Marriage: Verses from the Quran
This compilation contains a list of Quranic verses relevant to marriage:
I seek refuge in GOD, from Satan the rejected
In the name of GOD, Most Gracious and Most Merciful
(sub-title) Do Not Marry Idol Worshipers
[2:221] Do not marry idolatresses unless they believe; a believing woman is
better than an idolatress, even if you like her. Nor shall you give your daughters
in marriage to idolatrous men, unless they believe. A believing man .is better
than an idolater, even if you like him. These invite to Hell, while GOD invites
to Paradise and forgiveness, as He wills. He clarifies His revelations for the
people, that they may take heed.
[4:21] How could you take it back, after you have been intimate with each other,
and they had taken from you a solemn pledge?
(sub-title) Respect for the Father
[4:22] Do not marry the women who were previously married to your fathers -
existing marriages are exempted and shall not be broken - for it is a gross
offense, and an abominable act.
(sub-title) Incest Forbidden
[4:23] Prohibited for you (in marriage) are your mothers, your daughters, your
sisters, the sisters of your fathers, the sisters of your mothers, the daughters
of your brother, the daughters of your sister, your nursing mothers, the girls
who nursed from the same woman as you, the mothers of your wives, the daughters
of your wives with whom you .have consummated the marriage - if the marriage
has not .been consummated, you may marry the daughter. Also prohibited for you
are the women who were married to your genetic sons. Also, you shall not be
married to two sisters at the same time - but do not break up existing marriages.
GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
(sub-title) Mutual Attraction And Dowry Required
[4:24] Also prohibited are the women who are already married, unless they flee
their disbelieving husbands who are at war with you.* These are GOD's commandments
to you. All other categories are permitted for you in marriage, so long as you
pay them their due dowries. You shall maintain your morality, by not committing
adultery. Thus, whoever you like among them, you shall pay them the dowry decreed
for them. You commit no error by mutually agreeing to any adjustments to the
dowry. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.
(footnote) *4:24 If believing women flee their disbelieving husbands who
are at war with the believers, they do not have to obtain a divorce before remarriage.
[4:25] Those among you who cannot afford to marry free believing women, may
marry believing slave women. GOD knows best about your belief, and you are equal
to one another, as far as belief is concerned. You shall obtain permission from
their guardians before you marry them, and pay them their due dowry equitably.
They shall maintain moral behavior, by not committing adultery, or having secret
lovers. Once they are freed through marriage, if they .commit adultery, their
punishment shall be half of that .for the free women.* Marrying a slave shall
be a last .resort for those unable to wait. To be patient is better for you.
GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. .
(sub-title) Encourage Marriage to Discourage Immorality
[24:32] You shall encourage those of you who are single to get married. They
may marry the righteous among your male and female servants, if they are poor.
GOD will enrich them from His grace. GOD is Bounteous, Knower.
[25:74] And they say, "Our Lord, let our spouses and children be a source
of joy for us, and keep us in the forefront of the righteous."
[40:8] "Our Lord, and admit them into the gardens of Eden that You promised
for them and for the righteous among their parents, spouses, and children. You
are the Almighty, Most Wise.
[30:21] Among His proofs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves,
in order to have tranquility and contentment with each other, and He placed
in your hearts love and care towards your spouses. In this, there are sufficient
proofs for people who think.
[5:5] Today, all good food is made lawful for you. The food of the people of
the scripture is lawful for you. Also, you may marry the chaste women among
the believers, as well as the chaste women among the followers of previous scripture,
provided you pay them their due dowries. You shall maintain chastity, not committing
adultery, nor taking secret lovers. Anyone who rejects faith, all his work will
be in vain, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.
(sub-title) Today's Christianity Not Jesus' Religion*
[5:72] Pagans indeed are those who say that GOD is the Messiah, .son of
Mary. The Messiah himself said, "O Children of .Israel, you shall worship
GOD; my Lord* and your Lord." .Anyone who sets up any idol beside GOD,
GOD has forbidden Paradise for him, and his destiny is Hell. The wicked .have
(footnote) *5:72-76 In John 20:17, we see that Jesus taught that he was
neither God, nor the son of God. Many theologians . have concluded, after careful
research, that today's Christianity is not the same Christianity taught by Jesus.
Two outstanding books on this subject are ``The Myth of God Incarnate'' (The
Westminster Press, Philadelphia, 1977) and The ``Mythmaker'' (Harper & Row,
New York, 1986). On the front jacket of ``The Mythmaker''. we read the following
statement: ".Hyam Maccoby presents new arguments to support the view that
Paul, not. Jesus, was the founder of Christianity it was Paul alone who created
a new religion through his vision of Jesus as a divine Saviour who died to save
[5:73] Pagans indeed are those who say that GOD is a third of a trinity. There
is no god except the one god. Unless they refrain from saying this, those who
disbelieve among them will incur a painful retribution.
[5:74] Would they not repent to GOD, and ask His forgiveness? .GOD is Forgiver,
[4:4] You shall give the women their due dowries, equitably. If they willingly
forfeit anything, then you may accept it; it is rightfully yours.
[28:27] He said, "I wish to offer one of my two daughters for you to marry,
in return for working for me for eight pilgrimages; if you make them ten, it
will be voluntary on your part. I do not wish to make this matter too difficult
for you. You will find me, GOD willing, righteous."
