‏النكاح (The Book of Marriage)
CHAPTER: IT IS PERMISSIBLE TO CAST A GLANCE AT THE FACE AND THE PALMS OF A WOMAN WHOM ONE INTENDS TO MARRY  

No. 3314

Abu Huraira (Allaah be pleased with him) reported: I was in the company of Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) when there came a man and informed him that he had contracted to marry a woman of the Ansar. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Did you cast a glance at her? He said: No. He said: Go and cast a glance at her, for there is something in the eyes of the Ansar.

No. 3315

Abu Huraira (Allaah be pleased with him) reported: A man came to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said: I have contracted marriage with a woman of the Ansar, whereupon Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Did you cast a glance at her, for there is something in the eyes of the Ansar? He said: I did cast a glance at her, whereupon he said: For what (dower) did you marry her? He said: For four 'uqiyas. Thereupon Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: For four 'uqiyas; it seems as if you dig out silver from the side of this mountain (and that is why you are prepared to pay such a large amount of dower). We have nothing which we should give you. There is a possibility that we may send you to an (expedition) where you may get (booty). So he sent that man (in the expedition) which was despatched to Banu 'Abs.
