Is marriage one of the actions of this world or of the Hereafter?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is marriage one of the actions of the Hereafter or one of the actions of this world which are solely for enjoyment?

Praise be to Allaah.
If the aim is to obey Allaah, to follow the example of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), to have a righteous child, to keep oneself chaste and to protect one’s private parts, eyes and heart, etc., then it is one of the actions of the Hereafter and a person will be rewarded for it. If there is no such intention, then it is permissible and is one of the actions of this world which is solely for enjoyment. It will not be rewarded, but there is no sin involved. And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
