A Little Bit About Me
Selaam Aleykum. I'm 37 and work as an aircraft field service engineer. I have been traveling quite frequently for my job so I get to see different parts of the world. I'm simple and down to earth. Some of my hobbies and interests include: gastronomy, cars, movies, electronics, spending time with loved ones, eastern music, and myriad outdoors activities. Despite my worldly interests, I haven't lost sight of what's important, and that is to earn Allah SWT's pleasure. That being said, elhamdulellah I don't partake in any activities that are forbidden, nor do I deliberately wrong others. I work towards bettering whatever locality I reside in, and I don't forget about our brothers and sisters who are struggling elsewhere. It's impossible to gauge whom I am from a mere paragraph, therefore I would encourage you to take the time to get to know me.
What I Am Looking For
First of all, I'm neither desperate, nor am I in any rush to jump into a relationship. While this statement may be misconstrued by some as being conceited, in fact the point I'd like to drive home is that a decision such as marriage (perhaps the most important decision of your life) is one not to be taken lightly. These days, it seems, many are acting on passionate impulse when it comes marrying/divorcing without rationally thinking out the overall bigger picture. From my perspective, I would like to get to know a person and earn their trust first and foremost as a friend before proceeding to seek them out as a spouse. Afterall, the Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us that our deen is very much dependent upon our friends, and we should be mindful of the friends we choose. A true friend stands with you in the hardest of times, gladly celebrates with you in times of glory, and drives you towards being a better person. A spouse is more than merely a bedroom companion, housekeeper, or co-parent. A spouse is the person that ultimately completes you. This sounds cliche, however it couldn't be truer. A spouse has the missing pieces that make you a complete entity. Passion and infatuation fluctuates, however true friendship will withstand the turbulent waves that life throws at it. A strong friendship is the basis of a strong marriage. I'm looking for someone that is comparable to me in education, family background, and upbringing. This would help to minimize friction during the acclimation process. I've got a zero tolerance for smoking, usage of "recreational" drugs, and alcohol usage. There is no such thing as a social smoker, drug user, or drinker. There are many ways to have a wonderful time without disobeying Allah SWT. I'm not looking for anyone perfect, I'm looking for someone who is consistent and knows where they stand when it comes into the matters of their deen. We are in morally trying times, and it is important that I have partner in crime who knows how to stand her ground in this day and age. Allahu Al-Musta'aan.
