Divorcing a wife to seek knowledge

Q 2: I am married but marriage is Sunnah (acts, sayings or approvals of the Prophet) and seeking knowledge is Faridah (obligatory act) on every male and female muslim. Is it permissible then that I divorce my wife to seek knowledge?

A: Marriage is a Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). By marriage, a person keeps half of their Din (religion) for marriage helps them to lower their gazes (not look at prohibited things) and keep their private parts. Thus, you should not divorce your wife. It is worth mentioning that marriage will not prevent you from seeking knowledge if you have a strong determination (Part No. 20; Page No. 6) and a sincere intention. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
