Finding a Muslim Wife in Morocco

Finding a good Muslim wife is underscored by the profound role that a wife plays in shaping the foundations of a family and fostering a harmonious home. Beyond mere companionship, a righteous Muslim wife is viewed as a source of tranquillity and a partner in the journey towards spiritual growth.

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَٰجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍۢ وَٱجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“And those who say, “Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us a leader [i.e., example] for the righteous.”
[Translation of the meaning of Qur’an 25:74]

The choice of a virtuous wife is an investment in the spiritual well-being of the entire family, contributing to the fulfilment of religious obligations and the nurturing of a pious legacy.

Islamic Influence

Morocco, is a Muslim country deeply rooted in Islamic traditions.  From the call to prayer echoing through the air, the reverence for family, hospitality, and community bonds, creating a society where Islamic values and teachings are not just observed but celebrated.

Marrying a Muslim woman who was born and raised in Morocco offers unique advantages rooted in the profound influence of Islamic principles embedded within her culture.  The impact of Islam in Morocco has not only shaped her character but also instilled a sense of community, family, and respect.

Choosing a Muslim wife with this background can bring not only cultural richness but also a fulfilling and blessed marriage, insha’Allah.

Shari’ah Ruling – Migration From A Muslim Country

For those who are looking for a Moroccan Muslim wife to migrate from Morocco to come to live with you in a non-Muslim country, it is important to first understand the Shari’ah rulings and conditions on the permissibility of her migrating from a Muslim country to a non-Muslim country.  

Supported by evidence from the Qur’an and Sunnah, scholars have said that the ruling on Muslims living in a non-Muslim country may in some cases be deemed permissible, in other cases it’s encouraged (mustahabb), and in other cases, it’s totally haram.  The ruling changes based on the individual’s own personal circumstances, the purpose of their residing in the non-Muslim country and the degree to which they can openly practice Islam in the non-Muslim country.

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَوَفَّىٰهُمُ ٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةُ ظَالِمِىٓ أَنفُسِهِمْ قَالُوا۟ فِيمَ كُنتُمْ ۖ قَالُوا۟ كُنَّا مُسْتَضْعَفِينَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ ۚ قَالُوٓا۟ أَلَمْ تَكُنْ أَرْضُ ٱللَّهِ وَٰسِعَةًۭ فَتُهَاجِرُوا۟ فِيهَا ۚ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ مَأْوَىٰهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ ۖ وَسَآءَتْ مَصِيرًا ٩٧

“Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves – [the angels] will say, “In what [condition] were you?” They will say, “We were oppressed in the land.” They [the angels] will say, “Was not the earth of Allāh spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?” For those, their refuge is Hell – and evil it is as a destination.”
[Translation of the meaning of Qur’an 4:97]

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was reported to have said:

I disown every Muslim who settles among the mushrikeen.” 

Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2645; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.

Before thinking about bringing a Muslima away from her Muslim country to reside with you in a non-Muslim country it is crucial to extensively study the topic of hijrah.  Committing major sins whilst, in search of a successful, blessed marriage makes no sense…

Ideally, you should seek guidance from a trustworthy scholar or imam to help you learn and understand the shari’ah rulings around hijrah and to evaluate your specific circumstances, insha’Allah.

May Allah grant you the best of wives who will bring coolness to your eyes, Ameen!
