Question: Are the "half your deen" hadiths authentic?
I hear it quoted often. For example:
Narrated by Anas ibn Malik, Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “When a man marries he has fulfilled half of the ‘deen’; so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half.” At-Tirmidhi Hadith 3096 (web source: alquranclasses.com)
Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever Allah provides with a righteous wife, then Allah has assisted him in half of his religion. Let him fear Allah regarding the second half.” Source: al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ 992 (web source: dailyhadith.abuaminaelias.com)
At-Tirmidhi Hadith 3096 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik: Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "When a man marries he has fulfilled half of the deen; so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half." (web source: islamhelpline.net)
Al-Haakim narrated in al-Mustadrak from Anas, in a marfoo’ report: “Whomever Allaah blesses with a righteous wife, He has helped him with half of his religion, so let him fear Allaah with regard to the other half.” (web source: islamqa.info)
There's even a Muslim dating website named after this, namely halfourdeen.com.
