The order to Marry

Hadith - Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 1, Narrated Anas bin Malik

A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet 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."
Allah's Apostle 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
Allah's Apostle 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, r.a.

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).
