Attributes of a man worthy of becoming a good husband

A man went to see the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Saidina Hasan bin Ali bin Abi Talib and asked him the following question:

“I have a daughter. In your opinion, to whom should I marry her?”

Saidina Hasan answered the following:

زَوِّجْهَا مِمَّنْ يَتَّقِى الله فَإِنْ أَحَبَّهَا أَكْرَمَهَا وَإِنْ أَبْغَضَهَا لَمْ يَظْلِمْهَا


“Marry her off with a man who fears Allah (a righteous and pious man). If he loves her, he will respect and honour her. And if he does not love her, he will not be cruel nor abuse her.”
