What Islam said about Soul Mate?

Soul Mate In Islam

sharia has guided in choosing a partner. One of them is through the hadith narrated by al-Bukhari. It is mentioned in it that the ideal partner kiriteria is a treasure, beautiful, noble descendant, and strong religion.

At the end of the hadith it is recommended, when a person has difficulty finding a partner who has all four criteria, then at least he has the latter criteria. He’ll be lucky. This is certainly true for the public. Because anyone would want to be lucky and crave an ideal partner.

Although it has been equipped with the four criteria above, but in practice one feels confused and difficult to drop the choice. Especially when faced with several figures of choice, which of those figures deserves to be his partner?

In this case, the Quran has given a number of signals, who is the soul mate or life partner of a person. With that gesture, one will be slightly helped in making his choice.

Especially when faced with several figures of choice, which of those figures deserves to be his partner?

In this case, the Qur’an has given a number of signals, who is the soul mate or life partner of a person. With that gesture, one will be slightly helped in making his choice.

Some of the cues are similarity and harmony. Basically, a person tends to people who have the same traits and circumstances as him.

1. Having Similarity and Equality Basically, a person tends to people who have the same traits and circumstances as him.

This is the case in terms of spouses. This has been hinted at in the Quran:

“Vile women are for vile men, and vile men are for vile women, and good women are for good men, and good men are for good women,” (QS an-Nur [24]: 26).

The similarity of status and chastity in the verse above, is also a cue to other aspects of similarity, such as similarity of habits, traits, professions, hobbies, derivatives, social status, and so on.

No wonder if we often find people who are married with professional friends, officemates, hobby friends, and so on.

More interestingly, in addition to containing the concept of similarity, equality, and harmony, the verse above also encourages anyone who wants to get the best partner, in order to prepare themselves as the best person for the person he wants.

Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

“He has made for you of your own kind,” (QS an-Nur [24]: 28).

2. Bring Peace and Tendency of the Heart

From one or more similarities, it is usually born a sense of fit, a sense of likeness, and a sense of tranquility. Similarly in terms of mates.

So whoever will find a partner and drop the choice, then choose a figure that brings peace, fit, pleasure, understanding, and affection.

Therefore, the signs created by God in his heart, as in the Qur’an:

“And of His signs is that He has created for you wives of your own kind, that you may be comforted by them, and he has made among you affection and affection.”

3. Accepted by family

Basically, marriage not only brings together two people who love each other, but also brings together two large families.

Therefore, the consent of each family should not be ignored.

So, anyone who will continue the relationship to the marriage level, then talk first with the family, especially both parents, including with children if the married widower or widow and has had a sufficiently mature child.

One of the objectives is to avoid problems in the future. Nevertheless, the final choice and consideration goes back to the concerned.

Because too much input often makes someone confused and difficult to step.

Indeed, acceptance from the family in choosing a partner is already hinted at in the Qur’an, “If you do not meet anyone in it, then do not enter until you have permission.

And if it is said to you, “Go back,” then turn back. It is clean for you, and Allah knows what you do.”

4. Expanded The Door of Sustenance

The next cue about one’s soul mate is the spaciousness of sustenance. And when Allah sets his servant in good company, He expands his provision.

“Allah has made for you wives of your own kind, and has made for you wives of yours, children and grandchildren, and provided you with good things.”

Therefore, it is no wonder that we find the sustenance of single people is different from the sustenance of married people.

And those who have not yet had children are different from those who have had children.

In fact, Allah has promised to enable and facilitate someone who has found his soul mate and intends to guard his honor.

“As for the way of course it is up to God. And marry those of you who are single and those who are fit among your male and female slaves. If they are poor Allah will enable them by His grace,” (QS an-Nur [24]: 33).

In other words, if a person’s choice is his soul mate, then God will enable him to marry his choice.
