Pearl of Wisdom

'I heard Imam al-Rida (AS) say: ''Alif, lam, mim. Do people imagine that they will be left off (on their own) saying: We believe!? and they will not be tried?, and he then asked me, 'What is trial?' I said, may my soul be sacrificed for you, what I know is that it is to be tested in religion.' He said, 'They [the believers] will be tried the way gold is tried', he then said, 'They will be purified the way gold is purified.'

Question : #889 Category: Marriage - Nikkah
Subject: Advice
Question: Salaam,

I hope this message is reaches you in the best of health and iman.

I'm emailing you in hopes of receiving some advice about marriage.

Being the oldest in my family and 18 my parents do not really know how to go about finding a potential spouse for me. I do not have anyone particular in mind, however, I have told my parents what I am looking for; essentially I would like to marry someone studying in the hawza. My family does practice Islam regularly but I sometimes fear that they may not be as religious as they should be. I currently live in America but I plan to live in Iran or Bahrain when I get married/have my own family inshAllah. I'm only mentioning this because I'm not sure what kind of family someone studying in the hawza is expecting to marry into. I just feel that this next step in my life will help me become closer to Allah(swt) and possibly the same benefits for my family as well. I guess what I'm asking is if there is a certain approach my family and I should be taking because none of us are familiar with the marriage process in America.

I appreciate any advice you could give me. Also if there is anything that I could clarify please let me know. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
