Health Status - Pre requisit of marriage.

Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Rehem.

In Islam, when your thinking of marrying a person you have to be honest and verbal about your own health problems if any, this is fard. One can not hide their health problems to their future husband/wife because it may cause problems in the future.

 From experiance i can say that when your not told the truth and after 13 months you then find out the thruth about your spouse, it hurts very deeply. When i married i did not hide any health facts but the other spouse did. I thought for endless nights because i did not understand why i was not able to get pregnant. It was not untill after health checks for both of us, trips to Dr's offices, blood tests and more that i found out that i was able to have children and i shouldnt have been worried from the begining as the health problem was not from my side.

 If a man is sterile, he should tell his wife to be. Parents of both the bride and groom have to give health information upfront not hide it from their child and future inlaws.

Do not cheat your spouse to be & make sure both parties are checked for sickness before marriage contracts are signed. Marriage is not a joke and nor is hurting other peoples health and lives.

Fear Allah in your actions & seek treatment when needed. Allahu alim.

Ulama have spoken on this topic in depth, there are many articals available online for muslim youth to read. If your uncertain of your own health, please do get blood tests for sexually transmitted diseases, fertility and genetic diseases.

Allah knows best and Allah. AsghfirAllah if i have stated wrongly.
