Thank you Chrysalis.  You put it into words very well. 

I have not been a Muslim long enough to really look into the whole marriage thing for myself.  I am still trying educate the new muslim I am.  I only have experience with women before coming to Islam.  I am only sharing what is true for me.  I being new would want someone who is strong in faith to help strengthen me in my Islam, then attraction next.

"A woman is chosen for marriage for four reasons: her wealth, social status, beauty and religion.  So marry the religious woman, may your hands be filled with sand (a statement of encouragement.)
Fath Al-Bari 9:35, Muslim 2:1087

I can only strive to do the best of things when it is my time to marry.

Duane

To marry such would be an honor. Allah knows best.... I think it symbolizes her personality as religious and modest.

JihadX... until you find out that she wear the niqab to hide her identity to see her boyfriend.. I know women in Pakistan who have done this..

Its the same as 'beauty' its the outer cover.. and that can be a mirage..

So be careful that what something is symbol represents the inside..

Yes Hayfa - there are horrendous stories about how some Muslims behave and use religion as a shield - hypocritical attitudes. Have seen some firsthand myself. It can actually be very demoralising, and disappointing - even for existing muslims, let alone new ones.

However, better not mention them in front of our new muslim brothers & sisters, since thier perception of muslims and islam is still fairly new. Such people exist everywhere. I do not wish to spoil the strong imaan they feel about the ummah and islam. If you know what I mean. You are a revert yourself, perhaps you understand. For if they hear negative things said about other muslims, they may unconsciously be effected - for e.g looking at a Niqabi Muslimah and wonder about her intentions, or meet a bearded brother, and suspect them -because of the things they heard. Etc. Hope u know what I mean.
