A man came to Maymūn b. Mahrān – Allah be please with him – to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Maymūn said, “I do not approve of her for you.” The man asked, “Why?” He replied, “Because she loves jewelry and garments.” To this the man said, “Well I have as much of those as she desires.” Maymūn said, “Now I don’t approve of you for her.”
