Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah
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.”
