Again Allah's Apostle said,
"O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry,because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), andwhoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes hissexual power."
(Companion of Muhamammad) Said Bin Jubair narrates that,
Ibn 'Abbas asked me (Said Bin Jubair), "Are you married?" I replied, "No."He said, "Marry, for the best person of this (Muslim) nation (i.e.,Muhammad) of all other Muslims, had the largest number of wives"
Further the implication of marriage can be inferred bythe following
Allah's Apostle said,
"From among all theconditions which you have to fulfill, the conditions which make it legalfor you to have sexual relations (i.e. the marriage contract) have thegreatest right to be fulfilled."
Marriage in Islam is considered to be an act of extreme virtue and piety.It is a kind of commitment in which both the partners find mutualfulfillment, self gratification, love, peace, tranquility, compassion,comfort and joy. The Qur’an mentions,
“It is He who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love)”
(Surah A’raf, Chapter 7 v189)
Further the Qur’an says,
“And among His Signs is this, that He createdfor you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility
