This post is based on a small part of Mufti Yaseen Shaikh's talk last night in Madinah Masjid, Clapton, (Student of Mufti Umar Faooq and Mufti of MuftiSays)
Planning your marriage is more important than planning your wedding. Unfortunately nowadays, it is the opposite. Millions of people tend to spend most, if not all of their time preparing for that perfect-glamorous wedding.
InshaAllah this post will be of beneficial to you and your prospective spouse. You may choose as many as you wish, out of 100 questions - what you would ask your potential spouse.
One cannot stress enough how important it is to ask these questions so you may be able to understand your prospective spouse and to find out if you are compatible with each other.
Although many of us are already married, we can still use this as a guidance for our friends and families and also our children.
Masjids, and Islamic communities should be doing what is called premarital counseling...this is before engagement or nikkah or anything just for the 2 prospects to really know one another. There should be an imam who does 3 sessions or even more of premarital counseling in which the 2 individuals have to respond to a series of questions. Below is 100 questions (as mentioned by Mufti Yaseen, compiled as Majids 100 Premarital Questions) that might be asked of your future prospect...it is to your advantage (especially sisters) to give this to your future husband if be so that you can get a better understanding of him. However, I recommend that you all do it with an imam because it is less bias and the true colors come out.
