When is nikaah compulsory

Q: What is sunnah, farz or wajib marriage and what are the rules and conditions please?


A: When a person reaches a point where he cannot control his desires and there is a fear of falling into sin then it will be compulsory for such a person to enter into nikaah. If one has not reached such a stage then it will be sunnat for him to enter into nikaah if he has the means to do so.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
