Al-Arbaʿin: Elucidation of Forty Hadiths on Marriage by Muhammad Ibn Adam al-KawthariIn this collection of hadiths, the author addresses a subject that affects most people, if not all: marriage. He deals with questions on the purpose and significance of marriage, and tackles more controversial areas including forced marriage, marrying without the permission of one’s parents, and domestic violence. The hadiths are supplemented by a generous commentary which goes beyond a simple explanation of the wording of the hadith to include discussions on how the hadith is to be operationalized, or put into practice, and what implication it has on marital life.

If you do not do so, there will be temptation on Earth and extensive corruption. Al-Tirmidhi — Hadith So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for. Would that we knew which property is best so that we might acquire it! Narrated Abdullah: We were with the Prophet peace be upon him while we were young and had no wealth whatever. Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty i.
Selecting a Spouse: The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. You should marry the religious woman otherwise you will be a loser. If you do not do so, there will be corruption and great evil on earth. Of course, both parties have to agree to marry one another and they can not be forced to marry one another. After a man and woman have agreed to marry, they have to remember that the man is still not her mahram men prohibited to her, including her father, brothers, sons, maternal and paternal uncles, and nephews. This means they can not still deal with one another as partners in any way such as shaking hands, gazing at one another, being alone together, going out together, etc.

One of the recognized and indisputable commandments of Islam is that of marriage - the sacred union that takes place only between a man and a woman. In relation to this revered bond, there are many verses of the noble Quran and countless ahadith that encourage marriage for any single man or woman - of any age or background. This is not only limited to the young brothers and sisters who have never been married and are looking for their life mate, but even those who have been through divorce have also been encouraged to re-marry and to "complete" their faith. Allah SwT even gives us a guarantee that if we are poor or lack the proper funds, still we should not delay the marriage as Allah will take care of the couple and grant them bounties from His Grace and Mercy. In the continuation of Surah 24, in the above quoted verse, Allah SwT commands the believers to remain chaste and faithful if they cannot find a suitable spouse to marry until Allah SwT grants them bounties out of His favors.
