Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A girl received a proposal, boy’s father is a vegetable merchant, but boy is an engineer. Girl’s father is also an engineer. Son of vegetable merchant is kufu for daughter of a University professor?


A: According to our understanding they are kufu for each other. Generally a person doing a vegetable business is more careful of his deen then an engineer.

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