A Little Bit About Me
Assalam Alikum wa rahmatu Allah..
Not sure how to start... I think it is difficult to describe oneself. However, I would like to say that AlhamduliAlah I have been brought up into a household that has strong ethos in relation to the importance of Islam, education, good manners, respect for humans, and the love to enjoin good to humanity.
Allah has granted upon me great opportunities in this life. I've traveled to several countries in the world and been to Mekkah. As a person, I have a caring nature. Coming from a teaching profession background, I like to help people reach their potential or improve their lives. I maintain a positive attitude towards life, regardless of the difficulties we encounter. Hard work is crucial to my ethos. I believe that this life is but a one chance, so we need to focus on success in this life and the hereafter, without neglecting any. I have a great sense of humour with my closer contacts, but generally reserved with strangers.
I currently work as a researcher, but I strike a balance between life and work. I also like to spend time with family, with friends, and in volunteering. Work is a means for rizq and not the most important thing in life.
I like to have a ‘ me time’. I am versatile and I have a lot of hobbies including reading, and cross-stitching. Cooking is my knack! I enjoy cooking Mediterranian, Italian, and some South Asian dishes (Biryani is my favourite). I exercise regularly.
I enjoy deep existential conversations.This is a must for a meaningful relationship with me!
To recharge and relax, I like to go to natural places, sightseeing, long walks and swimming, which are abundant in Scotland!.
Though people think of me as being sociable, I am not a social butterfly. I would say I am obliging, amiable, but I don’t consider all my social circles as my friends.
May Allah grant every one the best!
What I Am Looking For
I am looking for someone who is a genuine human being. An honest, successful, educated ( to a university degree at the least), open minded, confident, trustworthy and committed person. Commitment is not limited to performing the rituals (prayer etc); commitment is about striving to be a better human and has goals in this life that they aim and work on to achieve.. I am looking for someone who is mature. A marriage partner who sees marriage as a complimentary and complementary exercise, a means to support and willingness to give. In a nutshell, someone who can be my best friend, as I mentioned earlier, deep conversations are crucial to any meaningful relationship for me.
N.B I am apprehensive of window shopping. So if you are interested in a serious conversation do please drop a couple of lines first before requesting access to my photos.
