Question:Please explain the main purpose one should seek in marriage, and mention the characteristics of a spouse who could bring us to this goal. Answer: Not only in marriage, but also in all other stages of life, one should have a major goal, namely to obey Allah (SWT) and to gain proximity towards Him. This is mainly because any other goal is transient and futile, and will eventually experience annihilation.
Birthday of Imam Hassan ibn Ali al-Askari (PBUH)
The one who dies, not knowing the Imam of his time, will have died the ignorance death.
The most elementary form of knowing an Imam is basic identification; knowing who, from what line of descent, and with what characteristics is the Imam.
