Getting our daughters married with dignity & pride
Due to the rise in poverty in Pakistan, poor parents cannot afford to get their daughters married with dignity and pride and thus, allow their daughters to fulfil this crucial rite.
Marriage is a moral safeguard as well as a social building block.
Through marriage, families are established and the family is considered to be the fundamental unit of society in Pakistan.
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said that:
Marriage is my tradition whosoever keeps away from it is not from amongst us.
The Prophet ﷺ also enjoined people to marry and said:
When one marries, they have fulfilled half of their religion, so let them fear God regarding the remaining half.
