POEM: What Makes A Blessed Marriage [Acrostic Poetry]

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Marriage in Islam is when a wife and her husband:

Meet on the same road to help one another
Achieve similar goals, and love each other,
Recognize sweet features shared between the two,
Remember the good deeds they both used to do,
Inspire each other to be better Muslims,
Ambitious on the path that leads to Heaven,
Guiding one another to Allah's Straight Way,
Eager for Allah's love, blessed each night and day.
What makes a blessed marriage?

[Righteous Muslim wife + Muslim husband]
[Muslim wife + Righteous Muslim husband]
[Righteous Muslim wife + Righteous Muslim husband] = blessed marriage

Allah's Noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam taught us that a man can marry a woman for her beauty, wealth, lineage or family status while emphasizing that if one marries a righteous Muslim woman who truly loves Allah then that Muslim made a better choice, and is more fortunate than he who marries a woman primarily for her outer looks.
Tips for a blessed marriage:

Marry your spouse sincerely to please Allah.
Avoid Bid'ah. Stick to the Prophet's Sunnah [SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam].
Realize none is perfect. Forgive always.
Recall sweet memories. Love. Appreciate.
Inspire each other to do good. Guide and share.
Accept each other. For each other be there.
Give each other gifts, lessons, quality time -
Earnestly stay loyal. Make your love sublime.

Note: A Muslim is allowed to marry up to four wives, and for a man to have a wife who is okay with that is a blessing from Allah Almighty. Among the best gifts a wife can give her only husband, besides sharing her faith and Islamic knowledge, are her loyalty and loving him unconditionally for Allah's sake. Keep learning more about Islam, as arrogance and ignorance are unattractive qualities which God Allah does not like :) || Some Questions And Answers
