Marriage at age 25
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved brother, you are well within your Shariah rights to get married and you should either talk to your family directly, or get someone whom you trust to talk to your family on your behalf. Most parents are eager to get their children married and settled, and if the message is conveyed to them with wisdom and patience, it is expected that they would surely succumb to the idea.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
