From Ibn Mas’ud radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The messenger of Allah sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, “O young people, anyone of you who can have sex, then he must get married. Indeed it (marriage) is better able to keep eye sight and better able to maintain vital organs. Anyone who can’t, then he must fast because it actually suppresses the desire to have sex.”

“I once married a woman at the time of the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam. Then I met the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, he asked, “O Jabir, are you married?” He replied, “Yes, it is.” “Are you marrying a girl or a widow?” asked the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. I answered, “Widow.” The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Why don’t you just marry a girl, can’t you have fun with her?” I replied, “O Messenger of Allah, I have several sisters. I was worried that if I married a virgin, she would be busy playing with my sisters. The Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “That means your excuse. Remember, a woman is married because someone views her religion, wealth, and beauty. Choose a good religion, you will surely reap good luck.”
