I am a college student doing my masters in US. I want get married as soon as possible, but I am not financialy independent and I am worried that if I tell my family to get me married I would be a burden on them. I want to become financially independent also before getting married, as well as I want to marry very soon to prevent myself from wrong doings of the youth. Please provide me the right guidance in the light of sunnah
wa `alaykum salam,
In light of sunnah the one holding sunnah is like one holding coal. That is why the Prophet (s) recommended to marry as soon as possible, as it is half of religion and it protects you. Don’t say I want to be independent. All your life you are dependent on your family. No one can claim, “I am independent”. So between them and you insha-Allah you will find financial resources. You can work as well as finish your studies.
