Marrying a person who is one’s match

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Kindly assist me if possible. My eldest son is 23 years old and Alhamdulillah he is a hafiz as well. He is ready for marriage and it is his wish to marry in the Sayyid family (lineage of our Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). How do I find someone as per his wish. Please make dua that Allah Ta’ala grants him a suitable spouse.


A: Marry a girl within your circle. Many a times when you do not marry a match of your family then the marriage will cause pain and discomfort. Hence, marry a girl who is your match.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
