What do you see is the right age to be married? You'll be careful because your father in law's here

00:00:07 --> 00:00:51

would you say is the right age to be married? Man Rahim. Obviously it's different from person to person place to place the maturity and the development of people as they grew up. So you can't really put in a number to it. People are different, the circumstances are different. The financial levels are different, the way they've matured, where they've grown up, etc. So there's no real right or wrong age. Obviously, if somebody's reached the age of majority in Islam, we are encouraged to get married and not delay as long as there's no reason to delay person has, you know, sound intellect and they are able to, then inshallah they go forth and Allah will bless them, obviously,

00:00:51 --> 00:00:56

you sitting with the mashallah Shira, who is a counselor of more than 30 years, so he can add to that.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:03

With the I will definitely need you to add to that, and I don't like the way it's going because everything is coming, right.

00:01:05 --> 00:01:48

But it's good. I think it's right, I agree with what he said, you know, perhaps when a person, all I need to say to this is Don't unnecessarily delay, that's what I would say. Because, look, when you're young, it's easy, it's easier, you're a little bit more broader in your selection. So you marry someone, and you grow with them for as long as your two very good people who are compatible. But as you grow older, you started your journey already, the other person started their journey without you, you're going to meet up at 3035, it's not going to be so easy to come together. At that age, you become more and more fussy. As you grow older. This is my experience from the last so many

00:01:48 --> 00:02:15

years. So if you're 20, and you're married, it's much more likely that you're going to have you know, much more goodness by the will of Allah not to say that it wouldn't bring about goodness, if you had to delay but there's a hadith encourages us, oh youth if you're able and capable, don't delay get married. So following that we stick by that advice and believe that it is true, and it is the way it should be. So if there is a reason why you're delaying,

00:02:17 --> 00:02:46

then perhaps you know, let's hear it and let's let's see what it is otherwise without a proper reason. Go for it. I know a lot of young people, especially the girls, they say no, I don't want to get married, you know, because they witnessed divorces. They witnessed so many negatives. But you know we have to go it's one of the ways of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have to drive. Many people have been through divorce sometimes and after that they're so happy. They're so happy they marry someone else. Later on. It's not the end of the world. May Allah make it easy for us.
