If I had ten days left to live…

قال ابن مسعود لو لم يبق من أجلي إلا عشرة أيام ، وأعلم أني أموت في آخرها يوما ، وليَ طَوْل النكاح فيهن[ أي : القدرة عليه ]، لتزوجت مخافة الفتنة

It is reported that ‘Abdullâh b. Mas’ûd – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

If I had ten days left to live, and I knew I would die by the end of them, and I had enough time to get married, I would get married for fear of temptation (fitnah).

Sa’îd b. Mansûr, Al-Sunan article 493.
