Not getting married

Q: An ignoramus told me that a hadith says that if you never get married, your funeral or janaza will be invalid. Does a hadith exist in any collection that mentions this or something similar to this? If so, please give the reference and explanation of it?


A: This is incorrect.

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