Abstract

Marriage ideally should be a meaningful relationship, but in reality it is not the same. Modern society is questioning marriage that make them confronts dilemma which weaken social responsibility and family ties which, then, susceptible to domestic violence and even ended by divorce. This dilemma lead modern society seek for happiness outside marriage by choosing alternative of marriage; cohabitation, gay-parent family, or staying single (celibacy). The problem is modern society fail to find the meaningful relationship inside marriage. They fulfill material needs but fail fulfilling spiritual needs. This study is qualitative research which uses literature approach by focusing on the study of al-Gazālī’s thought about the virtue of marriage in tas}awwuf perspective. The datas is analyzed using content analysis approach to reveal the content of al-Gazālī’s books. The virtue of marriage is the ethical significant of what lies behind the order of marriage. The virtue of marriage is that it is one of abstinence (riyād{ah an-nafs), it is done when fasting and restraining sight cannot curb sexual desire anymore. it is a necessary virtue for the conduct of spiritual exercises leading to union with God. Another virtue of marriage is that it is an act of devotion (‘ibādah). It said so because there are many benefits (maslahah) inside marriage. Besides it can safeguard self from sinning if sight and adultery, it also beneficial in perpetuating mankind conform to the love of God. Al-Gazālī also mentioned that the prayers of children profit their parents when the latter are dead, and children who die before their parents intercede for them on the Day of Judgment. The virtue of marriage, in fact, can overcome the dilemma of modern society. The matrimonial alternative (celibacy, cohabitation and gay-parent family) will not give happiness like what they want particularly cohabitation and being gay, it is forbidden by Islamic teaching because it gives great disaster, even bigger. The spouse should review their intention and commitment on marriage. Their intention is ideally to worship Allah and running his household with true commitment to perpetuating his marriage by behaving good and fulfilling each all rights and duties. It helps the spouse to overcome their crisis (being aid for their mental in coping marriage problem that may arise) and making marriage stay balance, so that they can achieve the meaningful marriage.
