The order to Marry

~Hadith – Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, No. 1, Narrated Anas bin Malik Radhiyallahuanhu:

“A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam asking how the Prophet worshipped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, “Where are we from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven.” Then one of them said, “I will offer the prayer throughout the night forever.” The other said, “I will fast throughout the year and will not break my fast.” The third said, “I will keep away from the women and will not marry forever.” Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam came to them and said, “Are you the same people who said so-and-so? By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and more afraid of Him than you, yet I fast and break my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers) .”

~Hadith – Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 4, Narrated ‘Abdullah :

We were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam said, “O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.”

~Saying of Salaf – Sufyan ibn ‘Uyaynah: Sufyân ibn ‘Uyaynah (rahimahullâh) said,

“The most nimble of creatures still have need of a voice. The cleverest women still need to have a husband, and the cleverest man still needs to consult wise men.”

Al-Mahr (The Dowry) ~The Noble Qur’an 4:4

“And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (obligatory bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) with a good heart, but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, take it, and enjoy it without fear of any harm (as Allâh has made it lawful). A Pious Poor Pious Man is a Better Marriage Suitor than a Rich Man Who is Not Pious.”

~Hadith – Bukhari 7.28, Narrated Sahl:

“A man passed by Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam and Rasulullah asked (his companions) “What do you say about this (man)?” They replied, “If he asks for a lady’s hand, he ought to be given her in marriage; and if he intercedes (for someone) his intercessor should be accepted; and if he speaks, he should be listened to.”

Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam kept silent, and then a man from among the poor Muslims passed by, an Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam asked (them) “What do you say about this man?” They replied, “If he asks for a lady’s hand in marriage he does not deserve to be married, and he intercedes (for someone), his intercession should not be accepted; And if he speaks, he should not be listened to.” Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam said, “This poor man is better than so many of the first as filling the earth.”

~Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi #3090, Narrated Abu Hurairah Radhiyallaahu ‘Anhu, Rasulullah Shalallaahu alaihi Wasallam said,

‘When someone with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks your daughter in marriage, accede to his request. If you do not do so, there will be temptation on Earth and extensive corruption.’ [Tirmidhi, Nasa’i and Ibn Majah transmitted it.]
