Allah Taãla says in the Noble Qurãn, 'You are the best of nations sent to man. You command good and forbid evil and you believe in Allah'. (Aali Imraan).
Allah Taãla states that one reason for this Ummah being titled as the best of Ummah, is the practice of commanding good and preventing evil'.
"Marry (Waankihoo) 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."
These clear Ayat include a group of unambiguous rulings and firm commands.
﴿وَأَنْكِحُواْ الأَيَـمَى مِنْكُمْ﴾
(And marry those among you who are single (Al-Ayama)....) This is a command to marry. The Prophet said:
«يَا مَعْشَرَ الشَّبَابِ، مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ مِنْكُمُ الْبَاءَةَ
فَلْيَتَزَوَّجْ، فَإِنَّهُ أَغَضُّ لِلْبَصَرِ وَأَحْصَنُ لِلْفَرْجِ،
وَمَنْ لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ فَعَلَيْهِ بِالصَّوْمِ فَإِنَّهُ لَهُ وِجَاءٌ»
(O young men, whoever among you can afford to get married, let him
marry, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and protecting the
private parts. Whoever cannot do that, then let him fast, for it is a
protection for him.) This was recorded in the Two Sahihs from the Hadith
of Ibn Mas`ud. In the Sunan, it was recorded from more than one person
that the Messenger of Allah said:
(Marry and have children, for I will be proud of you before the nations
on the Day of Resurrection.) The word Al-Ayama, the plural form of
Ayyim, is used to describe a woman who has no husband and a man who has
no wife, regardless of whether they have been married and then
separated, or have never been married at all. Al-Jawhari reported this
from the scholars of the (Arabic) language, and the word is applied to
men and women alike.
(If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His bounty.) `Ali bin
Abi Talhah reported from Ibn `Abbas: "Allah encouraged them to get
married, commanded both free men and servants to get married, and He
promised to enrich them.''
(If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His bounty.)'' This was
recorded by Ibn Jarir. Al-Baghawi also recorded something similar from
`Umar. It was reported from Al-Layth from Muhammad bin `Ajlan from Sa`id
Al-Maqburi from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah said:
(There are three whom it is a right upon Allah to help: one who gets
married seeking chastity; a slave who makes a contract with his master
with the aim of buying his freedom; and one who fights for the sake of
Allah.) This was recorded by Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa'i and Ibn
Majah. The Prophet performed the marriage of a man who owned nothing but
his waist wrap, and could not even buy a ring made of iron, but he
still married him to that woman, making the Mahr his promise to teach
her whatever he knew of the Qur'an. And it is known from the generosity
and kindness of Allah that He provided him with whatever was sufficient
for her and for him.
