Marriage in Quran has great and holy worth in Islam. The reason is that it helps to spread our religion among the generations and countries. But, let me first explain how Islam, that hanif religion, honors the woman. Allah put the woman in the best position ever. She is the wife, the daughter, and the mother and each job have its rewards. The Quran tells us that women and men are equal because both are created by the only God, Allah. Both of them are required to worship Allah in the same way and both of them have responsibilities and rights in Islam.
“Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.(97)”
Allah told us through his Holy Quran, that our mother Hawwa and our father Adam were created from each other. In addition, there are a lot of verses that prove the importance of treating each other in a good manner. Islam mentioned that women should learn like the lady Fatima the daughter of Muhammed (PBUH). Also, our prophet (PBUH) in his last speech asked all Muslim men to take care of women saying: ” I enjoin you to treat women kindly for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.”
Marriage in Quran
Allah sent us many messages inside about women and marriage in Quran. This partnership is called in Islam the “heavy pack” due to its importance. Allah and his messenger (PBUH) told us all the details we need to marry and create a new beloved Muslim family. Starting from how to choose your partner who must be well mannered ending with how to win the Jannah together.
“And of His Signs is that He has created mates for you from your own kind that you may find peace in them and He has set between you love and mercy. Surely there are Signs in this for those who reflect. (21)”
Allah the great through his ayat put the essential rules to have a successful marriage life. He asked men to protect their wives, love them and treat them gently. They must give women their rights and correct their mistakes kindly. Women also have their duties such as respecting their men and obey them in their good deeds. Both must be loyal to each other and to their family. Allah ordered us to be fair, loving, kind, generous, and sincere.

All Muslims believe that marriage is very substantial in our life to spread our Isalm. For Muslims, it is not just a contract but also considers a promise between two persons to keep each other.

How many marriage accept for one boy in Quran?
Surah An-Nisaa: “If you fear that you might not treat the orphans justly, then marry the women that seem good to you: two, or three, or four. If you fear that you will not be able to treat them justly, then marry (only) one, or marry from among those whom your right hands possess. This will make it more likely that you will avoid injustice. (3)”
According to Islam laws (Sharia), men can marry more than one wife in their lives. A man can marry up to four women if he wants. There are some rules that should be applied to do that and every Muslim must know them first. First of all, the justice between his wives, he must treat all his wives kindly and honestly. He should spend his money and effort equally between his wives and kids. If he can’t be completely fair between them, he must not marry more than one woman.
Surah An-Nisaa: “You will not be able to treat your wives with absolute justice not even when you keenly desire to do so. (It suffices in order to follow the Law of Allah that) you incline not wholly to one, leaving the other in suspense. If you act rightly and remain God-fearing, surely Allah is All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. (129)”
