The Best Joy in This World is a Righteous Wife

Marry a righteous woman. Among all the pleasures and enjoyments in the whole world, the best of them is a righteous wife.

In a hadith from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

الدُّنْيَا مَتَاعٌ وَخَيْرُ مَتَاعِ الدُّنْيَا الْمَرْأَةُ الصَّالِحَةُ‏

“This world is temporary joys, and the best temporary joy of this world is a righteous wife” [Saheeh Muslim].

Shaikh Ibn al Othaimeen says:

“if Allah gives taufiq to a man to marry a righteous woman in her religion and clever in her mind. Then, this is the best of the things of this world. Because she will preserve his husband (from bad things) and preserve his wealth and also preserve his children well” [Sharh Riyadus Salihin].
