.Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans]

Tafseer of Surah Al Rum (The Romans) Ayat 21. And among His Signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. This refers to the wonderful mystery of sex. Children arise out of the union of the sexes. And it is always the female sex that brings forth the offspring, whether female or male. And the father is as necessary as the mother for bringing forth daughters. Unregenerate man is pugnacious in the male sex, but rest and tranquility are found in the normal relations of a father and mother dwelling together and bringing up a family. A man’s chivalry to the opposite sex is natural and God-given. The friendship of two men between each other is quite different in quality and temper from the feeling which un spoilt nature expects as between men and women. There is a special kind of love and tenderness between them. And as woman is the weaker vessel that tenderness may from a certain aspect be likened to mercy, the protecting kindness which the strong should give to the weak (see also 4:1).
