Marriage First or Seeking Knowledge? –[Person Asked a Specific Question About Himself]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] said:

If you are able to exercise patience and seek knowledge, then exercise patience; meaning: study before getting married, just as Umar [radiyallaahu-anhu] said that ‘’some people might be prevented from [seeking] knowledge due to marriage.’’ So when he gets married, he abandons seeking knowledge and becomes relaxed, and tires himself [i.e. it becomes difficult for him to combine  family responsibilities and seeking knowledge at the same time]. But if he has the ability [or strength] to combine the Maslahatayn [i.e. the benefits of marriage and seeking knowledge], then that is good, [as long as] he does not consider himself as one who will commit wicked deeds and fornicate; [for] if this is the case, then -by Allaah- it becomes more obligatory on him to get married [in order] to protect himself and guard his chastity.  [Abridged and slightly paraphrased]  [See link: http://www.rabee.net/ar/questions.php?cat=51&id=623]
