Hadith Regarding Marrying Virgin Women

Narrated Jabir (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

“Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said to me, “Have you got
married O Jabir?” I replied, “Yes.” He asked “What, a virgin or a matron?”
I replied, “Not a virgin but a matron.” He said, “Why did you not marry a
young girl who would have fondled with you?” I replied, “O Allah’s Apostle!
My father was martyred on the day of Uhud and left nine (orphan) daughters
who are my nine sisters; so I disliked to have another young girl of their
age, but (I sought) an (elderly) woman who could comb their hair and look
after them.” The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “You have
done the right thing.”
