Download PDF: [S] A Proposal for his Daughter
People are always worried about who their daughters would eventually marry. Actually religion and piety should be the determining factor.
One day, someone approached Hadrat Sayyiduna Hasan Basri – may Allah be pleased with him – and said to him, “I have one daughter whom I love a lot. Many people have sent proposals, whose proposal should I accept?”
The great Saint replied, “Allow her to marry someone who fears Allah and is pious. In this way, this person, if he likes your daughter, he will display respect for her and if he dislikes your daughter, he will not oppress her.”
(Irshaadus Saari, Sharah Bukhari)
