39 What is the normal age of Marriage in Islam?
The age of marriage in Islam is when a person enters adulthood. A specific age is not mentioned. This in light of current science could be as young as 9 or definitely by age of 15. However it’s not an obligation by this stage but rather recommended as the institution of marriage safeguards from evil.

It is a Hadith narrated by Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Masood (R.A) that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) has said “O assembly of young one, whoever among you is able, he should marry, because it keeps the gaze down and protects the private parts. And whoever is not able he should devote himself to fasting because it’s the means to suppressing sexual desire”. (Bukhari 2961/1).
