then the Prophet (pbuh) said,
Why do not you return to him'? She said, O
Allah’s Messenger! Do you order me to do so?
He said, No, I only intercede for him. She said,
I am not in need of him.
[Reported by Al-Bukhari]


Barira was a bondwoman. She got married to Mughith. When she regained her freedom, she was given

the choice either to remain a servant with her husband or to separate him. She preferred to tree herself from

the bondage of slavery.


Blessed Marriage
