Nikah is the foundation to start a family life, and its importance has been mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah repeatedly. Islam emphasizes the ideal relationship between a man and woman which requires a healthy, moral and secure environment where children can be raised.
Below is a quick list of things most Muslim Guys want in a Muslim woman. Remember, we are not talking about men at the moment; we are talking about women.
A Muslim guy wishes for:
-He wants a woman who is intelligent, but also has the humility to respect him, his feelings and his ability.
-He wants a woman who understands the role Allah has assigned for her towards the husband and the family.
-He wants a woman, who observes the commandments of Allah wholeheartedly, not a woman who just listens to lectures and advises without practicing.
-He wants a woman who can make Dua for him and also pray with him, because Dua produces patience, peace, positivity and power in a family.
-He loves to see his woman confident but with a humble heart.
-He doesn’t want a self-centered woman who demands to speak and refuses to listen.
-He wants a woman who brings Peace and forgiveness not Pain into the family relationship.
-He wants a woman who knows that her role as a wife is to support and kindly correct him though he makes mistakes.
-He wants the woman to be his support and shoulder when he is down or depressed.
10. Team work:
-He wants a woman who takes his side without questioning and criticizing his decisions every time.
The Holy Quran reminds us of family relationship:
“O ye people! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single soul and of its kind created its mate, and from them twain spread many men and women, and fear Him particularly respecting the ties of kinship. Verily, Allah watches over you” (4:2).
