View Full Version : Do we get to see her first?

Something just occurred... should a brother wish to marry a women with full covering, do we get to see her before?

One of the four aspects to look for in a woman is beauty. How do we know this without seeing it?

Doesn't it inflict on the rights of a future husband if we don't like what we see?

It is his right to see her face until they agree that they will marry and then she covers her face again

Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When any one of you proposes marriage to a woman, if he can look at that which will encourage him to go ahead and marry her, let him do so.” (Reported by Abu Dawood and al-Haakim.

No one is allowed to see her face from men except her future husband, not his brother nor his father

Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “I was with the Prophet , and a man came to him and told him that he had married a woman of the Ansaar. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Have you looked at her?’ He said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Go and look at her, for there is something in the eyes of the Ansaar.’” (Reported by Ahmad, 2/286, 299; Muslim, 4/142; al-Nisaa’i, 2/73).
