Marriage proposal

Fatwaa ID: 115


Assa’lamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

I have a question please. 

There is a friend of mine who’s studying Aalimah and she got a proposal, she’s 19 and he is 21, he’s not a hafidh but he has very good Akhlaaq etc, her parents agree with him having very good Akhlaaq and said that they have never seen him upset or angry.. I just wanted to find out correctly.. from what we see there is kufu between them and she made Istikhaara and she got a very good feeling regarding it, she is not that type of person who would talk back against him ever or gloat about her knowledge or rub it in his face. They are interested in one another and their parents feel that she should wait until she completes her final year, which is this year انشاءالله.

JazaakAllah Khair

Wa’alaykumus Salaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You have not stated your question.

Perhaps you are seeking our advice on the above proposal. You state that both parties are happy and the parents agree. Moreover, the results of the istikhaarah, as said above, were positive. Allaah Ta’aala says,

فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ

Translation: “So when you have decided, then place your trust in Allaah.” (Aali-Imraan 159)

Accordingly, place your trust in Allaah Ta’aala and proceed with the marriage. We pray that Allaah Ta’aala places goodness and love in the union to be. Aameen.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
