I heard that the word "nikah" has a disgusting meaning to it? All this time I thought "nikah" meant marriage, but apparently it means to have sex.
What is the main purpose of marriage in Islam? And what is the purpose of sex?
Does the man have ownership of the women's body? Which is why he pays the mahr?
EDIT: I asked the actual meaning of nikha and the main purpose as well.
(And souls do become one after marriage in Islam and both husband and wife continue being husband and wife in the world after. Their relationship is referred to an eternal bond.)
