Man constantly searches for peace of mind, satisfaction and inner-happiness. While some search for it in wealth and romance, others try to acquire it through sport and amusement, and yet others seek it through travelling the world and frequenting five-star holiday resorts. Generally, newly-wed couples, in the aim of strengthening their bond of love and companionship, explore different avenues of excitement. Hence, booking into holiday resorts or even travelling overseas for one’s honeymoon has become the norm.

It should be borne in mind that the union of nikah has been created by Allah Ta‘ala to serve as the means of providing man with peace, tranquility and inner happiness. In order for this union to serve its purpose, it is imperative for the couple to secure the blessings of the nikah. The blessings of the nikah will only be achieved when one leads a pure and clean life in total conformity to the Mubaarak Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). It is not reported in the Ahaadith that the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) would go on honeymoon trips after nikaah. Rather, they aimed to engender love among themselves through fulfilling the rights of the nikaah and enlivening the Mubaarak Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) within their lives. Hence, one understands that these norms and trends are new innovations which have been adopted from the western culture. Often, such honeymoons become the cause for the barakah of the nikah being totally lost on account of the evil and sinful environment in which the couple is present.
