From: Sunan Ibn Majah
Chapter No. 11, The Chapters on Marriage
Hadith No: 1866
Narrated/Authority of Mughirah bin Shubah
"I came to the Prophet (saw) and told him of a woman to whom I had to propose marriage. He said: 'Go and look at her, for that is more likely to create love between you.' So I went to a woman among the Ansar and proposed marriage through her parents. I told them what the Prophet (saw) had said, and it was as if they did not like that. Then I heard that woman, behind her curtain, say: 'If the Messenger of Allah (saw) has told you to do that, then do it, otherwise I adjure you by Allah (not to do so)'. And it was as if she regarded that as a serious matter. So I looked at her and married her." And he mentioned how well he got along with her.
