Is Widow Remarriage Encouraged in Islam?

Recommended Posts

Assalam-O-Alaikum My Shia Brothers in Islam. 
I am not good in English, I hope you understand my words. :grin:

My question is, Is Widow Remarriage Encouraged in Islam or is it just Merely Permissible? Because Quran says that those who are not married should get married (Both Men & Women, Virgins, Widows/ers, Divorced). It's just literal interpretation. Don't know what Islam says about this. What if The Widow Woman don't want to get married in the first place because she have some love feelings for her dead husband? Same for the Widower?

Does Not Marrying and Remarrying Again would be punished by Allah??

Jazaak-Allah-Khair!!

Off-topic posts have been removed. Please look at the questions in the OP again. It is not about the difference between Shia and Sunni marriage. He wants to know if someone has a husband or wife and they died, can they live a single life or Allah would punish him or her for not getting married again? So, for example, an answer from the Christian point of view (copied from the Bible) or a secular point of view (copied from Wikipedia) would not be acceptable. This is ShiaChat and the OP wants to know the Shia point of view about remarriage.

Marriage is highly recommended, but not wajib. If a widow or widower does not wish to remarry, she or he doesn't have to and will not be punished for it.

Highly Recommended, Only for Virgins or for Virgins and Widowed/Divorced both?

Highly recommended for everyone, but not wajib. Obviously everyone who has a heart will need time to mourn the loss of a loved one and it might be an injustice to someone else to marry them during the most intense time of mourning. Basically, if a person has a legitimate reason to not marry, they should not marry, but most people should.

Brother @Shah Khan, both Hameedeh and notme are sisters (females).

The majority of ShiaChat members are probably male. I would not limit the replies to females, because brothers might give you really good responses.
