The family is society's basic cell and cornerstone, its goodness mirrored by its goodness, its corruption mirrored by its corruption, its strength mirrored by its strength, and its weakness mirrored by its weakness. Every healthy civilization has a healthy family, and every ill society has a sick family.
Genetic diseases such as "mental retardation, diabetes, hemophilia, anemim, heart disease and color blindness" can be passed down through the generations from parents to their offspring.
Islamic law has taken care of young people who are preparing to marry, has advised them against marrying relatives, and has given them intelligent guidance on how to build a family on healthy and stable grounds.
Consanguineous marriage aims to preserve the family name and strengthens and consolidates family relations. It also aims to ensure the inheritance so that the family money is not transferred through the wife to someone outside the family environment. Some of the customs, traditions and customs prevalent in some societies are strongly associated with consanguinity.
As a result, young people who are ready to marry must be notified of the disadvantages of cohabitating marriage and its detrimental influence on family security.
