  1. جزاك اللهُ خيراً akhi for clarifying that, I thought Imam Ghazali was saying there was ikhtilaaf in the shafi mazhab since he said the 'scholars' disagreed over the virtue of marriage. But anyways the last question I wish to ask is, is it permissible for a layman to follow that opinion of the sufi scholars? I ask since I have a relative in his 40s who has still not married despite his family's requests and he seems to be religious in all other matters.
  2. Who were these scholars who preferred celibacy even when there was a fear of falling into haram? Since Imam Ghazali said the ulema disagree over the virtue of nikah. With some, he claimed, saying that nikah was formerly a preferable virtue but now no longer.

    And what the brothers al-Tahawi and justabro have said has confused me. Al-Tahawi gave me quotes from Shafi'i scholars saying that marriage is mubah and for those who can stay away from haram then celibacy is preferable. But justabro says its only for those who have no desire in their nafs for marriage for whom Shafi'i ulema say that celibacy is preferable. So I am confused by those two positions. Especially when I read Imam Ghazali saying that some scholars said that celibacy is preferable even when there is fear of temptation.

    Could you please clarify?

    جزاك اللهُ خيراً
  3. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته akhi,

    I have a question from my thread: http://forums.islamicawakening.com/f...elibacy-69635/

    Its about this quote from Imam Ghazali which I asked about and justabro answered but I could not understand his answer.

    "Be it known that the ulema' have disagreed over the virtue of marriage: Some stressed it to the point of claiming that it is preferable to seclusion for the worship of God. Others have admitted its virtue but subordinated it to seclusion for the worship of God, regardless of how much the soul yearns for marriage to a degree that disturbs one's state [of mind] and causes him to succumb to temptation. Others have said: It is preferable to abstain from marriage in this our age; but formerly it was a preferable virtue whereby the means of earning a livelihood was not illicit and the character of women was not censurable.' "
