Marrying at an early age and its benefits by Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan


benefits-of-early-marriageFrom among the benefits of getting married at an early age is the obtaining of children, which make the youth delighted at their presence.

Allaah, سبحانه و تعالى, says:

وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun.”
[Qur’aan 25:74]

Wives and children are a delight. Allaah promised that marriage brings about pleasure. This pleasure encourages and persuades the youth to take an interest in matrimony. This is also similar to how Allaah mentioned that children are a share of this world’s beauty:

الْمَالُ وَالْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلًا

“Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world. But the good righteous deeds (five compulsory prayers, deeds of Allaah’s obedience, good and nice talk, remembrance of Allaah with glorification, praises and thanks, etc.), that last, are better with your Lord for rewards and better in respect of hope.”

[Qur’aan 18:46]
