4 Things to look for in a Spouse

A woman should be married for her

“A woman is married for four things: her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be losers. (Bukhari)

A man should be married for his

1. Religious background
If a man is negligent of his duties towards Allah, is he going to perform his duties towards his wife?

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Between disbelief and faith is abandoning the Salat.” (Tirmidhi)

2. Moral conduct
“The dearest and the closest of you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who are the best in behaviour.” (Tirmidhi)

3. Piety
“Marry her to the pious one, because if he loves her he will treat her well, and if he dislikes her he will not treat her unfairly.” (Al-Hasan al-Basri)

4. Righteous and trustworthy
‘If you find a righteous husband then marry him.” (Ibn Majah)
