told us that people look for certain criterias
for their spouse being, beauty, wealth, lineage, and faith. The appropriate
criteria one should look for in a spouse is the faith.
One should observe how much a potential spouse loves the knowledge,
and the traditions of prophet Muhammed
, and whether or not he/she
is averse to it. This would be an indication of how things would turn out in
the years to come. If a potential spouse is averse to the knowledge and
following the traditions of prophet Muhammed
, one should pass
this person, and look for someone else that will obey the commands of
Allah, and make sure the family is learned about the deen of Allah.
A person that loves knowledge will encourage the family to spend
time learning the ilm , and speak about beneficial ilm, not ignorance
and argumentation. The children would also grow to be on
the tauheed (oneness of Allah).
And Allah knows.
