Continuing from our series of the previous articles, today our article will move forward to the next part of the Fiqh of Nikah. In Part 1, we discussed a brief introduction of Nikah and how it has deeper wisdom behind its creation. This article will take a step further for the discussion regarding the Ruling of Nikah.
The Rulings related to Nikah.
Generally, we are under the assumption that Nikah is recommended for every Mulsim brother and sister. However, when asked to reflect, we are not clear about the ruling and recommendations of Nikah. Let us bring this clearer to you.
The rulings for Nikah differ in different situations depending upon the individual. Individuals in different situations reflect varied rulings for Nikah.
Nikah is said to be mandatory in a situation when an individual is afraid to commit Zina. Zina is one of the grave sins that Allah has forbidden. So, if a human feels that he/she will commit Zina in the absence of Nikah, it becomes obligatory for that person to find the right spouse immediately.
Nikah is recommended for those individuals who have the means to take the responsibility of her spouse both emotionally and financially. In case the individual is not strong enough then it is futile to engage in Nikah.
In situations where individuals are not confident about giving happiness and pleasure to their partners, then in such cases, Nikah is disliked. This also means that individuals who cannot fulfill the physical needs and desires of their partners should not make it an obligation on themselves.
There are certain relationships that Allah has commanded to be Haram in Islam like your real brother, sister, father or mother. In such situations, if the person marries the restricted person, the Nikah will be deemed as Haram.
As we go in further details of the Fiqh of Nikah, what according to you should we discuss in Part 3 of this article series? We would love to write as per your suggestions.
