Religion and marriage

Q: An argument I hear of Atheists and non muslims is that religion and Islam also say that sexual pleasure is only allowed within the bonds of marriage, however the rebuttle that they mention is that marriage existed before religion came. What is the answer for this question?


A: This is incorrect. Religion existed before marriage.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
