0 What The Quran says about Marriage


  • 2:221 "Wed not idolatresses till they believe; for lo! a believing bondwoman is better than an idolatress though she please you; and give not your daughters in marriage to idolaters till they believe, for lo! a believing slave is better than an idolater though he please you. These invite unto the Fire."

  • 2:223 "Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will."

  • 4:3 "Marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four."

  • 4:15 "Women who are guilty of lewdness ... confine them to the houses until death take them."

  • 4:20 "And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another...."

  • 4:24 "And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess."

  • 4:34 "Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them."

  • 64:14-15 "O ye who believe! Lo! among your wives ... there are enemies for you, therefor beware of them."
