Hadith Regarding Marriage
- Do not marry women for their beauty. It is possible that their beauty may destroy them.
Do not marry women for their wealth. It is possible that their wealth may make them rebellious
instead. Marry them on the basis of their faith. A black maid who is a believer is much better for you.
[Hadith of Ibn Majah on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn Al Aas]
- According to Jarir Ibn Abdullah when he asked the Prophet (SAW) about a man’s gaze falling inadvertently on a strange woman, the Prophet (SAW) replied ‘Turn your eyes away’.
[Hadith of Muslim]
- O young people those among you who are able must enter into marriage. For it helps to divert your
attention from women and it is a safeguard against lust. Those who cannot marry must observe fasts
for fasting too is a safeguard.
[Hadith of Al Bukhari & Muslim on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Masud]
- There are four reasons for a man to marry a woman: her wealth, her lineage, her beauty, her faith.
Woe betide you!
Only enter into marriage with one who has faith.
[Hadith of Al Bukhari & Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah]
