Good Roots

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Al-Khaṭṭāb ibn Al-Muʿallá Al-Makhzūmī gave his son some long, beneficial advice to take a strong hold of. In it, [he said]:

My dear, young son, a man’s wife is where he finds peace, comfort, and companionship; there’s no life for him while there’s conflict with her. So when you’ve got it in your mind to marry a woman, ask about her family, for indeed, good roots produce sweet fruits.

Rawḍah Al-ʿUqalāʾ, p. 202.
