Well Jamilah where do i start. There is a hugeeeeee list.
becuase in islam they say the hildren follow the fatehrs relgion. So the guy you marry better have his faith all in check. You dont want to marry someone who will be a bad example, such as not praying on time, cursing, argues, shouts, impatient. You want to marry someone will will instill these values into his chidlren. Good manners, Strogn in his faith, prayes on time, Active, not lazy, Good in character, smiles to people, gives salams, hard working.
Not alot to ask for lol. But when marrying somone you need to think not only about yourself but your children. Will this person be a good father and teacher to my kids?? If not then dont think twice about it.
Someone who is good to his parents is important. Becuase they say, how you treated your parents your chidlren will treat you the same.
Alhamdulliah i have a great relationship with my parents, and for me i would want my husband to be the same.
Respect is very very important.
Hope that helped sis
