Assalamu 'alaikum warahmatullaahe wabarakaatuh
Alhamdulillah, I have been truly honoured and blessed by Allaah (SWT) to be part of a large family and would consider myself to be family-orientated and homely. My family and I spend much of our time together, with food being the epicentre of our gatherings. My contribution tends to be something sweet; I have a love of baking - cakes, cookies, brownies, you name it! A typical night for my family and I would most likely involve us all sitting around the warmth of an open fire, a cup of tea in hand with a slice of red velvet cake, or perhaps a plate of mouthwatering biryani and succulent lamb chops, sharing jokes, playing Articulate, Pictionary or even watching a movie. One of the greatest pleasures in life is most certainly spending time with those dearest to us, enjoying the blessings bestowed upon us by the Almighty. All praise be to Allaah (SWT) for the simple pleasures of life.
In light of the above, I think the hustle and bustle of every day life can become somewhat distracting to our true purpose. I therefore take regular time out to reflect and feel this to be beneficial for my self-development. I find turning to Allaah SWT five times a day helps me to reconnect and refocus. As such, the deen plays a pivotal role in my life and is one of my biggest passions.
I shamefully admit that I am a massive pogonophile and a grammar nazi. I have an eye for detail; one of my pet peeves is the use of slang or improper English. Having said this, we all have our own idiosyncrasies, unique from one person to the next; such is the beauty of Al-Khaaliq. May Allaah assist us in becoming the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be. Aameen.
Above all, an individual who deeply holds a love of Islaam and actively evidences this within his everyday life is desired; whether this be praying in a quiet corner in the office or a motorway service station. Being steadfast with salaah and passionate about Islam is of paramount importance; once this is in place I believe all other aspects, such as akhlaaq, tend to also fall into place. I do my best to live my life according to the principles of Islam and would like this mirrored in a life partner so that we can uplift, motivate and support one another in attaining all of life’s ambitions and our ultimate goal of jannatul firdaws al-a’laa. After all, is this not the true purpose and essence of marriage?
Being ambitious and hard working is hugely important to me; not only are we encouraged to excel in the akhirah but we are also taught to strive utmost in the dunya, maintaining a happy balance between the two. Being a reflective person, I seek one who regularly seeks to better himself. Ultimately, experiencing that unique "spark", a natural chemistry speaks volumes. Chemistry ignites the flame within one’s soul and good character keeps that fire burning.
May Allaah SWT bless us all with spouses who will be the coolness of our eyes, our best friend, our garment, and our happiness in dunya and akhirah. May He grant us spouses who will be a blessing upon us and place in our hearts mawaddah and rahma. Aameen.
رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَاماً
