..... I've been told that my profile was brief so I've tried adding more.....
Salam, my name is Khadija.
I was raised in Canada by a Mauritanian mom and a Senegalese dad. I am a simple girl, soft spoken, don't really get angry. I am shy and reserved around strangers but silly and crazy with family. I have a few close friends whom I've known for over 10years and consider family. I am more of a books/conversation person rather than tv/technologies. Not big on social media either, I like to feel present. I like to surround myself with individuals who boost my imaan and I try to do the same. I love to laugh, go for walks, and have meaningful conversations. My interests are broad but psychology and religion are my favorite topics. I absolutely love food (halal food) but I watch my weight as well. I enjoy watching sports/soccer games (grew up with brothers).
I have a beautiful 1 year old mini me. She's happy, healthy and friendly with everyone. I love her so much, Alhamdoulilah.
I got married to her dad when I was 21 and he's 10years older. I didn't know what to expect and he was a convert. He turned out to be a great guy and easy to get along with but unfortunately, the religious aspect was very lacking. After 4years of patiently attempting to get him to learn Fatiha, and talking to different Imams, I was encouraged to leave. There were other factors also, such as he's not supporting my practice and not wanting our daughter to learn Islam until she's an adult...
Anyway, I've just realized this big stigma around divorced people which I think is weird and ridiculous because this experience has taught me many things including what I want in a marriage, my strengths and weaknesses, how to handle the lows of marriage and how to run a household. At 25, only this experience could've given me such insights, so Alhamdoulilah.
My parents are great people, although my dad
has passed away recently, they weren't really practicing. I am the only one who actually practices and growing up, I wasn't allowed to wear a hijab until I get married. Unfortunately my ex perpetuated that sentiment as well. Now that I am a free bird, I wear my hijab proudly.
I am not in a rush to get married. I want to get to know someone as much as I possibly can before committing. I can't match with someone younger than me or over 10years older. Someone who doesn't pray their 5 obligatory Salahs is a no go for me and someone who isn't educated won't match either.
I dream of a man who will lead me in Salah. Someone who'd love to wake up and pray fajr together before having breakfast and starting the day. Someone who values family time and likes to joke and have fun. Someone who cares about providing but isn't money hungry or dunya hungry. A Slave of Allah who keeps learning and ameliorating themselves in Deen. Someone who will love and encourage my hijab as well as my progressions in life and faith. Lastly but not least, someone loving and caring who will eventually take my daughter as his own.
If you think this speaks to you, reach out. Otherwise, Ma as salama. I pray that you find your person Insha'Allah.
