movies about love and compatibility. It is human nature that he cannot survive without a
A life partner is someone realistic and trustworthy, with whom you do not have to pretend anything which you are not, and you can truly be yourself, a person with whom you can spend the rest of your life happily. A life partner is somebody who is a reliable companion and a person that you can rely on. A person who enters your life to enrich it. A person with whom you are fully compatible.

What does it mean?
Compatibility implies similarity and equality. In a Hadeeth (Prophetic narration), the Prophet.
"Muslims are equal in their blessedness of life." [Abu Daawood]
The Prophet gave no appreciation to class differences and wealth status, but in a marriage, he strongly emphasizes compatibility. Partners who are marrying must have Kufw (equivalence or equality) of each other so that there are no excessive apprehensions later. It is better for women who are focused on laws and standards to marry a man like themselves.
Compatibility is the first and foremost, and it is considered the foundations of a happy marriage; it is the arrangement of values, choices, and lifestyle among spouses. Compatibility is about closeness, equality, and respect between spouses in terms of morality and religiosity. A good consonance between husband and wife contributes to the success of their marriage. The husband and wife always need to spend some quality time together, have some fun. No matter whether physical, emotional, or intellectual, compatibility is something every married couple should have. Those relationships where compatibility lacks, it causes a very unpleasant situation that leads to conflicts and separation because most people relate compatibility to age, beauty, income level, customs of the society, compatibility has no link with these things.
Marriage is a beautiful relationship that is not built on the feelings of being in love, but it is building based on the actions of being in love. And compatibility is essential between husband and wife. It is understood that marriage is an agreement where two people tend together to live as one happy family. Compatibility is the way of living life by compromising, ignoring small mistakes, and admiring all his/her efforts. Islam very gorgeously describes the relationship of marriage by characterizing it by love, respect, safety, mutual rights, comforts, and responsibilities. And Allah knows best.
