Are you looking up Muslim wedding anniversary gifts? Do you want to gift Islamic wedding anniversary gifts to give to Muslim couples in your circle of friends, relatives or colleagues? Or perhaps you’d like to gift to your spouse? In particular if it’s a special anniversary, like the 10th or 25th, for example? For such a special occasion, you, of course, want to go beyond the clothes, jewellery, crockery or cash in hand. You would rather gift something bespoke, which the couple would cherish forever. Something that evokes the essence of marriage and is a reminder to the couple of the values of the institution.
Would you like to present a frame in which the names of the husband and the wife are written below a verse from the Holy Quran, which has instructions for marital bliss.
Marriage, as is well-known, is a composite baggage – bringing with it duties and privileges, hugs and frowns, responsibilities and benefits, comfort and sacrifice. The health of one’s marriage is likely to affect our overall contentment quotient. It comes as no wonder therefore that Allah has specified verses for marriage in the Holy Quran.
In verse no. 21 of Surah Al Room, Allah says: “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.”
Now that Allah has placed between the couple love and mercy, it is now the duty of the man and the woman to cherish this love and mercy and give it to each other for the purpose of marital success, otherwise, marriage would become very tough.
In verse no. 187of Surah Al Baqarah, Allah says, “They (your wives) are a garment for you and you are a garment for them.”Similar to the nearness between the body and the cloth, the two halves of the couple should be close to each other in order to comfortably express their fears, concerns, worries, anxieties and secrets. Similar to a garment’s protection of the body from dust, filth and vagaries of the weather, a couple should protect one another from their foes and nastiness of the world. Similar to a garment hiding our bodies to ensure our dignity and grace, a couple cover -each other’s faults. Similar to agreement adding to our beauty and grace, couple should also add grace to each other. As the word ‘garment’ has been used to describe both husband and wife, it suggests mutual responsibility of both parts of the couple in working towards marital success.
The significance of the marital institution has been amply elucidated clear by Allah. Calligraphy works of a verse from the Glorious Quran that talks of marital relationship would make for beautiful Muslim wedding anniversary gifts, or even a wedding gift. You can add personal value to the gift by writing the names of the bride and the groom below the verse. With this knowledge, your search for an Islamic wedding anniversary gift just got easier.
