“What are my rights and responsibilities?”

That’s what young people ask me about when it comes to marriage. That’s their main concern. 

But a good marriage is not based around rights and responsibilities.

Instead:

“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” [30:21]

He did not say rights and responsibilities.

He said: tranquility, affection, and mercy.

That’s what a good marriage is built upon.

That is a sign of Allah.
