Making Halal Easy – Convincing your Parents for timely Marriage

Late Marriages are a cause of many problems prevalent in the society. We have complicated the procedure of marriage too much. Let us learn how marriages were conducted at the time of Prophet Muhammad SAW and educate others as well. Why not go for the Halal Path when it is recommended? Why make the Halal so difficult?
Inspired Tidings




Sayyidina Ali ibn Abu Talib (RA) reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said to him, "Three things you should not postpone : the prayer when the hour for it arrives, the funeral when it is ready, and (the marriage of) an unmarried woman when you find a suitable match for her."

(Jami Tirmidhi and Mishkat, Classified as Daeef by al-Albani but Saheeh by Haakim in Mustadrak, its meaning is supported from other Ahadith)
It was narrated from Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) forbade Celibacy.
(Sunan Al Nasai, The Book of Marriage, Classified as Sahih by Allama Albani)
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "I have not left behind me any fitnah more harmful to men than women."
(Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "There are three whom Allah is bound to help: the mujaahid who strives (in jihad) for the sake of Allah, the mukaatib (a slave who has made a contract of manumission with his master) who wants to pay off his manumission, and a man who gets married, seeking to remain chaste."
(Jami Tirmidhi, classed as hasan by al-Albaani)
'Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allah be pleased with him) said to a man who had not got married: "Nothing is keeping you from getting married except either impotence or immorality."
Ibn Mas'ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: If I only had ten days to live and I knew that I would die at the end of them, and I had any desire to get married, I would get married, for fear of fitnah (temptation).
Marry those among you who are single, or the virtuous ones among yourselves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah encompasseth all, and he knoweth all things.
(Surah Al Nur 24:32)
Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that: "A man came to the Prophet saying: 'O Messenger of Allah, I am in charge of an orphan girl, two men proposed to marry her; one is rich the other is poor, we like the rich whereas she likes the poor.' Thereupon the Prophet said: 'We don't see any thing for two people in love better than getting married.'"
(Tabarani, and also in Sunan Ibn e Majah (only the last statement), classified as Sahih by al- Albani)
