Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) said: “A woman is married for four things: for her wealth, for her lineage, for her beauty or for her piety. Select the pious, may you be blessed!”. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Wealth is one of the most deciding factors for a person in choosing a mate. A lot of people getting a divorce because of the disparity in wealth status with their partner. It is undeniable that wealth sometimes becomes an important issue. Someone who is used to living a comfortable life, when married with someone who is underprivileged will inevitably faced with various problems due to the difference in their life patterns. So, it is not a wrongdoing if you decided to choose a life partner based on their wealth.
Considering a life partner because of his/her descendants? Sometimes, people wanted to marry someone because of his/her lineage. Reasons like who the father is, the family background, or from what familly they comes from often affects people judgement and valuation in other people. If you decide to choose someone because of his lineage, it could only means that you wanted to marry a person whose origins are obvious.
The third most used reference in selecting a soulmate is beauty. We can’t deny that the first impression of a someone is their looks. Furthermore, a spouse is someone whom you will spend your lifetime with. So, try to find someone whom you will feel happy the most with when you see them. Although the real beauty is a beauty that radiated from the inside, it is not an easy task to find someone whose beauty is not only by the looks but also by their personality.
O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. (Al-Hujurat: 13)
Most of all, key factor in choosing a partner is his/her religion. As Allah said, Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Hence choosing someone because of their religion is a must.
