Holy Prophet (PBUH)

Ahadith (Sayings) of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him)

Abū Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be on him) said:"The most perfect of believers in the matter of faith is he whose behaviour is best; and the best of you are those who behave best towards their wives."

(Tirmidhī)


"The best of you are those who behave best towards their wives."

(Tirmidhī)


"The most blessed woman is the one who's wedding does not involve too much expense."


"There is no greater provision in the world than a pious woman."

(Ibn Majah)


"Blessed is the marriage which comes about with ease and entails no hardship, it must not entail too heavy a burden of expenses nor should the dowry be too much for the bridegroom to pay."

(Abu Dawud)


"When a man has married, he has completed one half of his faith."


The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) instructed his companions to pray for blessings and success before starting any matter of faith or worldly affair. It is called ' Istikharah' prayer. Two rak'at of nafal salat should be offered for Istikharah. In the first rak'at, after reciting Surah Al-Fatihah, recitation of Surah Al-Kafirun and in the second rak'at, Surah Al-Ikhlas is traditional. In qa'dah (sitting down after sajdah), after tashahhud, Durud and traditional prayers, this prayer should be recited with humility:

"O Allah, I seek the good which is in Your knowledge. I beseech good fortune which is in Your control. I beg great blessings from You. For You are All-Powerful and I have no power. You are All-Knowing and I have no knowledge. Your knowledge encompasses the unseen. O Allah, if it be within Your knowledge that this project is good for me, in the matters of my spiritual and worldly affairs and it results in good then ordain it for me, facilitate it for me and bless it for me, If it is in Your knowledge that this matter is detrimental for my faith, my worldly affairs and is eventually harmful, then remove it from me and cause me to move away from it. Enable me to attain good wherever it may be and then make me satisfied and contented with it."

Istikharah Prayer (Seeking Divine Blessings)


Ibni 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,"There is no room for celibacy in Islam."

"Surely, the whole world is a provision, and there is no greater provision of the world than a pious woman."

(Ibn Majah, Abwabun-Nikah)

(Trimidhi, Kitabun-Nikah)
