• no • bachelorhood • in • Islam •

Imaam Ahmad – Allaah have mercy in him – said:

[Voluntary] bachelorhood has nothing to do with Islaam. The Prophet – Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him – married fourteen women, and he died being married to nine of them. If Bishr b. Al-Haarith had married, his affairs would be complete. If people left marrying no one would go to battle or go on pilgrimage, and such-and-such wouldn’t happen.”

He went on to say:

“The Prophet – Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him – would wake in the morning and his family would have nothing to eat and go to bed at night and they would have nothing to eat, [yet] he died married to nine wives, he chose marriage and encouraged others to marry.”

Imaam Ahmad – Allaah have mercy in him – also said:”There is nothing better for a woman than a man, and there is nothing better for a man than a woman.”

.
Taawuus said,

A woman is half of a man’s religion.”

Abu Bakr Al-Marrudhi, Kitaab Al-Wara’ p116-117.
