QUESTION:

What is the importance of marriage in Islam? Is it sunnat or wajib? I 
have heard that it is so recommended that if you cannot find someone 
to marry you should marry your sister's husband?  Is this allowed? 
Does the situation change if your sister divorces this husband? How 
about if the sister dies?

ANSWER:

Marriage is a highly recommended act in the religion of Islam. The Holy
Prophet (SAW) has said that whosoever turns away from his sunnah of
marriage is not amongst him. However, it is not allowed for a woman to
marry her sister's husband as long as her sister is alive and married to
the man. The situation does change once the sister dies.
