protects one`s

  • 1 It protects one`s chastity.

    Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud ( may Allah be pleased with him ):

    Allah's Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said to us, "O young men, those of you who can support a wife should marry, for it (marriage) is more effective in terms of controlling the gaze and it preserves one from immorality. And whoever cannot (marry) should fast, for it is a means of reducing the sexual desire."

    [Agreed upon].
