Marriage in Islam

Marriage in Islam by Nimira DewjiIslam belongs to the monotheistic Abrahamic tradition which includes Christianity and Judaism. Islam embraces not only ethical commands and spiritual teachings but also prescribes a specific code of behaviour for daily living. In personal and social lives, Muslims are required to adhere to a moral code of behaviour prescribed by the Quran, the foundational text for the community (ummah). Muslims believe that the revelations that came to Prophet Muhammad in the form of divine inspiration over twenty-two years are contained in the Quran. The regulations of the Quran defined rights and obligations for men and women with respect to participation in public affairs as well as all aspects of their private lives including marriage and divorce; the regulations assumed a degree of choice for all parties.
