The following short book discusses some important qualities found in a good spouse. Muslims must strive to adopt these qualities and search for a spouse who possesses them if they desire a successful marriage. This discussion is based on Chapter 66 At Tahrim, Verse 5 of the Holy Quran:
"…submitting [to Allah], believing, devoutly obedient, repentant, worshipping, and traveling…"
Finding the correct spouse is essential for encouraging one to adopt Noble Character. According to the Hadith found in Jami At Tirmidhi, number 2003, the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, has advised that the heaviest thing in the Scales of Judgment Day will be Noble Character. It is one of qualities of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, which Allah, the Exalted, complimented in Chapter 68 Al Qalam, Verse 4 of the Holy Quran:
"And indeed, you are of a great moral character."
Therefore, it is a duty on all Muslims to gain and act on the teachings of the Holy Quran and the traditions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, in order to Achieve Noble Character.
