on the side. But she should have deen for sure.

and how am i supposed to know if she has deen.. am i allowed to meet her in person and talk to her privately for like 30 mins before

marriage and get to know her ? is this allowed in islam

ANSWER: Wallaikum As Salaam!

Do not complicate your life reading these hadees on whom to marry.

Koran clearly mentions as Muslims with whom we can marry.

You are allowed to marry a Muslim womam and also women from previous scriptures. You are not allowed to marry a Kafir and an idolatress unless they revert to Islam.

As far as beauty, fame, character, family back ground and her religious beliefs in Islam is
concerned, use your logic & your elders judgement after seeing & finding out some details of
the girl's family in the neighbourhood and leave rest of the things to the Almighty Allah.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path
of Islam as per the Koran for rest of our life.

QUESTION: What about meeting her in person. .and talking to her before marriage

like meeting her in private..In her house only but alone and asking her questions that matter..

Can I do that ? Or else how am I supposed to know who and how good she is

As salaam Alaikum!

Are you sure you will get to know her if you speak to her

That's not the way, seek permission from her elders and let
her be with her cousin and not alone.

Then you can ask her what you want as well as allow her to
ask what she wants about you.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins
and guide us all to the true path of Islam as per the Koran for
rest of our life.
