The Family Relationship in Islam
To Muslims, Islam is the code of life which God has revealed for the guidance of mankind. In Islam there is complete coordination of the spiritual and material aspects of human life. Hence Islam does not concern itself with matters pertaining to the next world alone, but also with the world in which we live. The Qur'an, which is the word of God to Muslims, deals with all aspects of man's life in this world as well as in the Hereafter. It deals not
only with the ways of devotion and the forms of worship, but also with the problems of the world around us, with questions pertaining to relations between man and man, institution of marriage, divorce and inheritance, etc.
