A woman is sought in marriage

24 March 2018 | 1 min read

Narrated Abu Huraira, The Prophet (ﷺ) said 1 :

A woman is sought in marriage for four reasons, i.e., wealth, family social status, beauty and religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a losers.

Getting married is one of the things every Muslim should look forward to. Not only is finding a spouse a worldly achievement it also completes one’s faith. Marriage is ibadah and it nature of human. It more than meeting a man and a women but it about sharing life with his partner for redha of Allah SWT.

  1. Sahih al-Bukhari 5090, Book 67, Hadith 28

Nobody is better than you. And you’re not better than anybody else. Be humble. Being in the comfort zone is wonderful, but nothing ever grows there.
