Marriage is a part of life, family as well society. The universality of marriage in different societies and cultures is attributed to the many basic social and personal functions. From the Islamic point of view, marriage is a religious duty, a moral safeguard, and a social commitment.

Islam views it as a strong bond terming by Mithaqun Ghaleez that means a challenging commitment. It is a commitment to the dignified meaning of full survival of the human race. Islam regards marriages as the first and foremost righteous act and an act of responsible devotion.

Islam recognized the religious virtue, the social necessity, and the moral advantages of marriage. Islam considers marriage a very serious commitment; it has prescribed certain measures to make the marital bond as permanent as humanly possible. Marriage in Islam is neither a sacrament nor a simple civil contract; rather marriage in Islam is something unique with very special features of both sacramental and contractual nature.

The aim of his paper is to discuss the marriage institution in the Islamic framework and its roles and significance in current global human society. The paper also tries to present a solution to the problems of family issues in the light of the Quran and Sunnah.

“Allah made for you mates from your own selves and appointed for you children and grandchildren from your mates, and We provided you with all the good things. What, do they believe in falsehood while they deny the blessing of Allah?” (16:72)

“It is He (Allah) who created you from a single soul, and made from it its mate, that he might find comfort with her” (7:189).

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Marriage is my way (Sunnah), Whoever turns away from it is not ‘among my followers.
