A Little Bit About Me
Assalamu alaikum. Talking about myself...this bit is like pulling teeth. I’m such a coach potato, I’m that easy-going...I should probably change my name to Edward, or Maris Piper...I’m so lazy, I give sloths a bad name. If lazy was a sport I’d win that thing hands down, every time. Lazy should be an Olympic sport, I’m still waiting for a response from the IOC on that...Kidding.
Active, adventurous, bit of a practical joker and a good listener. Spontaneous and decisive. One quarter banter, one quarter empath, one quarter intellect and one quarter romantic/gent. The only pouting I do is when I eat a hot chip, or a 🌶 I can cook also. Never used a Snapchat filter and I never will! My deen is my raison d’être and keeps me grounded.
Father to three beautiful teenagers who are very loving, articulate and wonderfully funny, Alhamdulillah. I feel extremely blessed to have them. If that’s a problem, then hit ‘x’, it’s a dealbreaker for me. Contact with my children is all very cordial. It was not a marriage of my choosing.
I believe in chivalry. Holding open doors...and walking through them first. Pulling out chairs, then pulling it away again so she falls. Of course, I’m being facetious. I’m not a meanie.
Tell her she’s beautiful, love her for who she is and always listen to her. Make her a priority, not an option. Love is a verb. That’s my philosophy on it, anyways.
What I Am Looking For
Someone who puts their deen first and is loyal. Can’t stress that enough. A good, heart, intellect and a brilliant sense of humour is a must as I’m quite playful myself. Someone who I can truly be myself with and vice versa.
To watch the daybreak and the night descend with her, in as many beautiful places on this Earth as possible, hand in hand, side by side, together forever. In Sha Allah. To hold her close and make her feel protected...and then dust her foundation off my shirt, when she’s not looking. I joke.
A home that will be full of remembrance of the Almighty, bushels of love, a generous helping of laughter and a good glug of adventure thrown in, for good measure, In Sha Allah.
Would prefer to meet or video call after initial interactions. Fine with parental/wali involvement and presence.
Or there’s always my Plan B:
Shave my head and retreat to a mountainside abode in the Himalayas. While away my remaining years learning Kung Fu and weaving rattan furniture to sell, so I don’t starve. Who knows...? Either way, it’s win-win. I jest 🤓
If you’ve got this far down, give yourself a pat on the back, a chocolate hobnob and your tired brain a rest...you did good, girl. May Allah grant you all that which you seek. Fi Imaan Allah. Aameen...🤲🏽
P.S. I have a beard now.
