POV on Marriage

Before you think about marriage or the next stage of your life or the beginning of your new family, your own family or completing half of your deen through marriage, ask yourself . . "Have you complete your duty towards your parents?"

Marriage is not just about linking two persons. It is about accepting new responsibilities and a duty of care. Any breach of duty could lead towards negligence that may cause harm in the marriage itself.
How can you start a new duty as a husband when you can't provide comforts to your parents?
How can you starts a new duty as a wife when you can't improve yourself to be a good woman?
Yes, Jannah lies on husband's faith but we are carrying our parent's dignity until their very end.
Marriage fails when both parties failed to complete their duty. Love is not enough. You need trust and rationality. You need effort and hard work. To build not only yourself, but for both, one you have taken as wife.

“When she is a daughter, she opens a door of Jannah for her father. When she is a wife, she completes half of the deen of her husband. When she is a mother, Jannah lies under her feet – if everyone knew the true status of a Muslim women in Islam, even the men would want to be women.”—Akram Nadawi

“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means.” [4:34]
