Marriage is a very important step in a Muslims life, something that should not be taken lightly at all – so in keeping with Islamic tradition it is important to ‘interview’ your prospective mate – yes it is not a job interview but asking the right questions can help you in deciding if this is the right person for you.  After getting your answers to these questions it is probably a good idea to pray Istikhara prayer (guidance prayer) and ask Allah if this is the person who you are to marry and have a family with.  Inshallah this list will be a benefit to you.  I am only posting the first 20 … please click the link to see the rest.
