Hadith Explanation

Refusal to Wed

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “He who is able to marry but still does not is not one of us.” [Kanz-ul-Ammaal]

It is also reported from the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) in Marfu form that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has cursed those men who say, ‘We will not marry.’ And similarly, may Allah’s curse be on those women who say, ‘We will not marry.’ [Kanz-ul-Ammaal]

To marry is a command from Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). He is “Al-Hakeem” – The Most Wise. Thus, marriage is an institution in the best interests of both men and women. Those who think that they are better off without the hassles of married life are, obviously, devoid of trust in Allah’s wisdom. Such people do not have their sights set on the rewards of the Akhirah, nor are they aware of the short-term benefits of married life. Even if they get by in their youth they live to regret their decisions in old age, or worse yet, in their grave.
