Marriage is Half Your Religion

The Sunnah indicates that it is prescribed to get married, and that it is one of the Sunnahs of the Messengers. By getting married a person can, with the help of Allah, overcome many of the traps of evil, for marriage helps him to lower his gaze and guard his chastity, as the Prophet ﷺ said in the hadith, “O young men, whoever among you can afford it, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and guarding chastity…” (Agreed upon). 

Al-Hakim narrated in Al-Mustadrak from Anas, in a marfu’ report: “Whomever Allah blesses with a righteous wife, He has helped him with half of his religion, so let him fear Allah with regard to the other half.”

Al-Bayhaqi narrated in Shu’ab Al-Iman from Al-Raqashi: “When a person gets married he has completed half of his religion, so let him fear Allah with regard to the other half.”

And Allah is the Source of strength.
