Shaykh Saalih Ibn al-Uthaymeen rahimahullaah said:

‘The most important attributes which a woman should seek in one proposing marriage are good character and Deen (Practice of the Religion). As regards wealth and lineage, then these are secondary matters. The most important thing is that the one proposing the marriage should be good in the Deen and in his character…’

[Fataawal-Mar’ah Vol. 1. p.50 ]

A man came to Maymoon b. Mahraan – Allaah be pleased with him – to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Maymoon said, “I do not approve of her for you.” The man asked, “Why?” He replied, “Because she loves jewelry and garments.” To this the man said, “Well I have as much of those as she desires.” Maymoon said, “Now I don’t approve of you for her.”

ASPIRING TO MARRY A STUDENT OF KNOWLEDGE
source: silsilat ul-hudaa wa nnoor, tape no. 345/7
asaheeha translations

Question: “Is it allowed for a woman to make a condition that the one proposing to her must be a student of knowledge?”
Shaykh al-Albaani (rahimahullaah) answers:

“She wants the one proposing to be from the students of knowledge, so what’s the problem? Just like her wanting a righteous man, (here) she keenly desires one who is (both) righteous and a student of knowledge. Of course, when she is making this requirement for him to be a student of knowledge, she does not mean someone who is not righteous. Thus, she means one who is (both) righteous and a student of knowledge. What is the problem with this? If only all young women were of this kind.”

Ash-Sheikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbad was asked:

“What is your advice, Noble Sheikh, for a student has just begun seeking knowledge, should he marry or continue seeking knowledge and then marry after having sought knowledge for a number of years?

So the Sheikh responded by saying:

“No this is not correct! What is correct is that he rushes to get married when he has the ability to do so. Marriage it is from the means which make a person become busied with knowledge, because if a person is seeking knowledge and he does not have a wife, he will not be focused, he will think a lot, and will busy himself with thoughts of getting married and issues related to marriage. So if he marries, he will lower is gaze, protect his private parts, and will be able to make all his time for seeking knowledge. This is something that has been experienced. Many of the students of knowledge who have excelled and become distinguished over their peers married early on. As for the person who delays marriage, and focuses only on seeking knowledge, he is not like the one who has given himself what he desires and wants, has made himself chaste and other then himself chaste, and has focused on knowledge. For indeed, to combine between them, and rush to get married, should not be belittled. The prophet Muhammad, sallahu alayhi wa salaam, said: “Oh group of young men! Whoever from among you has the ability to get married, should marry, for indeed it helps lower the gaze and protect the private parts, and whoever cannot, then he should fast, for indeed it will be for him a protection.”

I advise all students of knowledge who have the ability to get married, to not delay marriage, and to rush toward it; indeed it is from the means of gaining beneficial knowledge.
