Is it time to marry?

By Zaki Imtiaz Today at lunch time, I had a small discussion with two of my friends.  We were looking for an answer to the question, "What is the right age to get married?"

Would you like it Blessed or Wretched?

Marriage is a colorful artwork gifted to you by Allah, specially designed for you to find repose in.  It is an institution where real love is nurtured for the family to bask in its warmth and light.  It is the building where the foundation of future is laid in the present.  It is falling in...
