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

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
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.

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.
