Why should one get married?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Why should I get married? Can’t I stay alone and pray and do sajda and sadaqa in Allah’s path. Marriage would lead me to gunaah and all?


A: Not making nikaah generally leads a person to bigger crimes and sins. Hence, marriage is a preference unless you cannot manage at all to undertake the responsibilities of nikaah.

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

قال عبد الله كنا مع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم شبابا لا نجد شيئا فقال لنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يا معشر الشباب من استطاع الباءة فليتزوج فإنه أغض للبصر وأحصن للفرج ومن لم يستطع فعليه بالصوم فإنه له وجاء (صحيح البخاري #5066)
