Narrated Anas bin Malik ( may Allah be pleased with him ):
The Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) used to command us to marry and sternly forbid celibacy and say, "Marry women who are beloved (due to their good characteristics), prolific in bearing children, for I shall outnumber the Prophets by you on the Day of Resurrection."
[Reported by Ahmad and Ibn Hibban graded it Sahih (authentic)].
