Marriage and rukhsati
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.
Islam has neither specified nor restricted an age whereby the believers can choose to marry, thus it is permissible and lawful for one to marry at any age one wishes. It is also absolutely lawful and permissible if one for any reason wishes to perform the nikaah at a certain date and hold the rukhsati at a later date of their choice.
It is recorded in authentic and established Sunnah that the time difference between the Nikaah and rukhsati of the Prophets (saws) marriage with Hadrat Aisha (r.a.) was in excess of three years.
Thus there is absolutely no harm and no restriction in Islam if a boy of 19 years wishes to marry a girl of 16 and hold the rukhsati at a later date of their choice.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
