man in a manner that he is incomplete and imperfect without
a spouse. Man may upgrade his knowledge, faith and
excellencies, but he shall never reach the desired
perfectness if he does not get a spouse. (Be it man or
woman). Nothing can substitute marriage and the raising of a
family. Male and female sexes need each other both from
spiritual as well as physical points of view. And each of
them is incomplete and imperfect when alone and in solitude.
And when they get placed beside each other, they complete
each other. This is the law of creation and it commands all
The Quran calls
man and woman as the dress of each other.
(wives) are as a dress for you (husbands) and you are as a
dress for them"
Surah Baqara v187
That is to say,
they are the completive, counterpart, and the guard of each
other's honour and secrets, and each one needs the other.
Man can not live honourably and eminently in society without
dress. He feels himself in a state of imperfectness. The
lonely person too feels himself imperfect.
Dress saves and
protects a person from the effects of winter and summer. The
spouse too saves one from worries, futility, shelterlessness,
aimlessness and solitude similarly. Dress decorates man,
spouses too are the decoration of each other.
