PIOUS WIFE IS YOUR STRONGEST DEFENSE AGAINST SHAYTAAN
Encouragement from a Brother
at the website of the MSA of University of Houston
I started looking for a wife, my only intention was to find a
muslim woman who could help me become a better Muslim. After
praying to Allah many times, I came to know that a Muslim brother
in my area had an unwed sister. I was told that she was 7 years
older than I was, had no college education, and had minor health
problems. Despite this, I arranged for a meeting to discuss the
possibility of marriage. When I met her, I was impressed by her
modesty (she wore a real hijab that covered everything but her
face). She was not attractive, nor was she rich. However, at the
conclusion of our meeting, I felt comfortable with the fact that
she was what I was looking for. After praying Istikhara, I felt

Allah, discussing what a great blessing the responsibility of
marriage was, etc. I think the total cost of the wedding might
have been around US$20.00 (we held it in my brother-in-law's
apartment). I had the time of my life!!!
fact that she is very stubborn and argumentative, she is one of
the best Muslim women a man could ask for. And I am NOT talking
about the way she wakes me up in the middle of the night for
tahajjud, the way she covers her face in public, the way she
investigates every action that I do, the way she will stop
talking to me if I don't read the Qur'an or go to the masjid
every day. I am talking about her fear of Allah and love for the
prophet Muhammed (SAWS).
Not bad for a woman some
people called ugly, who has no college education or money.
wouldn't trade this woman for anything in the world.
times when the discussion of marriage arises, I will hear one
brother after another talking about how beautiful and educated
they want their dream wives to be. Others will talk of love or
