8 ways of finding the right person to marry

Marriage is never an easy thing. We think of it as this amazing romantic bliss that we will somehow attain one day.

Sisters dream of marrying that amazing brother who has the character of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), the Eemaan of Aboo Bakr, the courage of Hamzah, the wealth of ‘AbdiRahmaan bin ‘Awf but the fact still remains, everyone wants to marry that one truly amazing person and it is not much different for guys.

We wish to bump into a Hoor al-‘Een that has lost her way from Jannah. I mean why wouldn’t that ever happen? It won’t happen, because you are daydreaming bro that’s why.

Now wake up and listen to this short lesson in some important “Do’s and Dont’s” along with other useful information inshaaAllaah.


And any other social network for that matter

Since we spend most of our time online these days, it is very easy to try to fulfil all our needs online, even the need of finding a soul mate. Now don’t get me wrong, there are marriages who actually do work out, and I am not by any means hating on brothers and sisters who made it work (whatever floats your boats akhis and ukthis, just keep it halaal), but let’s face it, the Internet is a very weird place.

Everyone always tries to seem holier than they really are, even a Kaafir could pretend to be Muslim scholar for all you know.  In the good old days people married other people who they actually knew, and life was much more smooth, in very broad terms.

But today you marry someone who comes across as religious online only to find out on your wedding night he isn’t really that strict on Salah, oh and did I mention he has tons of friends who just happen to be girls? And not to mention he smokes (sorry forgot to tell you that too, my bad) the point is, be very careful concerning ANY online proposals.

If the person is serious and a good guy, drop them your wali’s number and don’t communicate with them anymore, then you’ll know if the person is really a gentleman or not.


Looks more and more promising

This will open up the door for networking later on, because one of the main problems today is that a lot of people ask, ‘OK but how do I meet good potential spouses?’ and they often say ‘I don’t know anyone!’ but in reality everyone knows SOMEBODY.

Be it that friend who you only seem to meet at the masjid for big events, or your cousin who you don’t spend much time with, there is always someone you can befriend. But keep in mind that these individuals should be good practising people themselves because then they can help introduce you to other practising people who in turn might have brothers and sisters who are looking for marriage.

Trust me, it works. Try it for yourselves and see, but just don’t become that one sister (or brother) who ALWAYS talks about marriage and the opposite gender, because chances are you might get labelled as “thirsty” if not worse.

And if that fails, there is always facebook.


Do not confuse booty call material for wifey material

In the same way that you won’t find your amazing virgin niqabi wife at the club, dancing late into the night. You, yourself need to be looking in the right places, and this sort of brings us back to the previous point.

Attend lectures, study circles or maybe even volunteer to help at the masjid etc, all these activities will open up the door for you to meet the right people and once you get to know them you can raise the issue of marriage discreetly.

Remember most people who marry will tell you they got to know their spouse either through family and friends, or they might have actually met whilst doing the same activities, so try to be more active and don’t just sit at home feeling sorry for yourself. Oh and also stop going to the club.

DISCLAIMER: This website does not endorse any talking between the genders without the supervision of a Wali. Be a man and step up your game if you truly love her. Otherwise go to facebook.


Sometimes your knight in shining armour is just a miskeen dude in tin foil

Chances are, you’re not going to bump into Shaikh Sudais’s son, let alone the Shaikh himself, and even if you did, I highly doubt any of them would ask you for marriage (more like ‘SECURITY!’) So try to keep your hopes realistic, yes we all want to marry a Haafidh, we all want a sister who knows all about pleasing a husband but never had a boyfriend before. We all want a brother who is super pious with super long beard (the longer the beard the bigger the Taqwa right?) who also owns a house and has a car, plus he should be really knowledgeable too, like bin baaz knowledgeable, preferably not blind though, oh and a six pack wouldn’t harm either.

But we often forget, that when you marry someone, they still have their whole life ahead of them. Most of the wives of the major scholars married these amazing men whilst they still were ‘nobodies’ and similarly you teach your wife (with gentleness) how to be romantic and it is all a journey. If you think that you will marry that one complete person who has everything, you will never marry and that’s the harsh truth.

You will end up on facebook surfing from one profile to the other.


I mean at least this brother has his own house, so that’s always a plus right?

Most people don’t like doing this, for whatever reason. Most girls are just simply too shy to bring marriages up to their parents, in case the parents look at them as “horny” or a victim of teenage hormones. Others are afraid that if they involve the parents they will feel pressured into marrying someone they don’t want to marry, only to please their parents.

You remember that one time your friend mentioned to HER parents that she wanted to get married? And for her parents to help her look for a decent brother? And how they totally misunderstood her and now you heard that your friend moved back to Bangladesh and has 7 kids at the age of 21? Yeah that’s totally not going to happen to you.

Now what I am suggesting is a middle path. Bring the topic up to your parents, or if you’re too shy, speak to your brother or someone else who can raise the issue with your parents. And then ask your parents to look around for you, remember they can only suggest but the final decision still lies with you. And most of us really don’t make use of this option, which is very sad.

Our parents are the only human beings alive on the face of this earth who would do anything and everything for us, so why not consult them?


Believe it or not brothers, marriage is more than just mating and lying in bed. Shocking I know!

I don’t mean to scare you away by raising this question, as Muslims we should always aim to get married since it is the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet.

But sometimes, some people rush into marriage. They think just because they are physically ready (have urges etc) that they should get married, forgetting that even the Prophet actually mentioned that those who have the MEANS to get married should do so. Now having the means is not just having a mature body, or even loads of cash. Rather it also about being mentally stable and able to cope with the hardships of marriage.

Don’t worry though, in marriage all you need is love to make things work (like they always say right?) so no need to over think things, love conquers all! Except that’s a total lie, marriage needs so much more, and even though love is a key element in marriage it is not always what keeps a marriage going.

Remember marriage is not all sunshine and fun, sometimes you will argue sometimes you wont love each other as much, what will happen then? Will you ask for a divorce just because the marriage isn’t fun anymore?

What if there are children involved, then what? The point is, prepare yourself for marriage mentally. Read up on the rights of the Husband and the rights of the Wife, don’t just marry because you’re 20 and feel you have to. This husband will be either your Jannah or Hell, do you really know what that means?

Similarly this wife and future children will be your responsibility as a husband, Allaah will ask you about them and everything they do, so be prepared.


Because that is how I roll

‘Ofcourse I would, I am pure awesomeness, I am the very defin…’ if that is your answer then I can tell you right now that you don’t really have the right mentality for marriage. We often get blinded by the search for the ultimate partner that we neglect to look at ourselves.

We cry and say why won’t anyone marry me? But do nothing to change ourselves. How do you treat people when you get upset? What do you do if you hold a grudge? Do not turn a blind eye to all these important issues, rather tackle them one by one. No one is perfect but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be trying.

If you truly and sincerely work on your own flaws, and really do become more caring and loving then you will notice how people will look at you differently. People will start to think of you as ‘wifey’ material because you are good with kids, because you care for others, because you forgive people and don’t hold grudges don’t gossip etc the list is long but if you take one step at a time you will be married before you know it.

Well you would know of it, ’cause I mean you couldn’t get married without knowing about it, right? So technically you would know about it, but yeah whatever.

#1 DU’AA

Dua is the weapon of the believer, why not use it?

Because like anything in life, Allaah is the true reason behind things. Even though some people often roll their eyes and think ‘Yeah right the old, make dua brother/sister’ but if you truly have faith in Allaah and know that He answers the prayers of those in need, you will never get tired of making du’aa to Him.

Take the story of Muusa alyhi salaam as an example, in Soorah Qasas we are told about how he left Fir’awn and was literally fleeing for his life, his one concern was saving his own skin. But what happened? He made du’aa to Allaah, and Allaah not only saved him but blessed him with a wonderful wife. So in short, if you make du’aa and don’t give up Allaah will help you, and that is a promise!

السلام عليكم

Wallahi beautiful points – Jazakallah Khair

Also, as Muslims, Alhamdulillah, we should think about what Allah SWT says in this regard in the noble Quran which goes along the lines of: …the good men are for the good women and the good women are for the good men…
Surah 26: Verse 24

So in essence if you want a spouse that will be pleasing to you and Allah then be a person of Taqwa(God consciousness) and be concerned with how you interact with his creation around you.

We shouldn’t just practice Islam, but go further and retain true Emaan and then Ehsaan, which is the highest level insha’Allah.
May Allah grant us goodness in this world and the hereafter and protect us from Jahanam.

Knowledge is key, so learn InshaAllah.


i want good muslim wife
help me please
thank yon


MashaAllah very nice, i do agree with you, this is really a very serious matter. And mostly difficult for our sisters, i hope those who read this, it will help them to choose the right one for their life. May Allah help us all to choose the right one. Ameen.


I got married at 23 and I worked super hard to make the marriage work, and get to the marriage stage. I wanted to get married so much that I compromised too much on what I should accept from a man. Yes there is no Mr perfect but if you compromise as I did, you do marry the wrong person. My marriage ended 2 years later, after trying to lead my husband to Jannah, I was fighting against the tide, and there was no hope. With two people on different roads in Life, one Islamic and one not then it will never work, no matter how hard I tried to make him see Islam, and love Allah.

Alhamdulillah after regaining my self and knowing who I am, and What I want and need, I am ready to re-marry at the age of 26/27. I hope in sha Allah, this time Allah brings me my soul mate, my Husband for this life and for Jannah.


Ameen,InshahAllah sister,you will get…


I’v been givind dawa to a kurfar and in 4 month’s later she convert and we desided to get married.i was a revert to islam me also but it was a guidance from allah.and when we married she was really on the deen and when i teach her a sunnah she obey for about to month’s..but one day she began to lose hope so quickly and left me.and it was sad because she have done it in the month of ramadan,i have done every thing that i can to help her it this state that she was in but she refuse.and she return to drink listen to music and do things to make iblis happy.but me one the other side i’m here writing those words like it was today cause in still seeing those brothers and sisters the one that will be near the prophet one the day of resurection will be the one who have taqwa and the poor one’ i’m a poor man and seeking only for the pleasure of allah.and may my dua be accepted and may i gain jannah one day,insha’allah!may she comes and say i wana marry you and have kids when she comes i will be there for her all the time insha’allah.and as-salamu walaykum wa rahmatu’llah brothers and sisters may allah re-unit us in jannah..(p.b.u) The prophet muhammad


Akhi, there is no Dawah to the opposite sex. Men shoudl give dawah to men, and women give dawah to women. If you started on the wrong path then Allah will not bless your union. She only accepted Islam because she learnt it through you…. perhaps it was only for the purpose of marriage.

The means of Marriage must be Halal for the Marriage to be Halal and blessed. I hope in Sha Allah next time you marry the correct way, by approaching the Wali and asking for the girls hand from the Wali with taqwa and respect. Not meeting women alone. I can only feel sorry for you as you made a big mistake. And In Sha Allah you do it the right way!


I want to get married and ready to do.i’m lonely.alhamdulillah


I really appreciate the way you express everything…. Insha Allah i will get marry after ramadan after learning from my mistake in the past… I did cry days n nights to Allah for a perfect man What i get? My secret admirer for over 9years nw…Masha Allah he converted and we planning to have a halal life nw.


Wow whoever wrote this is truly awesome mashaAllah!


If someone assures that he loves u …and abuses u never give his hand in difficult times …use slang language if u ask him about future never assures for good future or for anything specific i.e about marriage plan or talking to ur parents about marriage or his parents about marriage …


and ask u for court marriage


Assalam o alykum ,
Pls tell me how to make dua so that all our daily needs fullfill by dua ??


يا حي يا قيوم برحمتك استغيث، اصليح لي شأني كله ولا تكلني الا نفسي ترفت عين
