Marriage of a 19 yr old student

Fatwaa ID: 1576

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

mufti saheb I appreciate your efforts of deen and ask that Allah accept it.

what is the ruling of a student(19 y/o) getting married if he isn’t financially stable and doesn’t work?

should he approach his parents if so how should he go about it?

how does one know if they are ready for marriage?

JazakAllah Khair

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala bless you and couple you with a suitable and compatible partner with ease and barakah.

Marriage is fun and nice but comes with great responsibilities. The husband is responsible to financially provide for his wife amongst other things. He will be accountable for this. If a person is unable to yet provide due to being a student and there is no one who can bear or assist in bearing this responsibility, then he should wait till he is able.

We are unable to comment on your exact situation. We suggest you consult with those who know you better. In the meantime, try to observe fasts to control and discipline yourself. Keep yourself occupied with productive things.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
