Last months was the wedding months for many of my friends. Mabrook! Subhanallah, may Allah grant them a peaceful and a righteous family. It started last year though where one by one, my friends are moving into a family life. It seems that people who are getting married are getting younger and younger. I wonder why?
But still, there are those out there are still not getting married. Why? For the same reason that I kept hearing over and over again. Money! Some parent does not let their children to get married just because they don’t have enough money yet. Some feel they need a huge money in order for them to invite all their relatives and friends to come to their walimah. But how enough is enough? But remember folks, Islam does not make marriage difficult. It’s our culture and the social pressure around us which made it so.
Al-Quran is our dear guidance, so let follow it’s admonitions.
‘And marry those among you who are single, and those who are fit among your males 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. ‘ (An Nur, 24:32)
May Allah forgive our sins and make it easy for us on our journey toward him.
p/s: When am I getting married? :)
