Answered by: Maulana Anwar Adam




A man who is not a hafiz, Is he considered kufu in marriage for a woman who is a hafiza?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful





Kufu in marriage only comes up in matters that would lead to difficulty in living together, the view of the majority is that four things will be considered whether a man is compatible with a woman: religion, being a freed person, lineage, and profession.


Therefore, a Muslimah cannot marry a non-Muslim, a free woman will not marry a slave, a woman with an established lineage will not marry someone with an unknown lineage and a woman with a good profession will not marry someone with a lowly job.  [1]


Regarding your question, a non-Hafiz boy is suitable to marry the hafiza girl provided the boy is pious [2]
