وَمِنْ ءايَـتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَجاً لِّتَسْكُنُواْ إِلَيْهَا
وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِى ذَلِكَ لأَيَـتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
And among His signs is this that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. [30:21]
Allah tells us between the verses of 20 to 25 in this beautiful chapter of Surah Ar-Rum some of the amazing signs which speak of His might and power. Out of Allah's perfect mercy, He has created women to complement men and create such a wonderful harmony between the two that each is a perfect counterpart of the other.
Last weekend marked another significant and emotional event for my family. Azmir bin Hj Mohamed Salleh, fondly known among us as Pakcik, has finally tied the knot with the love of his life, Sharifah Nor Asilah bt Syed Basir.
I personally find this occasion emotional as I am instantly reminded of a person who wasn't there during the weekend but is surely in the thoughts of Pakcik, and all of us.
That person is Arwah Wan.
Arwah Wan must be so proud and happy for Pakcik now that he has finally met his partner in life. May Allah reward arwah Wan with Jannah, biiznillah.
To Pakcik, congratulations, and the Sunnah for wishing every recently married couple is :
بَارَكَ اللهُ لَكَ وَبَارَكَ عَلَيْكَ وَجَمَعَ بَيْنَكُمَا فِي خَيْرٍ
May Allah bless for you, and may He bless on you, and combine both of you in good (works). [Sunan Abu Daud, no.2130]
p/s: I'll be joining the celebration soon, insya Allah. Not too looking forward with the idea of being the best man though. Kena jadi jugak lagi ke? =(
