5 Essential Elements of a Prosperous and Long-Lasting Marriage

Our Creator, Allah has given us an ideal portrait in the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) to help break routine in life.

Islam gives us the following 5 elements that are essential to help rekindle our relationships.

1. Smile Often

The Prophet used to smile often. So much so that the sahaba would say They never watched anyone smile over him.

A simple smile can sometimes be very powerful in making a relationship strong.

Dear Husband or Wife; we all have long and strenuous days. Rather than bombarding your spouse with complaints on first sight, then engage them with a smiling face.

The Prophet also told us that easy smile is an act of charity.

2. Say Sweet things

Prophet Muhammad would say:

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment permit them Say good or keep silent."

It's very simple to nitpick at our spouses. We are about each Other the time.

Rather than searching out flaws, point outside qualities.

Try to make it a new daily habit of complimenting your spouse.

3. Don't Get Carried Away by Anger

When Ali married Fatimah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) Gave him amazing words of information.

Advice so significant that the Prophet repeated it three times:

"Don't get Angry".

He did not tell him restrain you anger, but rather do not become mad in the first location.

We get angry at our partners for the silliest things, from The way they squeeze the toothpaste bottle to how they wash the dishes.

Chill out. Instead, smile and say something sweet.

4. Go Out Together

The Prophet would spend quality time together with his spouse.

He did not live a separate life under the same roof.

He would go on walks with his wife, travel with his wife, And seek her advice. He would participate in stimulating conversation.

When was the last time you took spouse out for a nice dinner (not speaking about curry in a hurry) or went outside for a cup of coffee?

5. Say "I Love You"

The Messenger of Allah was not afraid to profess his love [].

Our religion is built on it as Allah states:

"My love is guaranteed for 2 who adore one another for My sake".

He'd frequently speak of the Fantastic affection he had for his wife Khadijah.

"Her love was given to me as Rizq" he was quoted as saying.

You are likely unable to remember the last time you said it to our partner. That is not recommended in Islam.


So there you have it:

Smile, Say Something Sweet, Don't Get Angry, Go Out and Say " I Love you" -- remember and practice.
