▪️Is it advisable to marry an ‘Aamiyyah?▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

? Question:

The questioner says: Do you advise to marry a woman from the commonfolk (‘Aamiyyah), especially if one is unable to marry a student of knowledge?

? Answer:

If she is an upright woman who loves knowledge and the people of knowledge, then there’s nothing wrong in marrying her and supporting her in seeking knowledge. But if she is not known to be upright, then I don’t advise you to marry her. If it’s possible to find a righteous student of knowledge, then that is more preferable.
