A Little Bit About Me
Assalamualaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
My name is Umar, and I am just a Muslim trying to make his way through this life :)
By trade, I'm a software engineer. I'm pretty well-established in my career, but to be frank I detest the corporate world; if I had a chance to drop everything and become an entrepreneur I would take it.
How would I describe myself? I'd say that I'm the type of person who tends to keep to himself and mind his own business. I have a small circle of true friends, and that's the way I prefer it. I am adept at conversation when the need arises but I don't seek it out; small talk bores me unless it's with those I truly care about. I'm a very real and honest person and I hate fake people, and I don't use social media for that reason (among others). I love humor and wit and making my friends laugh. I am confident in who I am and I don't care what people think of me, as long as they respect me.
I consider myself a practicing, orthodox Muslim with pride in his Islamic identity. I do pray 5 times a day and practice all of the fundamentals.
In my free time, I enjoy reading books, writing stories, exercising, and PC games. I'm also interested in traveling after marriage, bi'ithnillah (after Hajj, of course)
May Allah ease your journey.
What I Am Looking For
I value intelligence a lot, as well as humor.
Someone who prays 5 times a day on time, who values Islamic orthodoxy and the Sunnah. If you lean toward "progressive" or other liberal ideas we will not be compatible.
Other than that, it's just a matter of whether we mesh well together and seeing if the compatibility is there.
