Thought Provoking

“Someone came to a father, asking him for the hand of his daughter in marriage: ”Sir I am ready to pay her any Mahr she wants! I have already a house and a car … If you let me marry your daughter, I would treat her like a princess”

The father told him:“There is only one Mahr you can pay! For that, I will ask you one question, if you give me the right answer, I will let you marry my daughter…
I won’t ask you to give my daughter wealth, house or high status; I want you just to give me the right answer for my question!”

The boy was so happy and he accepted the condition of the father.

The father looked straight into the eyes of the young man and asked :”What time is the Adhan of Fajr (call for fajr prayer) called exactly in your locality?“

The young man’s face turned to red then yellow, he replied after a long time thinking: ”I guess it’s at 4am? No … I mean 3 maybe?! Honestly Sir, I don’t know!”

“Dear son” said the father smiling: ”I don’t care of your high status or your bank account! My daughter is so precious, she is like a princess to me with her Hijab and purity so she needs someone who treats her like a queen! No one would make her happy more than a man who fears Allah and obeys Him. Performs salaah regularly in the Masjid. Only a righteous husband would give her an unlimited happiness by helping her to get closer to Allah.

سُبْحَانَ ﺂللَّــہ

If ONLY this was the criteria, then our Masaajids will be filled with youngsters.

May اللَّه سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى bless us with righteous spouses and bless our marriages with the best of love, understanding and righteousness. آمــــــــــين ”
