Examine The One Who Wants To Marry Your Precious Daughter Or Your Beloved Son

In The Name of Allaah, the Most Merciful the Bestower of Mercy

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said:

If he [i.e. the man] is persistent upon sin, he is not to be married to, because some the pious predecessors said: ‘’He who marries his precious one [i.e. daughter] to an evil doer, then indeed he has severed her womb’’

Zaid Ibn Thaabit [radiyallaahu anhu] said: ”The husband [has been referred to as] a master in the Book of Allaah, and he recited: ”They both found her master (i.e. her husband) at the door’’ Qur’aan’’ [12:25]

Marriage is an important aspect of companionship and due to that the Arab name his wife ‘’A Companion’’. A woman is not to be given any consideration for marriage if she is corrupted in her religion or character; rather, he [i.e. the man] should not yearn for her since nobility will not be found in her.  And whoever marries her for the sake of wealth or beauty, he will hasten towards that which will lead to regret due to the choice he made.  And with regards to her religious state of affairs, perhaps she will become a trial for him, eventually causing the man to fall short in his conduct and nobility.  And Allaah’s Aid is sought. Imaam Dhahabee [rahimahullaah] said that Salamah bin Alqamah relates from Ibn Seereen [rahimahullaah] who said: ”Imraan Ibn Hattaan married a khaarijiyyah [a female khaarijite], and said: ‘’I will bring her back’’ [i.e. make her leave her misguidance].  However, she converted him to her way’’
