INTRODUCTION 

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, most Merciful. This research intends to discuss on the significance and importance of marriage to the youth in the contemporary time. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was a leader of the divine path, honest and sincerity. He was trustful and trustworthy. These few qualities and qualifications were some of the exceptional tools bestowed to the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (S.A.W). As a Messenger of Allah, Qur’an clearly places the deliverance of all that Allah (the most high) revealed to him as an obligatory duty.

Therefore, his mode of life is worth emulation and a best sample to the whole world. He invited people to believe in Allah. He was mentally aware of the existence of Allah and was always prepared to follow His path. He never changed in his character or nature. In confirmation of these characteristics of the Prophet (S.A.W), the Qur’an says: (It is the practice of those) who preach the messages of God, and fear Him, and fear none but God. And enough is God to call (men) to account.

One of the social institutions brought by the religion of Islam, is the institution of “marriage”. When the religion prohibits illegal sexual relation, it makes a provision for marriage. Hence, a believer can marry up to four (4) wives at a time. As an exception however the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (S.A.W) married more than four wives. He married a total number of eleven (11) wives in his life time, out of which only nine (9) survived with him. As the permission was divinely granted, there must be great wisdom as well as significance of marriage in the life of the Muslim Ummah.
