The Rights Before Engagement

The Rights Before Engagement

As it relates to the rights of the spouses- O brothers, O beloved- there are rights before the engagement, rights at the time of the engagement, rights at the time of the marriage contract, and rights which remain throughout the affair of marriage

From the rights before the engagement is the right of choice, such that the person chooses someone upon religious commitment, rectification, and good character. Thus, the man desires the woman due to her righteousness, her religion, and her good character. And the woman desires the man due to his righteousness, his religion, and his good character,  because this is the foundation of goodness and happiness. And whoever is void of his or her religion is void of good. There is no good in a person who does not have religion, even if he possesses whatever qualities of goodness he may possess.
