Muslim Wedding Gifts
Are you attending a wedding with no idea about what to gift the couple? Are you bored of traditional gifting options like presenting a set of teacups, garments, jewelry, or if nothing else, cash? How about giving the couple something that relates to marriage and love, something they would cherish always and even decorate their walls? We are referring to presenting a gift that has some Islamic value to it. If you are searching for Islamic wedding gifts, especially creativeIslamic wedding gifts, you would find exquisite, often personalized, wedding calligraphy gifts, with a marriage-specific ayat from the Glorious Quran written or painted diligently for the bride and the groom.
Marriage is a life-changing event, one that has a profound, deep impact on our emotional well being. Our happiness, indeed our quality of life, largely depends on the state of our marriage. We can either draw comfort and joy from it or be deprived of the same. To ensure the success of a marriage, one needs to follow the Quranic instructions as mentioned below:
“They (your wives) are a garment for you and you too are a garment for them.”
– Surah Al Baqarah, Verse187
A garment is a layer that we put on us so that it can shield our physical self including injuries or marks. It also forms a barrier against cold, heat, dust, grime, even enemies. By analogy, a husband and wife should protect each other and cover one another’s demerits from the world.
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them, and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.”
– Surah Al-Rum, Verse 21
In a world that’s replete with stress, a man and a wife should offer one another strength and peace. Allah provides Divine Help by filling in the hearts of spouse with love and compassion for each other.
‘And We created you in pairs.’
– Surah Al-Naba, Verse 8.
Certainly, uniting with the other half of your pair is a niyamat, a blessing, and one must cherish or value the blessing by being good and dutiful to that other half.
If any of aforementioned three verses of the Majestic Quran are written or painted or printed in a calligraphic style on canvas or fine art paper or even a plate or mug, they would make for a very intelligent, heartfelt and wonderful gift for a newlywed couple or even a couple marking their marriage anniversary. A husband or wife can also gift it to each other. The ayatscan even be etched or engraved in wood or glass or any appropriate material. Most certainly, such Islamic wedding gifts are indeed the most creativeIslamic wedding gifts that a guest or well-wisher can present to a couple, as they can be a reminder to the husband and wide of the blessing of marriage that Allah the Most, the Gracious has bestowed them with.
