Islam considers marriage as the most intimate communion between man and woman. The mystery of sex finds it fulfillment when intimate spiritual harmony is combined with the physical link. The well being of the society must depend on the well-being and soundness of the families which make up the society. Marriage and family laws are, therefore, an important part of Islamic Law for the fulfillment of its ultimate objective of building a harmonious and peaceful human society. In his inimitable style, Imam Ghazali discusses this subject in this small book, and shows how Islam, despite differences in rules of marriage, set out inviolable principles so that marriage is not distorted by godless understandings.
