Foundation of a Strong Marriage: Blessed Dowry

Foundation of a strong marriage starts with a heart full of love only for Allah SWT and His Messenger (SAW).

“A man like you, Abu Talhah ,” she said, “is not (easily) turned away. But I shall never marry you while you are a kafir, an unbeliever.”

“What is it that really prevents you from accepting me, Umm Sulaym? Is it the yellow and the white metals (gold and silver)?”

“Gold and silver?” she asked somewhat taken aback and in a slightly censuring tone.

“Yes,” he said.

“I swear to you, Abu Talhah, and I swear to Allah and His Messenger that if you accept Islam, I shall be pleased to accept you as a husband, without any gold or silver. I shall consider your acceptance of Islam as my mahr.

[Umm Sulaym RA & Abu Talhah RA = perfect couple]
