The monarch, whose coronation is also a few days ahead further stated reason behind marrying Zahra off at the age of 20 that he took solace from the Hadiths, especially the part where the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said
When you successfully raise three daughters and marry them off, Allah will give you a place in paradise”.
