Title: Please tell me what to do to get a Good and Pious wife ?


I am Years old from Gujarat INDIA. I am searching for a job since very long. But I am not getting a good payment job. Is this because of my sins ? I am very much worried. I am making DUA also. Now I am thinking to do some kind of business with some money. Please guide me. Also my parents are telling me to do NIKAAH as early as possible. I told them first I will get a job InshaAllah then will do Nikaah. Please tell me what to do to get a Good and Pious wife ?


Make DUA for all of Us.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You refer to two aspects in your query,

  1. What to do to find a good source of income,
  2. What should I do to get a good pious wife.


  1. While Allah Taala has decreed sustenance for every living being on this earth, we live in this world of means. When searching for anything one adopts appropriate means to acquire it. You should also adopt suitable means and seek counsel from appropriate people on what you should  do to earn earn an income. Together with that be punctual with your salaah and recite Duruud Sharif abundantly.

Constantly recite this dua too after every fardh salaah,

اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلاَلِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ، وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ 

O Allah, suffice me with Your lawful against Your prohibited, and make me independent of all those besides You.

  1. Marriage is one of the most important aspects of one’s life. When searching for a suitable spouse, consult appropriate people. The guidance and consultation of your parents is most important. Apart from adopting the means, the following duas are effective. Allah will put barakah in the means you adopt and guide you to the right spouse.

Read Duruud Sharif abundantly and the following ayaats of the Holy Quran.

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا [الفرقان: 74]

Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the pious. (Furqaan)

رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنْزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ [القصص: 24]

“My Lord! Truly, I am in need of whatever good that You bestow on me!”(Qasas)

We make dua Allah Ta’āla grant you a suitable marriage partner and halal sustenance. Ameen.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللهِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ حَسَّانَ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ سَيَّارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي وَائِلٍ، عَنْ عَلِيٍّ، أَنَّ مُكَاتَبًا جَاءَهُ فَقَالَ: إِنِّي قَدْ عَجَزْتُ عَنْ مُكَاتَبَتِي فَأَعِنِّي، قَالَ: أَلاَ أُعَلِّمُكَ كَلِمَاتٍ عَلَّمَنِيهِنَّ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَوْ كَانَ عَلَيْكَ مِثْلُ جَبَلِ صِيرٍ دَيْنًا أَدَّاهُ اللَّهُ عَنْكَ، قَالَ: قُلْ: اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلاَلِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ، وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ.

هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ غَرِيبٌ.
