A Little Bit About Me
inshallah pick up messages after Ramadan.
Not quite sure how to start this off.
My friends would describe me as caring, funny, witty and friendly. There’s also many bad traits like my no sense of direction while driving or walking for that matter! Lets gloss over that for now.
Hobbies wise: I like walking, spending time with friends and family. I’d like to travel more with places like Africa being on bucket list. I like experimenting with cooking to my mums despair because she doesn’t like the YouTube twists to her recipes.
Career wise: Pharmacist, keeps me busy and on a whole I like the job. I hope that I can make a small difference to peoples lives but some days can be stressful, I guess that’s with any job. The nature of my job would be mean I’d need to likely be working in some capacity but I think I’ve taken the career as far as I’d like it to go and would say family life is more important to me than career.
Religion wise: I’d say this is a big driver in my life and plays a big part in all my life decisions. I, Alhamdulillah try and fulfil the 5 pillars of islam but there’s always room for improvement.
Family wise: I’d say I’m pretty close to family and see my family as one of my greatest blessings. We are an Urdu speaking family but my urdu isn’t great. I’d need someone who is comfortable in communicating in english. We have family in India and Karachi, so for me there wouldn’t be much difference between the two.
Deal breakers: important to mention that I’m looking for for someone who doesn’t believe in milaads, khattams, pirs and tarvis. Not one for causal dating and family involvement is important. I’m respectful of other people’s beliefs but for compatibility reasons I’m looking for someone who is on the same page as me with the above.
What I Am Looking For
Kindness, religion and education. Someone who is honest with me even when it’s the hardest thing to do. Someone who will treat me well because they fear Allah. Ultimately my qadr.
It is hard to define ones religiousness. I think for some I may be too religious and for others not enough. I think for compatibility it is important that the 5 pillars of Islam are fulfilled. I don’t think I could live in a household where the prayer isn’t regular. I’d like to improve in my deen but I don’t think that this is guaranteed although I very much hope in this. I think that I am open minded but probably not when it comes to religion.
