Praise be to Allaah.
If the one who has proposed
marriage is religiously committed and of good character, and his living in
Sweden is permissible according to sharee’ah, or he wants to live in your
country, then pray to Allaah for guidance (istikhaarah) and accept his
proposal, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) said: “If there comes to you one whose
religious commitment and attitude pleases you, then marry [your
female relative who is under your care]
to him, for if you do not do that, there will be tribulation on earth and
much corruption.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (1804) from Abu Hurayrah; classed
as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
If this young man is living there in order to call people to Allaah and he
wants a wife who will help him in that, then this is the best of deeds. This
is the mission of the Prophets (peace be upon them). Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
“And who is better in speech than he who [says: ‘My Lord is
Allaah (believes in His Oneness),’ and then stands firm (acts upon His
Order), and] invites (men) to Allaah’s (Islamic Monotheism), and does
righteous deeds, and says: ‘I am one of the Muslims’”
We ask Allaah to help you
to do all that is good.
