The Islamic faith holds marriage in high esteem. The Quran, the holy book of the faith, teaches that Allah created men and women so that both would have the peace and fulfillment of companionship. Marriage enables two adults to enter into this kind of mutually enriching relationship, remaining true to Allah’s command of loyalty between spouses. The bearing of children also plays a key role in preserving the sacredness of marriage intimacy, as the family unit remains the building block of society in Islam.

Marriage also helps Muslim men and women to preserve their modesty by allowing them an outlet for sexual desires. Without such an outlet, the faith teaches, a person’s desires can take control and put his or her human dignity at risk. For this reason, Islam recommends marriage for all adults but stresses its importance for those who may otherwise be tempted into promiscuity.
