All praises and thanks be to Allah SWT. Abundant salutations be upon His and our beloved SAW.
We all know people who are looking to get married, but when I ask some people, “What exactly are you looking for?”, the answer is something like, “a good Muslim” or “someone with deen and good character.” That’s all good and well, but I think that’s way too vague to be describing the person that you’re potentially going to spend the rest of your life with! So I decided to share “my list.”
What I am looking for in a husband:
This description is my ideal/ dream husband and I understand that someone wouldn’t be absolutely everything that I am looking for. But here goes:
▪️Someone who loves Allah SWT, His Messenger SAW and the Qur’an,
▪️who has good character
▪️who preferably comes from a good family
▪️Someone with the same understanding of deen as me
▪️preferably with higher eemaan than me
▪️Someone who is able to articulate his feelings, express himself, and communicate well
▪️Someone who is good-natured, very sweet, romantic, thoughtful, affectionate, caring and kindhearted
▪️Someone who understands me and who handles me well, especially at my worst
▪️Someone who brings joy to my life
▪️who fits in well with my family
▪️who is generally happy and positive
▪️Someone who is well-spoken
▪️educated in deen and dunya
▪️Someone who is healthy, not overweight
▪️who doesn’t have anger issues
▪️Someone who knows how to cook and clean would be nice, even though I can cook.
▪️Someone willing to help out at home would be nice too
▪️financially stable; able to provide and who is good with money
▪️Finally, someone who wants to marry me for who I am and who values and appreciates me and what I do, and who encourages and supports me in everything that I do and ultimately helps me along the journey to Jannah.
🔺Living with in-laws/family
🔺Travelling a lot for work
🔺Practicing anything haram
If you’re one of those people looking to get married, I hope that this list helps you to define or refine what you’re looking for in a potential partner. Or maybe you can share it with someone you know who is looking.
With best of du’as for your worldy and Hereafter success,
PS: I am planning to share my list of questions to ask in another post inShaAllah. If you need it urgently then just email or WhatsApp message me at any time.
