Marriage is for a lifetime, not just for life. This is the reality of marriage from an Islamic perspective. It's not just about procreation. It's about a union that lasts the span of a lifetime. Just like Pamela, the union between the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and Khadija Radi Allahu Anhu. That even after she passed away, he would hear the voice of her friend And subhanAllah he would recollect the motions that were attached to Khadija probably Allah one. That's a marriage for a lifetime. Right? That's a marriage in which when one party passes away, the other lives upon the Sunnah for the sake of Allah to be the best that they can be yearning to be reunited with the party

00:00:55--> 00:01:33

that passed away in the Hereafter. This is the reality of the Muslim marriage, the Muslim union, the Muslim family, it's far more substantial Brothers and Sisters in Islam, and it has to be because after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There's no other prophet, there's no other messenger. The solution to mankind is the amount Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because collectively that OMA carries the legacy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we know that an ummah is nothing but a makeup of families. And a family starts with a union between a man and a woman. If that is substantial, it has a domino effect in terms of substantiality raising substantial children building

00:01:33--> 00:02:16

substantial communities, which make up a substantial Amma. No doubt this OMA is one that has to be substantial because this is the Ummah that was sent to give them not to take. It is the solution for humanity. This OMA is the ummah of inviting towards good and being advocates against evil. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says warming, Aya tea and Holika Allah comin and fusi come as virgin Lita school illallah wa Jalla, wa ala Kuma datawalk Rama in Nephi Delica Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, from the signs of Allah, from the signs of Allah's existence, and that He is the Creator, the maker, the Sustainer, and he is one in His Lordship and the only one

00:02:16--> 00:03:03

worthy of worship so he's one in his worship, which means he's one in his names and qualities and attributes. Subhana who attack from the signs that teach us this is that he created from us our partner, Peter school Elena, so that we may seek contentment from her and she may seek her contentment from him. And this contentment formulates the base for everything substantial people upon Allah places between them love and mercy. So it's God given panela when it's done, right. What is done upon the Sunnah, when it's done with the correct paradigms, when people are in it, but selfishly but selflessly, Allah has in it, a divine blessing, love and mercy manifested love. But

00:03:03--> 00:03:40

just love that you have in the heart, that it's a love, which the other party feels and experiences, when she's with you. She experiences it when you are with her, you experience it, you experience it and how she maintains your home. She experiences it in how you maintain your relationship with her. And you both experience it in how the children are raised and how she is with her in laws and how you are with your in laws and so on and so forth. And some of the scholars have said mercy here refers to the children of that marriage. Yes, the children can be a mess if there is substantially as well because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, levena Ahmed, what about whom? Do RIA to whom be

00:03:40--> 00:04:17

Iman and how can I be him to reata mama, let me know whom Mina Amerindian Sheikh, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, As for those who believe, and the children follow them in faith, they raise their children well, so they possibly as Muslims as well, Allah will bring the family together in the highest paradise as the scholars of tafsir explain the stress, that is the children at a higher level of Paradise and the parents at a lower level of Paradise and the children will be a mercy to those parents for Allah will raise the parents to that higher level in paradise, so they can be together a family in Ghana, as they were a family for the sake of Allah. And so this is a Brothers

00:04:17--> 00:04:56

and Sisters in Islam. Let's just go a little bit back and focus on this point in which Allah subhana who were to Elena said, Be to school Illya see contentment from as she seeks contentment from you, because Marriage is a union, right? So we understand it holistically. What does this contentment really mean? It means that together, you become a means of worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala in a greater way of building your agenda in a way that you couldn't have you not been together with each other. Because this is where contentment is Brothers and Sisters in Islam contentment is in living in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala for Allah says Allah the victory layer he talked to my

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Engel Pulu it is through living in the remembrance of Allah wa

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

The hearts find the enemy and finds its contentment and serenity and peace and solace. That's where it is when both parties are in this marriage for the sake of Allah alone, and they are a means for each other to build gender because both understand that from our time on earth from the time we born to the time we pass away, we are in a Jana building exercise and we're going to continue building gender but in a way that we couldn't do before. Had we been in a relationship before the Nika we would be burning our Jana and building our gender. But through Nika, we build gender together this act Subhanallah that we can build gender through that we could never do, except if we were met.

00:05:37--> 00:06:13

Pamela, that's a whole long discussion, but just to keep focused on on the idea so we don't lose track this concept of solace and serenity and contentment. It's for living in the remembrance of Allah and living in the remembrance of Allah doesn't just mean that you know, you keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala that means that but it means more it means living in a way through which you understand that your purpose through which you do things and for which you do things is Allah subhanahu attack, even marriage, for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala to celebrate, to be a sign from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala being one in His

00:06:13--> 00:06:44

Lordship, in his worship, in his names and attributes and so on and so forth. You make Allah your purpose for everything that you do, thus you live in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you weren't married, you couldn't build gender likeness, and like this, they are together for the sake of Allah in the remembrance of Allah and thus they receive contentment from each other for each other. And that's a marriage that is built for a lifetime and not just for life. So you become closer together, making Allah subhanho wa Taala The purpose for everything that you do living for his sake alone upon the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah bless our

00:06:44--> 00:06:58

marriages, bless a spouse as well as Canada and bless us to raise substantial children and create substantial communities so that we play our part in building a substantial Ummah, the Umbach Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
