It is also a useful reference for those who want to apply the teachings of Islam in their marital life. The book is suitable for beginners as well as advanced learners of fiqh.

The chapter on marriage also cites various evidences from the Quran, the Sunnah, and the opinions of the scholars to support its rulings. For example, it mentions the verse: "And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing." [Quran 24:32]

It also mentions the hadith: "O young men, whoever among you can afford it, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and guarding one's chastity. And whoever cannot afford it should fast, for it will be a shield for him." [Bukhari and Muslim]

It also mentions the consensus (ijma') of the scholars that marriage is a recommended act (mandub) for those who have the ability and need for it, and an obligatory act (wajib) for those who fear falling into sin if they do not marry.

The chapter on marriage also provides practical guidance and advice for those who want to get married or are already married. For example, it mentions the etiquette of proposing, accepting, or rejecting a marriage offer, the recommended time and place for holding the marriage contract (nikah) and the wedding feast (walimah), the rights and duties of the spouses towards each other, the importance of kindness, affection, and mutual consultation in marital life, and the solutions for marital problems and disputes.

The chapter on marriage also highlights the benefits and wisdoms of marriage in Islam, such as fulfilling one's natural desire, preserving one's chastity, increasing one's progeny, strengthening one's faith, attaining Allah's mercy and pleasure, and following the example of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions.

It also warns against the harms and dangers of delaying or avoiding marriage without a valid reason, such as falling into temptation, wasting one's youth, missing out on good opportunities, depriving oneself of happiness and tranquility, and disobeying Allah and His Messenger.

The chapter on marriage also clarifies some of the misconceptions and misunderstandings that some people may have about marriage in Islam, such as the notion that marriage is a burden or a hindrance to one's worship or education, or that marriage is a matter of personal choice or preference that does not require any guidance or consultation from others.

It also refutes some of the false practices and customs that some people may follow in their marriages, such as extravagance, wastefulness, ostentation, mixing of genders, music, dancing, unlawful contracts, unlawful conditions, unlawful dowries, unlawful divorces, and unlawful remarriages. e0e6b7cb5c
