How an Islamic Marriage Takes Place?

Marriage has great Importance In Islam. In Islam its obligatory to get married for a person who is able to afford it. Islam supports institution of marriage to stop moral corruption in the society. Marriage saves society from Zina and other haram activities. Islam also makes process of marriage very simple and easy so that everyone rich or poor can afford it.  In Islam Marriage is also known as Nikah.

Prophet of Allah Muhammad SAW said "O you young men! Whoever is able to marry should marry, for that will help him to lower his gaze and guard his modesty." [Al-Bukhari]

Now a days people are spending millions of rupees on marriages, girl's family giving dowry to boy, Mehndi, Barat, giving jewelry and gifts of  millions of rupees. all these things has nothing do with Islam. but sadly these things are now common even In Muslims marriages. this situation has made it difficult to get married for poor and middle class people.

the process of Marriage is really simple In Islam. Islam says a marriage should take place in Mosque. boy should give Mehr to girl. Allah says in the Quran "And give the women (on marriage) their mahr as a (nikah) free gift" (Quran 4:4).

Nikah should be offered in Mosque in presence of both girl and boy. after Nikah boy should give a dawat to guests that is known as Walima in which food is offered to guests. this is how a marriage completes in Islam simply.

now a days the marrige has become really complicated and expensive specially for the girl's family who gives dowry as well as faces expenses of Barat. on other hand In Islam there are absolute no burden on girl's family. Boy have to give Mehr and Dawat of Walima.

So we should all learn simplicity from our religion Islam and make the Marriage simple so that poor and middle class people don't face problems in getting married.
