زَوِّجُوا أياماكُم، فَإنَّ اللّهَ يُحسِنُ لَهُم في أخلاقِهِم ، ويُوَسِّعُ لَهُم في أرزاقِهِم ، ويَزِيدُهُم في مُرُوّاتِهِم
Facilitate marriages for those among you who are single, from the upright male and female slaves. If they are poor, Allah will enrich them out of His bounty, and Allah is bounteous and all-Knowing. – Prophet Muhammad (s)
