Is it permissible to refuse a good Muslim for personal reasons?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it considered a sin to refuse to marry a good muslim man for personal reasons, i.e. doesn't like him?
What are the bad consequences of such an action, on a personal level and in general, if there are any?

No, this is not considered to be a sin, because Islamic says that personal conviction has its role to play in marriage. (A woman may not like a man because of something in his appearance, and she is not sinning if she refuses his offer of marriage), but if you fear that you may miss the boat or that you may not receive a similar offer, then put your feelings aside, use your common sense and hasten to get married. 

From the answer of Shaykh Ibraaheem al-Khudayri. 

If a woman follows her whims and desires by rejecting a man who is religiously-committed and has a good attitude, she may be punished by remaining a spinster (i.e., unmarried). 

May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
