Explanation of Surah 78 verse 8

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In Quran chapter 78 verse 8 it is mentioned that we have made you pairs. Does it refer only to mankind or all the creation and does it have any relation with marriage. Please clarify specifically.


A: In this verse Allah Ta’ala mentions His favours upon man and from among His favours is that He created Insaan in pairs (i.e. male and female). It is through the male and female that Allah Ta’ala causes the human species to multiply.

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