“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.
“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.
