Narrated Abdullah: “We were with the Prophet, peace be upon him, while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah‘s Apostle, peace be upon him, said, `O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty, and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.'” [Bukhari]

Narrated Abu Huraira: “The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, `A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty, and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman [otherwise] you will be a loser.’”[Bukhari]

Mahr Mahr is the gift that is given by the husband to his wife at marriage. It can be anything in any amount, as agreed by the bride and bride-groom. Allah says about Mahr in the Chapter `Woman’ in Quran: And give the women (on marriage) their Mahr as a free gift …

Qur’an [4 : 4] But if you had given the latter a cantar (of gold i.e. a great amount) for dower (Mahr) take not the least bit of it back …

Qur’an [4 : 20] Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d: ” A woman came to the Prophet,, and presented herself to him (for marriage). He said, ‘I am not in need of women these days.’ Then a man said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Marry her to me.” The Prophet asked him, ‘What have you got?’ He said, ‘I have got nothing.’ The Prophet said, ‘Give her something, even an iron ring.’ He said, ‘I have got nothing.’ The Prophet asked (him), “How much of the Quran do you know (by heart)?’ He said, ‘So much and so much.’ The Prophet said, ‘I have married her to you for what you know of the Quran.’ ‘” [Bukhari]
