The Sunnah indicates that it is prescribed to get married, and that it is one of the Sunnahs of the Messengers. By getting married a person can, with the help of Allaah, overcome many of the traps of evil, for marriage helps him to lower his gaze and guard his chastity, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in the hadeeth, “O young men, whoever among you can afford it, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and guarding chastity…” Agreed upon.

Al-Haakim narrated in al-Mustadrak from Anas, in a marfoo’ report: “Whomever Allaah blesses with a righteous wife, He has helped him with half of his religion, so let him fear Allaah with regard to the other half.”

Al-Bayhaqi narrated in Shu’ab al-Eemaan from al-Raqaashi: “When a person gets married he has completed half of his religion, so let him fear Allaah with regard to the other half.” Al-Albaani said of these two hadeeths in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb (1916): “(They are) hasan li ghayrihi.”

And Allaah is the Source of strength.

  2. Hello would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price? Kudos, I appreciate it!

  3. Salam. You forgot to mention the fact that although it’s a sunnah, most of us would love to marry young, for brothers we cant afford the £50,000 needed for marriage. How is anyone supposed to save that kinda money? Most brothers come out of university at 21. Apart from getting a haram riba loan from the bank, there’s no way most brothers can afford the ridiculous extravagance of a wedding.

    I wish things were simpler like the actual sunnah of Nikah. Sadly all people ever care about is showing off to others and justifying it by saying “it’s once in a lifetime” truly disgusts me. In the UK, you’ll hardly ever come across anyone doing a sunnah wedding. Even if the 2 people themselves want a sunnah wedding, family and relatives won’t allow it to happen.

  4. I truly love your site.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own personal website and would like to learn where you got this from or exactly what the theme is called. Thank you!
