Of course, in this case, it is a match in a good way, don’t match someone who already had a partner. If you did it, it will certainly be the way of the world’s sin in the end. Well, here are 15 Rewards of Matching Others in Islam if done in a good way according to Islamic Shari’a.
- The Reward Keeps Someone Away from Bad Divinity
“O young people, who among you who are able to bear a living should he, marry because marriage will lower your eyes and keep your genitals. While those who cannot, he should fast, because it can be a shield of lust for him.” (Narrated by Bukhari 5065 and Muslim 1400)
- Opening the Path of Sustenance for Others
“Marry those who are single among you and good people from your male and female slaves. If they are poor, Allah will provide them with sufficient grace. Allah is Extensive and Knowledgeable.” (Surah an-Nur: 32). Marrying is certainly the way to get halal sustenance and to build a happy family according to Islam by pairing, so you also play a role in both partners to get halal sustenance.
- Giving Happiness to Others
“Do not (the trustees) prevent them from remarrying with their future husbands if there has been willingness between them in a frank way.” (Surah al-Baqarah: 232). Of course, people who are married will be happy because they have a partner throughout their lives from matchmaking, so you play a role in the happiness of the two couples according to the verses of the Qur’an about making people happy.
- Prevent Slander
“When it comes to you people who have morality and religion, then marry him, if not, there will be a slander on the face of the Earth and extensive damage.” (Narrated by Turmudzi 1107 and al-Albani). The relationship that is lived without clarity is certainly a slander in Islam, for example, someone who has feelings for others but not dare to express, then if someone else knows, it can go sideways. With matchmaking, it will be known how the feelings between the two people are so that they can be united in a lawful way.
- Reward Helping Others
“Do help in kindness and piety.” (Surah al-Maidah: 2). Every good deed will results to a reward included you who help to match two single people.

And every nymph is in the palace made of pearls and yaqut, for each step of his foot and the sentence he says (when he wants to match, marry off) is written for him a year of worship services which are used for qiyamul lail while the afternoon is used for fasting.”
- The Reward of Doing the Best Help
Having told by Hisham ibn Ammar, told by Mu’awiyah ibn Yahya, had told by Mu’awiyah ibn Yazid of Yazid bin Abu Habib of Abul Khair of Abu Ruhm he said, “The Prophet Sallallaahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam said: The best is to match two people (a man and a woman) in marriage.” (Ibn Majah)
- Reward Choosing the Best Pair
From Jabir r.a., the Prophet said, “Indeed, the woman was married because of her religion, position, wealth, and beauty, then choose a religious one.” (Narrated by Muslim and Tirmidzi). Of course, when pairing a friend, you will choose the best one who is most likely to have morals and the compatibility of both, so you also have a big reward because you have helped someone get the best partner.
- Reward Gives the Way to Run the Sunnah of the Prophet
Of course, the Sunnah of the Prophet is one of them is married where if done because of his religion it will be the way of happiness in the world, for friends who match with that intention also get rewarded for giving other people’s mate because of their religion. The Prophet said, “Women are married for four things; his wealth, his character, his beauty, and his religion. Hold the religious case, so you will be lucky.” (Ibn Majah)
- Road to Charity
In choosing a mate, of course, you are prioritized in morality. You will also get a reward if you pair a partner with noble intentions, because both of them have good morals, “Do not marry a woman because of her beauty. Maybe beauty makes you despicable. Do not marry a woman because of her wealth/throne. Maybe the treasure/throne makes you exceed the limit. Instead, marry a woman because of her religion. A pious slave girl, though her face is bad is more important.” (Narrated by Ibn Majah)
- The Reward of Making Others Far From Loneliness
Al-Baqarah: 112 “(Not so) even the one who surrenders himself to God, while he is doing good, then for him the reward of his Lord and there is no concern for them and they (also) do not grieve.” Of course, when they give happiness to others by keeping away from loneliness because they have found a mate, God will also give happiness to people who do that kindness so that the person is far from the pain and sadness of the world and the hereafter.
- Reward Gives a Good Way of Intercourse
Of course the best association is to marry a friend who has a match so that two people can get along according to Islamic Shari’a – Al-Baqarah: 220 And they ask you about orphans, say: “Managing affairs they are rightly good, and if you associate with them, they are your brothers; and God knows who made the damage from those who made repairs. And if God wills, He can bring trouble to you. Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (Also read: 12 Useful Tips to Change Undesired Habits in Islam).

Ali-Imran: 134 (i.e.) “Those who spend (wealth), both in the field and narrow, and those who hold back their anger and forgive (mistakes) people. God likes those who do good.” Of course, people who use their daily time to do good like matchmaking other people are far better than busy doing damage to other people’s relationships.
- Keeping Others Away from Damage
Al-Ma’idah: 13 “(But) because they broke their promise, We cursed them, and We made their hearts hard petrified. They like to change the words (Allah) of their places, and they (intentionally) forget some of what they have been warned about, and you (Muhammad) will always see their betrayal except a little among them (those who do not betray), then forgive them and leave them alone, verily Allah loves those who do good.” Well, one of the moral damage in the world is certainly adultery. By pairing two human beings to marriage, then you keep them from adultery and damage. (Also read: The Most Destructive Sins in Islam).
- Seen as a Noble Person
Surah Al-Zalzalah Verses 7 and 8 “Whoever does well as little as the good deeds, he will witness the results. Likewise, those who commit bad deeds, no matter how small the bad deeds, will see the results. ”
Matchmaking other people does not always give perfect results, for example, it really fits with what is expected in relation to the type of person you want to be a mate, but friends who match others still have the virtue of being noble because they give way to both unite in the way of God.
