Islamic marriage advice and family advice

26 year old male needs to marry


I'm a 26 year old male who wants to marry, but the problem is my mother thinks I'm too young. I have many female colleagues and friends of friends, and I am finding it very difficult every passing day. No matter how much I tell my mother to get me married, she just comes up with crazy excuses or tells me to go find a wife myself.

What should I do? How can I find a girl myself? All the girls that I meet outside are promiscuous and immoral. I just can't live with myself anymore.

    • AsSalaamu Alaikum Brother,

      brother 26 is far from young, as the answer above said The Prophet (s.a.w.s) first got married when he was 25 year old. As long as your mature, responsible and able to support your wife your old enough. when looking for a wife the first thing you observe should be her religion and it should be Islam for that will benefit you and you're children to are quite older then me, i am 19 years old and i plan to marry soon inshallah all goes well.
      inshallah you meet the right one for you, Allah says in the Qur’an:

      “And among His signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts). Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.”
      [Ar Room 30:21]

  1. AsSalaamu Alaikum Brother,

    26 year old? The Prophet (s.a.w.s) first got married when he was 25 year old. And 25 is younger than 26, so you are not too young brother. May be you should remind your Mother about this one too, and then see what she says.

    You may also look at the local Masjids or any Masjids in any city near your city, and then talk to the Imam. There might be some pious Muslimahs who are also searching for marriages. I believe that the best place to find good pious muslim brothers and sisters is the Masjid.

    Also, during your searching period do not forget to pray Istikharah, and ask Allah (s.w.t) for the best Muslimah

    May Allah bless you with a good pious Muslimah soon, Ameen

  2. Wut kind of grl r u looking for?

  3. Hey, go for friend got married at 21 and his wife was 18.. They had a nikah and went to college in separate states, travelled, and enjoyed. They moved in together during his med school and now he's an anesthesiologist at duke. I think it's actually better to marry around your age; you can really enjoy your youth and child free years.
