Human nature

It is human's natural inclination to Procreate, to be attracted to the opposite gender, to get married.

Islam agrees with a human's nature. Islam is well known as the {Natural religion}. Islam agrees with your body, mind and soul.

On the other hand, in Christianity, the unnatural act of staying unmarried is Commended in the Gospel.

Here we will compare what the Qur'an and the modern Gospel teach about marriage:

Paul in the Bible Commends Celibacy:

1 Cor 7:1b"It is good for a man not to touch a woman. "

1 Cor 7:7-8"Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am."

1 Cor 7:27b"Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife. "

1 Cor 7:28b"Those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this." (also) 1 Tim 4:1-3

The Qur'an teaches:

" Marry those among you who are single, or the virtuous ones among yourselves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah encompasseth all, and he knoweth all things." {Qur'an translation 24:32}

"This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book, revealed before your time,- when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good)." {Qur'an translation 5:5}

In fact, there are Hadeeths which further strongly encourage Marriage in Islam.

In conclusion, the very holy people in the Christian religion such as Priests and Nuns, unnaturally do not marry [there are exceptions, I have seen homosexual married priests, the statement is meant in general]. While the very holy people in Islam Naturally marry.

Islam agrees with how God made you.
