Recipe for a Blissful Marriage



  • Piety (obedience and fear of Allāh).
  • Mubārak Sunnāh of Nabi Muhammad (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam)
  • Love
  • Loyalty
  • Understanding
  • Friendship
  • Contentedness
  • Forbearance
  • Intimacy
  • Affection
  • Smiles
  • Compliments
  • Forgiveness
  • Gifts
  • Pleasant Surprises
  • Fragrances
  • Last, but not least, Zikr, Du’ās and Sadaqāh


  • To the combination of piety (obedience and fear of Allāh) and Sunnāh, add a lavish amount of love blended together with loyalty.
  • Stir the mixture well with a spoon of friendship and understanding.
  • To get the maximum flavour from your dish, season it well with contentedness and forbearance.
  • Heat the mixture gently with the warmth of intimacy and affection. Remember, this heating has to be consistent and continuous, never let this dish cool down.
  • Keep on adding constantly to the dish a mixture of smiles, compliments, Salāms and warm welcomes, all blended with sincerity and trustworthiness.
  • To make the dish more pleasant and spicy, add humour to it (within the Shariāh).
  • Sprinkle the dish with a mixture of occasional gifts and some pleasant surprises.
  • Garnish it with forgiveness.
  • This dish has to be prepared by both, the husband as well as the wife, and also, it has to be served and devoured in each other’s sweet company.
  • To retain the freshness of the dish put on sweet fragrances. This would also make your married life even more sparkling and tempting.
  • While the dish is being prepared do not forget a few very special ingredients: Zikr of Allāh (plus Durood on Nabi Muhammad Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam and Istighfār] and also Du’ās. Without Allāh’s Help and Mercy no true success can be achieved. Also, remember to give Sadaqāh on regular basis to have Barakāh in your married life.


  • A number of spouses add some unworthy ingredients that make the dish bland, tasteless or even bitter. Some of these ingredients are anger, shouting, unkind words, swearing and sarcasm.
  • The ingredients of late-nights, bad character, pornography and infidelity can bring the dish to the very brink of turning sour.
  • The most dangerous thing in a marriage, however, is the utterance of the word ‘Divorce’. It can actually act as a ‘poison’ for this dish. Islām disapproves of divorce and in this connection it has cautioned its followers to be very careful.


For the husband:

Abu Hurairāh Radhiyallāhu ‘Anhu narrates that Rasulullāh Sallallāhu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam said:

“The most perfect amongst the believers in faith is one who has the best manners; and best of you are those who are best to their wives.”(Musnad Ahmad)

For the wife:

Sayyidātunā Ummu Salamāh Radhiyallāhu ‘Anhā says that Rasulullāh Sallallāhu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam said:

“A woman who dies when her husband is pleased with her, will enter Jannāh.”


Allāh Ta’ālā Knows Best.
