In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
We acknowledge that covering the face for a woman is important. It is waajib in this era of fitnah and immorality and it is a sign of the woman’s shame and modesty. However, in choosing a girl, you should also focus on the character and conduct of a girl which is most important.
It is not necessary that every girl in purdah has good character and conduct. Neither is it necessary that every girl not in purdah has bad conduct. Focus in identifying a girl with good conduct. If she wears hijab, then Alhamdulillah. If she does not wear the hijab, do not disregard her. Do consider her. After marriage, use wisdom and diplomacy in influencing her to wear the purdah, that will be your achievement.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
