Islam motivates the young Muslims to get married and have children.
The Prophet [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] said,
'O young people, whoever of you can afford it, get married. It restrains the eyes and preserves the private parts. But if he cannot afford it, let him fast, for it functions as a preventive.'
He also said, 'Marry fertile women, I will be showing off your enormous number on the day of resurrection.'
Picking the Right Spouse
Here are some of the main features that should be required while choosing a spouse for Muslim marriage
Din: It is the main factor you should look for according to the Prophet's instructions. This does not mean picking any Muslim, but the one who applies Islam in his daily life.
Conduct: A woman or a man who has good manners is considered a blessing as he has the grace from Allah.
The Prophet [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] said, 'Nothing benefits a devotee next to the fear of Allah than a devout wife. At the point when he commands her, she obeys him; and when he looks at her, she satisfies him; and when he swears by Allah that she should perform a duty, she would; and when he is away, she will guard herself and his property.'
The same rule also applies to the husband with regards to good conduct and fear of Allah, because bringing up children requires the efforts of both parents and not just one of them. As man is the head of the family, it’s his responsibility to choose a virtuous woman to be the mother of his children.
Allah states, 'O you who believer, shield yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is man and stones.' (66:6)
And He says, 'And join as-Salaat (the prayer) on your family, and be patient in offering them direction [i.e. the Salaat - prayers].'
When Allah's Messenger [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] was asked about the greatest sins, he replied,
'You should associate a partner with Allah that He has created you, that you kill your child out of fear that he shall join you in food, and that you commit adultery with your neighbor's wife.' (al-Bukhari and Muslim)
The prohibition of killing one's children is a necessary consequence of showing mercy towards them and protecting their body, minds and soul from any harm.
