Answer

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

As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

You should not hurry in choosing a spouse. Marriage is a lasting bond between two people. In many cases where young people marry without considering the issue of compatibility between them and their future spouse, the marriage eventually ends in divorce as the partners are not able to live in harmony with each other. Therefore, it is important that a decision when choosing one’s spouse is taken very carefully and with the consultation of one’s parents and elders.

You should inform your parents about the proposal and express how you feel about the girl. Do not hide from them any facts about the girl, including the fact that she was previously married, even though she was divorced soon after getting married. After that, seek their advice on the issue and ask them to discuss the issue with the girl’s parents.

Constantly make Duā to Allah Taʿālā to guide you in all the decisions you make in life and save you from being hasty and rash in the decisions you make, especially in this vital issue of marriage. Rather than attaching your heart to the girl, make Duā that if she is good for you, you should marry her and if she is not the right partner for you, Allah Taʿālā should turn your heart away from her and grant you a suitable partner.
