What gift do you usually give to a bride and groom on their wedding? A glassware set? Some cash? Or jewellery? How about gifting them a verse from the Quran inscribed in beautiful calligraphy which they can frame and display in their new home? Did you know that the Quran is full of advice for couples on how to lead a happy married life?
Allah says in Verse 21, Surah Al-Rum: “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.” From the above verse, it is clear that a husband and wife need to be source of peace, tranquillity and solace for each other, and Allah aids them in this journey by placing between them “affection and mercy”.
In Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 187, Allah says, “They (your wives) are a garment for you and you too are a garment for them.” As a garment shields us from heat, cold, dust, and grime, keeps us warm, and covers our physical injuries or defects, a husband and wife must protect each other, provide each other warmth and joy, and hide each other’s weaknesses from the society. Marriage is indeed a blessing, one of the greatest gifts from Allah. The Almighty says in the Quran (Surah A-Naba, Verse 8): ‘And We created you in pairs.’
We, at Baradari, bring you to a range of artworks with the above verses written in beautiful calligraphy. We believe this is indeed a wonderful gift for newlywed couples. Once framed and displayed on the wall or on the shelf, it can serve as a handy reminder about the blessing of marriage. It can also be given as a gift to a couple on their wedding anniversary. If your parents are celebrating their 25th or 50th wedding anniversary, or friends are marking their 10th wedding anniversary, they would surely love this gift.
What’s more, we will personalise these gifts for you by writing the name of the husband and the wife too. Just select the design you want and email us the names of the man and the woman on email@example.com, and we will deliver it to you!
