Punishment for Rejecting a Religious Person in Marriage

Here is a Muwaththaq (Reliable) hadīth where the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) says if someone comes to you and you are satisfied with his manners and religion, you should marry him/her.

فَإِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ إِذَا جَاءَكُمْ مَنْ تَرْضَوْنَ خُلُقَهُ وَ دِينَهُ فَزَوِّجُوهُ إِنَّكُمْ إِلَّا تَفْعَلُوا ذَلِكَ تَكُنْ فِتْنَةٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ فَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ
Abī Ja`far (al-Jawād) said: ‘Verily the Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “If someone comes to you and you are satisfied with his manners and religion, marry him. Verily, if you do not do that, there will be fitnah (sedition) on the earth and great fasād (corruption)”’
