Home Family Matters Marriage It’s no Secret

It’s no Secret


The marriage of a boy and girl is to be publicly announced. It is not something to be conducted quietly and secretly. It is extremely tragic that nowadays the adultery of people is publicised and the nikaahs are concealed.

That marriage which is conducted secretly is treated very lightly since it does not seem to carry the actual responsibility of a marriage. A couple that has come together by means of a secret marriage may very easily end off their marriage at any time, since there is no fear of having to face the public. Thus marriage becomes a play thing, a conveyance of convenience for the mere satisfaction of one’s desires. Furthermore it lacks blessings, which is one of the most fundamental ingredients of a happy marriage. It is also against the spirit of deen, which emphasises the announcement of the nikaah.
