Is There A Need To Have Savings In Order To Marry?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net
Question: Is it permissible to get married without any saving but having a job even if it is not a high paying job. I would assume this cannot be answerd generally so i can give some insight into my situation. I am 25 years old with a low paying job i have knowledge in my deen and still continue in seeking knowledge i can provide housing as i live with my parents in a accomodating house. My parents will also help where they can and the need for me to marry is great as i fear committing a sin be it minor or major. I have to say also that one of the greatest reasons i wish to marry is to have companionsip. So will it be permissible to marry of course with a woman knowing my situaton in truth without any deception.
Answer:

Assalamu Alikum,

Yes, once you can take care of your wife then in this situation you must marry. You do not need to have a savings in order to marry. Once you can look after your wife and provide a place for her to stay which will be acceptable to her, you should go ahead and marry.

And Allah Knows Best.
