Different people follow different Religions so they have Religious books accordingly to seek Guidance from God. Prayers hold a lot of importance in bringing positive change between couple’s disputive attitudes. But the change also needs to be brought in their personality as an individual. Couples need to learn to compromise with each other’s flaws and lackings. Then eventually prayer’s work and they work best!!
Few Guidelines must be adhered for a Happy Marriage from Holy Qur’an, Bible, Injil(Gospel), Tawrat(Torah), Suhuf, Zaboor(Psalms).
- Qur’an is followed by Muslims *A book of Almighty on Prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W).
- Bible, Injil or Gospel (a portion of bible) is followed by Christians. *A book of Prophet Isa (A.S) or Jesus.
- God sent Torah to Prophet Musa (A.S) or Moses.
- Hazrat Dawood (David) was given the book Zaboor or Psalms.
Qur’an is the only book in which not a single word has been changed. And it is in its original form and is the last revelation from God.
In Qur’an, for the very start of a marriage life that is the first night, it is recommended for couples to say BISMILLAH before entering the house and recite the verse:
“Allahumma inni asaluka min khiriha/khairihi wa khair ma hya/hwa lah,,,wa a oothu bika min sharriha/sharrehe wa sharr ma hya/hwa lah”اللهم انى اسالك من خيره وخير ماهو له وأعوذ بك من شره وشر ماهو له
Then couples should pray 2 rakaat for a happy married life ahead and then husband should sit beside his bride and recite any Quranic verse as it would lead them to a comfort and stressfree zone. And then they can move ahead.
To explain the act of Intercourse, Qur’an explains this pure relation as:
وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْمَحِيضِ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَاعْتَزِلُواْ النِّسَاء فِي الْمَحِيضِ وَلاَ تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّىَ يَطْهُرْنَ فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَكُمُ اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِينَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
نِسَاؤُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ فَأْتُواْ حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِئْتُمْ وَقَدِّمُواْ لأَنفُسِكُمْ وَاتَّقُواْ اللَّهَ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّكُم مُّلاقُوهُ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
222 They question (O Muhammad) concerning menstruation. Say: It is a suffer, so let women alone at such times and go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah has enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loves those who turn unto Him, and loves those who have a care for cleanness.
223 Your women are a tilth for you (to put seeds) so go to your tilth (refers to implantation i.e vagina) as ye will, and send (good deeds) before you for your souls, and fear Allah, and know that ye will (one day) meet Him. Give glad tidings to believers, (O Muhammad).
Newly married couples often are granted upon this prayer so they can have a healthy relationship.
بارك الله لكما وبارك عليكما وجمع بينكما فى خير
”Barak Allah lakuma wa barak alikoma wajamaa bainakuma fi khair”
This means “May Allah bless upon you in righteousness (Amen)”.
Qur’an says about Love and Tranquility between couples which is a crux of marriage!
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
And of His signs is that He created for you spouses from yourselves that you may find tranquillity in them; and He ordained between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who reflect. (30:21)
For Intimacy and Closeness between Partners, Qur’an says:
أُحِلَّ لَكُمْ لَيْلَةَ الصِّيَامِ الرَّفَثُ إِلَىٰ نِسَائِكُمْ ۚ هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّ
“On the night of the fast it is lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives. They are clothing/covering (libaas) for you and you for them….” (2:187)
Another Verse state that:
وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
And those who pray, “Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be a source of comfort/happiness/consolation, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous.” (25:74)
Zaboor is the book of Psalms in Old Testament. At one time, it was also a title for the Kethubim or third division of the Hebrew Bible.
Zaboor was transferred to different Prophets after dawood. Suleiman and then yunus. Prophet Isa Masih himself used Zaboor to understand Injeel. To teach his followers, he said:
“This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses,the Prophets and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:44-45
Prayer for Happy Marriage:
“God will not deliver him.” “Selah” But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. “Selah” I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side. Psalm 3:2–6
It says that Oh God protect me and my husband from the fear of enemy’s evil schemes which can divide us.
BIBLE / INJEEL.
Bible which is today is not the same as God sent it. It is book that has been lost to the world. Verses on marriage in bible:
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrews 13:4
“Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.”Ecclesiastes 9:9
“Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”Ephesians 4:2-3
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:9
“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 15:12-16
Jesus said to his disciples:
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command you.
I no longer call you slaves,
because a slave does not know what his master is doing.
I have called you friends,
because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you
and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain,
so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.”
The Gospel of the Lord.
Torah is the Old Testament of Bible. Matters relating relationships and marriage are discussed in Talmud.
A husband is responsible for providing his wife with food, clothing and sexual relations(Ex. 21:10)
Kiddushin 1:1 specifies that a woman is acquired (i.e., to be a wife) in three ways: through money, a contract, and sexual intercourse.
Prayers have the power to place a person from bottom to the top right there. Holy books show us the right way to ask for the wishes to be fulfilled with best use of words. So it should be the priority of every single human on Earth to recite verses from religious books and ask for help from God in every sphere of life be it marriage, business, education or any !😊
