(Book #59, Hadith #382) Narrated Jabir: Allah’s Apostle (SallAllaho Alaihi Wasallam) 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 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 (SallAllaho Alaihi Wasallam) said, “You have done the right thing.”
