Can a non Aalim marry an Aalima?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamu alaikum,

Can a ordinary muslim marry an aalimah? What are its pro’s and Con’s.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for an ordinary person to marry an Aalima. An Aalima   who values her knowledge and practices on her knowledge will be able to guide her husband and draw her husband close to Allah through the knowledge [ilm] she acquired.
