2 INTRODUCTION Literature Review: Choosing a Spouse Islam is clear on the kind of wife you should be seeking. The Prophet (SAW) said: "A woman may be married for four reasons: for her property, her status, her beauty, and her religion; so try to get one who is religious, may you be blessed." This specifically defines just what kind of a companion we are seeking, for if we marry her for anything other than her religious piety, our marriage is bound to fall into misery. True, beauty and charm is hard to resist, yet beauty does not last forever and does not guarantee you her obedience and religiousness. Financial status is dynamic, and so is worldly status, yet religion strongly establishes a household, and it may be that through your intention of marrying her for her religion, the rest is given to you anyway. In another hadith, the Prophet (SAW) said: "The whole world is a provision, and the best object of benefit of the world is the pious woman." Nothing in this world is as valuable as a pious woman. This point has been stressed many times by Rasulullah (SAW), who himself, when asked what three things he loved the most, mentioned a pious woman. Once the following ayah was revealed: "They who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend it in the way of Allah, unto them give tidings of a painful doom. On that day when it will (all) be heated in the fire of Hell, and their foreheads and flanks and their backs will be branded therewith (and it will be said to them): 'Here is what you hoarded for yourselves, now taste of what you used to hoard' "[al-Taubah: 34-35]. Umar (RA) has been quoted to say that, when this ayah was revealed, he approached the Prophet (SAW), submitting that the ayah weighed heavily on the minds of the Sahaba. Rasulullah (SAW) replied that the best thing to be treasured is the devoted wife who causes pleasure when seen, obeys orders instantly

and takes full care of herself and her husband’s property when he is away. Abu Bakr once asked Rasulullah (SAW) what was the best thing to be treasured, and he (SAW) replied: "the tongue in remembrance of Allah, the heart filled with thanks to Allah, and a pious wife who helps in
